The women at my table went wild, which surprised me. All I’d done was answer the ice-breaker question “What’s the most fun you’ve ever had at a business event?” For some reason, a 30-year-old story bubbled up in my mind. I’d locked it away in my story vault — probably haven’t told it more than twice since it happened.
But I told it that night.
And when I saw how my listeners reacted to it, I realized it’s not just an amusing story; it’s an important story. It says something about me and about how my clients value me. It points to possibilities—if that can happen to me, it can happen to you, too, when you own your expertise.
I had locked the story away for decades because it felt like bragging. I’ll bet you have a story vault of your own.
Isn’t it time to let those stories out?
Join me for my free webinar next Monday, “Say What You Want to Say: for women leaders who are ready to be heard.”
I designed this webinar to help you get past the stories you always tell and find the stories you should be telling. And I’ll give you some tips on how to tell them memorably.
Join me on November 20th at 10a.m. or 7p.m. Eastern. I run a very interactive webinar, so I’ll be leading it live in both time slots.
It’s priceless advice from an award-winning speechwriter. And on November 20th, it’s free.
