    [Ep#408] Debunking Buzzwords & Finding True Fulfillment

    What’s the real POWER of an origin story?
    Storytelling in business isn't just about telling what happened but creating a story that connects with people on an emotional level. As entrepreneurs, we can use storytelling to create powerful stories that do more than just share what the business does—they let people see and feel the business's culture and values. This is especially important today when there are so many businesses out there and standing out is more difficult.
    Today, we have a compelling conversation lined up with life coach Carrie West, who utilizes her extensive background in the entertainment industry to enhance personal and business storytelling. Carrie, who is also the author of the forthcoming "Memoir of an Ordinary Person and the Stories That Changed Her Life," shares her expert insights on the transformative power of origin stories for both personal development and business success. She shares how these narratives emotionally motivate us, and their crucial role in connecting with investors, attracting customers, and influencing corporate culture.
    This episode reminds us that in business, personal stories that connect with people on an emotional level are crucial for building lasting relationships and inspiring others.
    Here are three key takeaways to enhance your storytelling in business:


    Rebuild & Engage: Transform and rebuild your business’s origin story to engage your audience effectively. Find compelling elements in your story that intrigue and connect on a personal level.


    Authentic Delivery: Focus on honest and authentic communication when sharing your story. Avoid overly polished narratives that may seem rehearsed. Authenticity creates trust and builds a deeper connection with your audience.


    Embrace Imperfections: Don't shy away from admitting communication flaws; instead, partner with someone who complements your storytelling style. Realness in your approach can significantly attract and retain interest from investors and customers alike.

Positioning and packaging your services

Absolutely brilliant!!! Annemarie, all your podcasts are gold, but this one was just amazing. You and Desiree provided great detail on how coaches can package services to be more inline with client needs, instead of the usual 'pay per hour' structure.
I feel so lucky to have found these at the start of my own business journey so I can avoid many of the common mistakes of those venturing into coaching practices.
Thanks again,
Kim Shaw
