Insights: Why your story matters.
Do you hold back from sharing your story because you don't think anyone will be interested?
Maybe you know you have a compelling story, but you don’t know how best to put it into words?
Having confronted the realisation that nothing was working, Susan Payton completely transformed her business, and her life, by simply sharing her story. People who had been in her community for months, without engaging, began to connect. That connection built trust and as the trust grew so did Susan’s business. Within days she had more paying clients than in the previous six months.
Looking back on our conversation, I reflect on three areas of learning: the power of the sweet spot in creating connection; the freedom that comes with BE-ing who you were born to be and the importance of putting you at the very heart of your mission.
If you’re looking for confidence and clarity in who you need to be to succeed in your mission, this week’s Insights episode is for you.
