I agree with business consultant Karen Dietz that Robin Williams was a rare talent who had the unique talent of making us laugh at ourselves.  He will be missed.  Aloha, Russ.

Randy Bauer's curator insight, August 14, 5:17 PM

Tell a funny story. Share a comic from the paper or the internet. Express yourself with abundant enthusiasm. Try bringing a smile or laughter to someone across from you. It really is the "best medicine.

 

We have all been blessed to laugh with Robin Williams.

Thanks Karen! I bought your new book Business Strorytelling for Dummies as soon as it got out. Great work! I am actually writing my own book about business storytelling. Finland needs one in Finnish language.The interest here is kind of building. I hope by fall when the book is out, it is in the roof :)
Karen Dietz's comment, March 27, 4:34 PM
I am so excited for your Mervi! How wonderful about your book. And many thanks for grabbing mine :) Glad you like it. The more the merrier. Make sure I know when your book is out so I can buy my own copy and possibly do a review. Thanks!
Mervi Rauhala's comment, March 28, 3:04 AM
Karen, I'll be glad to tell you when the book is out but it might be tricky for you to read it since it will be only available in Finnish. Finland is quite a small nation. Only 5 million people and culturally we are quite original too. That is one reason why we wanted to write a book just for Finnish audience. Things that work in American or other cultures don't necessarily work here. More about my wonderfull and weird country: http://finland.fi/ :)

Mister Rogers, Boston Tragedy, & The Rest of The Story

Mister Rogers, Boston Tragedy, & The Rest of The Story | Just Story It Biz Storytelling | Scoop.it
John Sutter says all of us are geared to help, and the responses to the Boston bombings show that.
Karen Dietz's insight:

The Mister Rogers quote about 'look for the helpers' has gone viral in response to the bombings in Boston. But a missing piece of his message is not making the rounds.


I'm on the road now working with clients. Well, this morning in my hotel I was listening to CNN Headline News while cycling through emails. I perked up when they ran the video clip of Mister Rogers where he shares words of wisdom from his mom. 


Yes, it is about helpers. But what all the other tweets and video clips show is only the beginning of the story. There is an even more important message that Mister Rogers conveys!!


I really like the clip shared here by CNN because it also talks about how the media can share more rounded stories. In the hunt for heroes (because we are slaves to the Hero's Journey), we often forget about sharing stories with the frame of 'community.' Telling the story of helpers and the individual stories of helpers helps us know and understand the power of community.


Should I tell you the end of the Mister Rogers quote/story?


Nope -- I won't spoil it for you. Watch the video -- it's short -- and get the powerful key message Mister Rogers wants to share with us all.


You'll be glad you did.

"Look for the helpers . . . "

Karen Dietz's comment, April 21, 2013 1:42 PM
I appreciate all of your comments and am delighted that you connected to the forgotten key message of the story :)
ozziegontang's curator insight, April 22, 2013 7:51 AM

We are herd/pack animals who call ourselves human beings or social animals.  The helpers are people who revert back to their instinct to help a fellow man.  Often at peril to their own lives. Often sacrificing their own life to save another.  When you look at the derivation of "sacrifice" it is made up of two Latin words "sacra" and "facio"  that is "to make holy."


Bombshel says it beautifully. This is how I shared the Power of One back in 2010 about a dear friend, Rauni Prittinen King who is the co-founder with Dr. Mimi Guarneri of the Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine.


The Power of One united is a force  that reunites body/mind/spirit back into the basics of being: human.

Creating Great Images With Quotes Is Like Creating Flags For Your Fans To Wave: 3 Free Tools To Create Your Own

Creating Great Images With Quotes Is Like Creating Flags For Your Fans To Wave: 3 Free Tools To Create Your Own | Just Story It Biz Storytelling | Scoop.it

Via Robin Good
Karen Dietz's insight:

Hey folks -- these tools are not specifically about storytelling, but they can be used to help you share your brand.


Quotes are very popular and many businesses use them to connect with customers and prospects. These are 3 fun tools to turn quotes into more visually appealing pieces; it's a slice of visual storytelling.


I've played with trying to make quotes more interesting on my own using the computer programs I have available now. And it takes waaaaaayyyy tooooo much time -- plus I'm not happy with the results. So I've stopped doing that. Until now!


Here are 3 ways I thought of for myself to tell the Just Story It 'story' using these tools:

  1. I like to use quotes at the end of my presentations. Now I can jazz up those quotes and make them more visually memorable.
  2. I can take storytelling quotes, use these tools to make them look really cool, then share them on my website, Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, etc. That will be fun!
  3. Share my quotes in fun ways in my email newsletters.


Who know what other ideas I'll come up with? Now I have the tools, I'll be able to play with quotes in simple and less time-consuming ways. Yeah!


Here's hoping you have just as much fun :) The links are:

Kate Williams's curator insight, October 28, 2013 7:01 AM

November's focus for Soical Biz is IMAGES (following the focus on Pinterest in October). There are some really helpful free tools available to help any entrepreneur, image-challenged or not, make an impact at image hungry social sites e.g. Pinterest, Facebook and Google+. There's no doubt images draw attention and drive visibility and traffic.

Maria Eva Blaiotta's curator insight, March 24, 10:24 PM

Free tools which will help you create your own images with quotes.
