What is a Natural Storyteller?

What is a Natural Storyteller? | Building the Digital Business |

"You know that feeling, when you can’t wait to get home to tell your significant other about the crazy thing that just happened at work? The second you walk through the door, even before you kick off your pinchy-toe shoes, you’re saying, “You’re not going to believe this . . .” as you launch into the story, complete with revealing hand gestures, passion, and well timed pauses that effortlessly build to the riveting climax."

Anyone who knows me knows that I love telling stories. (Usually more than once.) The above excerpt essentially describes every single day of my life. Sharing life experiences with people who mean something to me is what makes these experiences that much more exciting.

Read below, as Karen Dietz sums up my thoughts way better than I ever could. Thanks Karen and Gregg!

I am a Realtor not a writer. I still have to use the story in both pictures and words to tell the story of a home I am selling. It is true a picture is worth a thousand words and together a picture and a caption should be not just information but a story. Call me. I can show you the difference.

Biz Story colleague Sean Buvala wrote this piece and it brought a grin to my face -- because IT IS TRUE!!

So glad he put together a biz storytelling warning label for us all. Good job Sean!

Unlike those annoying warning labels that come with every pillow you buy (and quickly remove at home), keep this one about storytelling front and center.

If you don't you'll be sorry.

Yeah, normal... too great a dose of everything is dangerous... be it positivity, story-telling, practically anything... "The dose makes the poison..." Like it...
