A common thread running between my guests this week was the idea of being 100% yourself, whether you speak in public or not. Sue’s story of falling off the stage and Cathleen’s story of leaving home to find herself certainly resonated.

One person who modelled that brilliantly in her lifetime was Maya Angelou. Her very human story moved millions and made us love her for her strength and wisdom. I believe one reason that was true as the fact that she owned her story but it never owned her.

Find your signature story and, as Stephanie reminded us, use it in service of those you come into contact with.
