My second-grade teacher made us memorize short poems and recite them every week. I hated it. Mostly because I was unduly shy, and the dread of standing in front of the judgemental eyes of 29 seven-year-olds is enough to frighten the hardest of men. At any rate, what I didn't realize then was that memorizing the classics ended up instilling in me a life-long love affair with words on paper.
Soon enough, I started writing poems of my own. Then songs and stories. By the time I was in college, I started to pay attention to the way people could be moved, persuaded, and challenged by words. I learned that choosing words wisely is when wisdom works its wonders. I was hooked.
Eventually, I found my way with words playing an important role in my work. Business storytelling can move the needle. Stories connect people. A well-crafted story communicates in ways that disarm and draw in readers. And that is meaningful to me.
So this is what I do. I move the needle with words. I have listed some samples of my content below.
