This week we explore what it takes to take on transition like a boss. We also have some tips to help you master the art of storytelling!
Entrepreneurship … Like a Boss
Let’s face it, big changes in your work life can be really tough. Whether it be transitioning to a different company, a different position or even a new location, the sense of “unknown” can feel a little uneasy. This phase of life is an opportunity to learn and grow, but it’s hard to always have that mindset. Here are a few things to keep in mind when going through a change:
- Positive thinking: Embark on this new phase of life knowing that the best is yet to come.
- Don’t take anything personally: Focus on personal growth and achieving your goals, don’t worry about anything else.
- Be adaptable: Your transition may take time and not be seamless. Adaptability ensures you will find happiness in any circumstance.
- Reach Out: Seize all of the opportunities that you want and focus on your goals!
Tips & Tools to Empower Your Life
The overarching goal of PR is to tell a story. Conveying a passionate, clear and engaging story for some clients can be difficult. You can pitch every angle of a feature, script the most compelling social media, or write the best blog, and still not properly convey the message that is at the heart of your client’s purpose and passion. Here are some tips to tell your stories in a new and compelling way!
- Learn from comedians – Most comedians start their jokes with a compelling story. Comedians have perfected the art of making a story engaging enough to keep your attention long enough to deliver the punch line. Next time you are listening to your favorite comedian, pay attention to the pattern in which they tell their story and try to replicate this in your own pitching.
- Refer to Pixar’s 22 Rules of Storytelling – Start with the basics – how are your favorite stories told? Think about your favorite characters and the themes of your favorite movies. Why do you love them so much? How can you create content that makes people feel the same way you feel about your favorite movie or story?
- Create an ending that works – There’s nothing an audience likes more than a satisfying ending. Make sure you leave your readers happy and intrigued!
