Storytelling Mojo: How to Get Paid for Being the Real You

, Just a dude obsessed with storytelling...


"Do people get what you do? Do they get who you are?

This fun interactive course will teach you how to use storytelling to position your work, attract more  opportunities, and get paid for being the real you. Storytelling is your ultimate currency. 

The secret is to talk about yourself without bragging, boasting, or being a bore. While still being memorable, compelling, and relatable. 

Problem is nobody taught you how to write your bio or tell your story. Until now. Storytelling is key to attracting the right people, projects and recognition to your career.

By the end of this class you will have learned:

  • Why changing your "about" page and bio will transform your business
  • How to talk powerfully about yourself without bragging, boasting, or being a bore
  • Super-hero origins: how to craft a powerful backstory (regardless of your career to date)
  • The chocolate secret and how to connect with a wider audience on social media
  • Simple storytelling shortcuts to increase your likeability (...even if you're a little shy)

Since I love the Skillshare tribe and mission, I'm offering this workshop at a 70% discount (regularly $150). As an extra bonus, your registration includes as complimentary signed copy of my book Believe Me: a Storytelling Manifesto for Change-Makers and Innovators ($17.95 value).

This workshop is highly-interactive, fun, and provocative. And it works. You can't learn this stuff anywhere else. You will leave with new insights and clear action-steps for revamping your personal brand story. If you don't agree, I'll gladly refund your registration.

This workshop is based on my popular online e-course and 7-step storytelling system, The New About Me (AKA how to write a kick-ass bio without being a jerk). With more than 350 graduates, this breakthrough approach has been featured in Wired, LifeHacker, and AOLJobs. 

For the past decade, I've taught storytelling to thousands of change-makers, innovators, and disruptors. I'm the President of Get Storied, a global education and support network devoted to transformational storytelling. We have 11,000 members around the world that care about better storytelling in business, social change, and personal development. 

In 2009, I self-published Believe Me: a Storytelling Manifesto for Change-makers and Innovators. I'm also the curator of the Reinvention Summit: Storytelling's Biggest Online Conference, where I've interviewed 50 of the leading storytelling experts in the world. I speak at dozens of venues each year including SXSW, BlogWorld, Etsy, NASA, and Zappos. I'm left-handed, color-blind, and eat more chocolate than the average human. My TV guilty pleasures are Celebrity Rehab and Millionaire Matchmaker.
