The famed and much beloved self-help author and motivational speaker, Wayne Dyer, passed away this last weekend, yet his advice lives on.


In this post, written by Carmine Gallo for Forbes, he shares with us the secret to speaking success that also applies to storytelling.


Passion is a tired and overused word these days. When someone says, "Speak/tell with passion" it gets translated into speaking/telling with vigor, being loud, wildly gesticulating, and being forceful. All of that can convey passion -- but so can silence, standing still, standing rock solid in your convictions.


So what is Wayne Dyer's secret for successful speaking and storytelling that allows a better kind of authentic passion to emerge? Read the article and I think you'll be surprised. The points he makes are not commonly recognized but totally right on.


Enjoy this piece and may the storytelling Force be with you.

Love this. Isn't everything about passion - if it can be?

Rethink The 'Brand You' Story: Find Your Authentic Self

“This above all: to thine own self be true.” – Shakespeare If there’s one business slogan/fad/concept that’s in danger of becoming meaningless through overuse, it’s “brand you.”

Here is what I love about this article from author Meghan Biro!


"These days I can can spot a “brand” (as opposed to an authentic person) from the first word out of his or her mouth. “Brands” tend to be a little too perfect — packaged, programmed, and plastic. They’re pushing what they think we want to buy, not their real selves. I see this unfold every day in social media – for better or for worse. It’s like the difference between processed food and the amazing stuff you can get at farmers markets."


So true, so true. Follow the steps she suggests here and you will be well on your way to being more authentic. Remember, when you are talking about your company, it's not a pitch - it's an authentic conversation. If you want to grow your business.


If you stay true to sharing your stories and being real while you are doing so, you'll do great.
