Ever been asked to tell a story in an interview?
I love this simple but very effective way to craft your business stories. Even though the author writes from the viewpiont of sharing a story in an job interview, the outline he shares applies to almost any business situation.
There's only one step missing -- the last one -- Step 8. That's when you share your take-away from the experience: something you learned, a decision you make, the difference the experience has made in your life, etc.
Add in Step 8 and you are good to go!
