Live Storytelling Training For Entrepreneurs
People buy what they believe in. Facts alone don't change beliefs, but woven into stories well told, they can change the course of history. Every entrepreneur starts with a story. Those that learn how to tell it, how to infect clients and investors with the faith they have in their company, are the ones who become successful. You already know your story - I teach you to tell it in a way that convinces people to put their resources behind your endeavor. I have learned to tell stories in front of the most sophisticated audiences in the world as a classically trained actor and refined this skill in front of the toughest audiences in the world: drunk audiences at comedy clubs. The entrepreneurs I work with tell their story, back it up with facts, and raise money.

"I’m looking at him and saying he looks very together. He looks very confident. I like that. But I didn’t feel him. You know? I wasn’t feeling his excitement. I did not feel his energy and I’m thinking that, how is he going to motivate a team of people if he can’t motivate us to invest in this company. But that’s actually, that’s why I look at people’s energy. My grandfather used to say that if you could sell a fuller brush, you could sell anything. Because in the end, salespeople are really not selling the product, they’re selling themselves first. You have to like them. You have to believe them. You have to trust them. You have to feel their excitement. And I didn’t feel any of this. I did trust him. I didn’t have any reason not to, but I didn’t feel that he was excited. And how am I going to get excited if he’s not excited." -Jillian Manus, Structure Capital
