"I've been to 4 networking sessions this week and told my business story endlessly. It's boring! I'm bored! People's eyes glaze over!"

Yep -- it is a common problem. When sharing the same biz story over and over again fatigue can happen, just like it does for entrepreneurs making the rounds of angel investors and venture capitalists looking for funds. Or for nonprofits doing endless rounds of fundraising.

So what's a person to do? Learn improv skills, different story imagery techniques, and different story structures to change up your story and keep it fresh.

Because frankly, if you're tired of your story, it will bleed through other people won't be able to connect with it or get excited about what you are doing. That doesn't mean you abandon the story. It does mean you decide to play, have fun with, and get creative with your story so you have multiple ways to share it that keeps it novel for you.

Author Drake Baer says much the same but comes at it from the place of brain chemicals and Jazz. Go read the article -- it's short but makes terrific points about what creates pitch fatique and offers a few other tips for what to do about it.
