Stories That Stick

After every keynote I give, I go back to the AV table where someone helps me take the microphone battery pack off my back. And every time I have to apologize for how sweaty it is. I know, it’s gross. But there’s a reason. You see, every keynote has a set time limit. I usually… Read more »

Through the Story Trees

Through the Story Trees

Storytelling vs Humor

One of my favorite things is watching my husband watch reruns of Seinfeld. He laughs so hard. I love how his eyes crinkle in the corners. Though, I must admit, I’m a little jealous Jerry can make my husband laugh like that. I want to be that funny. Sadly, few can be as funny as Seinfeld. The… Read more »
