The Importance of Sharing Stories

by Lisa B. Marshall

When you’re speaking in front of an audience or making a presentation for a client, it’s really important to include stories. For each of your main points, that is for each question, secret, or tip, you’ll want to include a story that is an example of the idea you’re discussing.

This is crucial for a few reasons:

#1. It makes the presentation far more interesting and fun.

#2. In an informal and indirect way, it lets your customers and prospective clients hear about your professional experiences and it shows that you already have clients that pay for your expertise.

#3. Perhaps most importantly, people remember stories. People not only easily remember stories, but they retell them to other people—which can only help your business or cause!
