Posted by Andrea Simon on Jul 3, 2020 6:00:00 AM

201: Karen Dietz—Your Story Is Your Secret to Amazing Success

Posted by Andrea Simon on May 21, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Hear why stories are the secret to your success

As humans, we are all storytellers. That’s what people do. Our brains take the information they receive and create stories to make sense of it. By the time you are in your late 20s, you pretty much have created your own story, and changing that “reality” is very difficult. You only "see" what your brain tells you fits with your own story. And usually, you are the hero in that story. When a friend introduced me to Karen Dietz, a pioneer in business storytelling, I was thrilled at the opportunity to bring her to you. Karen shares with us her wisdom, and also her own story. Listen in, then think about your own story and ask yourself if it needs changing for today's times?
