090: What a Business Story is Not

http://traffic.libsyn.com/bolderbusinesswomen/090_Aprille_Janes_Podcast.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadINTRO In talking to people I’ve uncovered some misconceptions about story that I’d like to dispel right now. A great business story motivates people to action. In order to do it right, you need to know what to steer clear of. KEY QUESTIONS TO GATHER A GOOD STORY What was your original problem? What was it you wanted? How did you feel then? What other things did you try? What were your results? How did that make you feel? How did my product or service help? What changed for you? How do you feel now? QUOTE “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou BOOK I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings Contact Aprille BolderBusinessPodcast@gmail.com Hello@APrilleJanes.com Twitter: https://twitter.com/AprilleJanes LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/aprillejanes Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheProfitFormula Google+:...

088: The Power of Story

http://traffic.libsyn.com/bolderbusinesswomen/088_Aprille_Janes_Podcast.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadWhile I’ve always talked about story and invited my guests to share theirs, I decided to shift to a laser-focus on the Power of Story to help you boldly stand out from your competition. The one thing that sets your business apart from every other one doing what you do is YOU. You reveal yourself through the power of story. I want to help with that and this podcast will do just that. Every business is looking for the key that unlocks the “know, like and trust” factor for connections that are real and lasting. That key doesn’t come packaged with dry facts and stats. Connection demands story. And there’s science out there to prove it. In this episode I explain why you need to leverage the power of story and what you can expect in  coming episodes to help you do just that! 3 THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THE POWER OF STORY Stories activate Oxytocin in our bodies otherwise known as the Love Hormone so they help us bond as humans (know and like). MRI scans showed that brains activated EXACTLY as if the listener were physically experiencing the story they heard or saw so they help us build trust. Our brains crave narrative to make sense of life. If we don’t have a story, our brains will supply one to fit the facts as we know them. QUOTE “The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision.” Neil Gaiman BOOK Tell to Win: Connect, Persuade, and Triumph with the Hidden Power of Story Contact Aprille BolderBusinessPodcast@gmail.com Hello@APrilleJanes.com Twitter: https://twitter.com/AprilleJanes LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/aprillejanes Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheProfitFormula Google+:...
