October 30, 2015

DON’T FORGET. The Mindset X event is December the 12th. It’s the only event I’m hosting for under £3,000 and it will get your shit in order!!!

WHY are stories important? Guess what…

Successful comedians don’t tell jokes, they tell stories..

Our greatest leaders tell stories..

Our imperfect story is what gets people hooked. Our most ridiculous and embarrassing story builds not

only empathy but trust too. They make you human.

Don’t share only the highlights

..the good moments.
