Story Secrets Revealed


Bo: What is your process for bringing out someone’s most powerful personal story? Mary: I usually ask a couple of questions to find out what your business is currently and what you want to do. And then I let you talk. You tell me your story and I don’t interrupt, sometimes for 20 or 30 […]


The 3 Things Your Story Must Have


There are three things that separate telling an actual story versus just giving an anecdote where you’re relaying something that doesn’t really have import or weight to it. If those three elements are present, it can usually be developed into a really well-structured story. Bo: What are the best components of a great story? Mary: […]


Pairing Your Story and Business


People often think your story has to fit perfectly with your business. My business has nothing to do with football and I often share stories from my past, which is sports and football. I recently chatted with my story structure coach Mary Kincaid about this very topic because we both get asked about it all […]

By the time we hit day 3 of my event, it’s just totally ON. The level of participation and energy people bring just keeps intensifying, even though we’ve had a couple of long days where we’ve worked our tails off. I always start the event by saying that we’re going to fight for each other—fight […]


Personal Story Power Event: Sneak Peek, Part 2


“If you want to command Mother Nature, you must obey her.” The way I move on stage has everything to do with that quote. I move the way I do because I am true to my own nature. But most of us are so far from who we are naturally that we’re stumbling into Starbucks […]


Personal Story Power Event: Sneak Peek, Part 1


The energy on the first day of my Personal Story Power Event is electric. Actually, every day of it is, but there’s nothing like when you hit the stage for the first time. And the first thing I do once I’m out there is to bring everyone else up there too. This event is for […]
