“Okay, I’m going to do it. But how do I start?” You peer out between the curtains at the stage lights.
Jilliane walks you through some exercises to ground you and steady your voice, and then reintroduces you to the crowd and covers for the vomit blunder by citing technical difficulties. You complete your speech without throwing up again, but that’s the best you can say for it.
When you get offstage, Jilliane is there waiting and gives you a big high five.
“Way to go, you got it done!”
“Ok, so let’s talk about your stories. I’ve created this group program called Story Power! It’s for women business leaders like you, because telling your stories helps you elevate your authority status, motivate your listeners to action, and speak with confidence and competence … and that’s just for a start. The program is designed to create energizing experiences where ideas will spark and you will feel powerful and connected … because that’s what stories do. Most of my clients have breakthroughs when they craft and share their stories because they discover how capable they are or because they connect with their audience in a transformative way or because they have an aha moment when crafting their own story.”
“I want to know even more about Story Power!” you cry.
“The ladies will love you!” Jilliane declares.
The two of you descend the steps from the stage, knowing that the best stories are yet to come.
