  • 351. 351 - Refresh on the Importance of Heart-Centered Storytelling for Nonprofits

    24:13
    Why is Storytelling so important, no matter our career?There are over 3.7 Million new videos uploaded to YouTube every day! Why? Because video is powerful. It becomes an extension of you, your organization, or your business. It's a simple way to express who you are and what you offer to a wide audience. As we close in on the mid-year mark, many companies are reviewing their budget requirements. While many Nonprofits will spend more time preparing for the yearend fundraising push to help them continue to serve their community, solopreneurs and small business continue to look for ways to stay relevant and in demand, differentiating themselves from the competition  #Businesses, #Nonprofits and #Entrepreneurs need to differentiate themselves and stay relevant. Videos can help you share your mission and allow you to reach the largest audience possible.Break through your limiting beliefs about being a compelling storyteller by joining Sarah Boxx (Strategic Consultant and Certified Enneagram Coach) and Ken Fay (Emmy Award-Winning Writer and Producer)!While this is a replay from when we were offering a one-day intensive Heart-Centered Storytelling event in 2023, the information is quite timely. We are contemplating offering this amazing, one-day program for the second year in a row.
