Karen Dietz's curator insight, February 18, 8:43 AM

Ira Glass, the creator and storyteller of This American Life, rocks. The stories he and his guests tell are always interesting if not down right riveting.


But here Glass is not sharing about the mechanics of how to craft a story. In this short video he talks about the creative process, how/when some people short circuit that, and encouragement to get beyond that point.


This video applies to anyone engaged in storytelling -- and anyone engaged in any creative process -- from the arts to engineering.


For storytelling, you get better at sharing stories by practicing, getting better over time, and developing a body of work. Glass hits on all these points, giving us inspiration to both embark on the journey, and to keep going. 


Keep finding and telling your business stories! You will learn tons.

Karen Dietz continues to share the gems she collects and the insights that reinforce that we are and have always been storytellers.  Before written history the wisdom and history were passed down orally. Visiting here in Kauai the stories were shared/taught in movement and chant.


We are and have always been story tellers. The stories are thread that link the pearls of wisdom, knowledge, experience and insight together.

10 (More) Amazing Videos About the Creative Process -- The Fuel Of Storytelling | Stories - an experience for your audience - | Scoop.it
We hand-pick the web's best videos about the creative process from some of the world's most talented creative minds.

 

I stumbled upon this the other day and couldn't wait to share it with you. And I thought Friday would be a great day so you can have a totally inspiring weekend!

 

I've watched all of these videos and they are awesome. And each one is different. Each has its own unique message/messages about creativity, art, life, and work. Fabulous!

 

These are keepers and I've added them to my 'favorites' on YouTube so I can go back and dip into them whenever I need a lift.

 

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do and take away lots of good stuff to incorporate into daily living!

Fab Biz Story Example for Marketing!

Fab Biz Story Example for Marketing! | Stories - an experience for your audience - | Scoop.it

I was at a meeting today and my friend Barbara showed me this postcard (see photo above) she received in the mail from the motivational products company Baudville. Barbara runs Mind Masters, a small business coaching enterprise. As we passed around the postcard we all remarked at how personalized the card was -- mentioning Barbara and her company by name. Now that impressed us!

 

But even better yet, I love Baudville's creative use of story for promo purposes. From what I know about Baudville, it seems their culture is in alignment with their marketing -- which is what we want. Anyway, this is a terrific idea and story! We were all smiling as we read it. 

 

If you are not able to read the text on the photo above, here is the story:

"Once upon a time, a company called Baudville offered Barbara $25 to give their products another try. Barbara accepted the offer, but saving a bundle on some amazing employee recognition tools was just the beginning. As Baudville products circulated Mind Masters, joy erupted, scattering polka dots and moonbeams throughout the air. Goodwill became contagious, productivity soared, and spirits rocketed into the stratosphere. Some even say a unicorn was spotted that day. A miracle? Nope, we get that all the time. And that's how Barbara saved the day (and $25)."

 

What a hoot! And you can do this too for your biz :)) 

 

Have a wonderful holiday weekend everyone and chat with you next week. 

 

Keep sharing your stories!

It is all in the question.

So true Renee and I spend quite a bit of time with clients on the 'art of the question.'

We are talking about being in the Learning Mode rather than the Knowing Mode.
