We’re always talking about recording stories… let’s shake things up and talk about telling stories!
After working in the journalism industry and with big names like HGTV, April Pertuis has over 25 years experience in all aspects of STORIES.
Today, she helps women use their story to get clear on their purpose, build their audience and grow their brand through her brand… I love the name so much… LIGHTbeamers. She believes when you share a story, you shine a light.
In this ep, April talks to us about:

STORY PROMPT: Share a piece of your mess
You can take this figuratively or literally — share something (talk about it, illustrate it, show it) that is a mess in your life.
STORYTELLING TIP: Talking about areas of your life/home/business that are a bit messy illustrates to your audience you are human. You are just like them. You have your own mess you deal with– whether it’s something physical/tangible or something more mental/ethereal–
Also, try to think how this “mess” relates back to your message. Can you connect the dots in any way? Your stories are not about you — they are pathway to build connection between you and the people you want to serve.
GO LIVE: Get your message on Video, pronto! Getting more comfortable here is what #wednesdaylive is really all about. It’s a place to practice and embrace video because this is THE TOOL you all need to be using (yes, everyone!) to get your stories heard! ????????????
