The 3 Elements Your Story Must Have

Bo: What are the top elements you look for in a good story? Mary: There are always three things I’m looking for—because one of the things people come to me for is figuring out which story to tell. Number one is it has to be something that makes you vulnerable. The one that you don’t […]

Tell Your Story Now

Everyone who works with me, either by coming to the Personal Story Power Event or joining my yearlong coaching program, knows my story structure coach Mary Kincaid. She is brilliant at breaking down story. Whenever I’m thinking of a story to use, I go to her with questions like, “Where should I start? What do […]

The Next Chapter

When I stopped playing football and started studying acting, it was survival. I had to find a place and create a platform to let all the TNT, all the energy I had played with—out. So I moved to New York City. I wanted to write. I wanted to tell my story. I wanted to perform […]

Name Your Enemy

You know the timeless story of David and Goliath, right? It’s arguably the most famous underdog story in history. The smaller, weaker opponent faces someone much bigger and stronger, and comes out on top.

“I don’t know how to start my story. Where do I begin?” It’s one of the questions I get the most. You start with a moment that made you who you are today. For a lot of us, it happens between the ages of 9 and 12. And it’s probably something that you were told […]

Speaking into Your Audience’s Greatness

The microphones are going to be taken by the leaders who are healthy, eventually. I don’t know when. We’re being led, for the most part, by narcissists—people who are unresolved. This is the subtext of what’s going on inside their head when they’re in front of people: “How am I doing?” They’re talking but what […]

Moving with Purpose

Your feet are in shoes all day and they get tight. As soon as they relax and open up, your whole body opens up. That’s what all great performers are looking for. The reason you gravitate toward them, or are attracted to them, is because the space they create is safe and secure—that’s because they […]

Getting Reckless on Stage

The audience doesn’t want to see you be perfect on stage. What we really want to see is your humanity. So when you’re rehearsing your story, it’s not to get every word right, it’s to attach the essence of your story to your molecules. So that it’s inside of you. By the time you’re on […]

Training Your Kids on Leadership

Every summer I talk to thousands of high school students who want to become doctors, scientists and technologists. They don’t just want to go into those professions—they want to lead them. I share why mastering the expression of their personal story is crucial to achieving greatness in every part of life. You’ll hear some of […]
