Growing your business without understanding the hero’s journey puts it on “impossible mode.”
The hero’s journey dates back to at least 2,000 years before Jesus. Which means humans are hardwired to learn from stories following the hero’s journey.
It also means that if you tell better stories to your customers and yourself, your business grows to heights you can’t even imagine.
In this episode, host of The Business of Story Podcast, Park Howell joins me to share how to tell stories that close clients, motivate your team, and grow your bank account.
Show highlights include:
- Why the ancient hero’s journey is the single greatest way to make more sales in your business today (1:32)
- How lighting thousands of dollars on fire for personal development groups is the most profitable way to spend your cash (10:48)
