Speak Up Storytelling

Sep 10, 2018

A combination of the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah and an insidious illness that has plagued three of the four members of the Dicks household has caused us to offer you this rebroadcast of one of our earliest (and most popular) episodes of Speak Up Storytelling this week. 

Happy New Year to all our Jewish listeners!

We'll be back with a new episode for you next Monday!

On episode #2, Matthew and Elysha Dicks talk about finding excellent stories in your everyday life using Matthew's strategy "Homework for Life. 

Then we listen to Michelle Sebastianelli's story about her attempt to transform herself through yoga, followed by commentary and critique, including:

  1. The value of authenticity
  2. The importance of language 
  3. Strategies to keep your audience "in the moment"
  4. Constructing humor

Elysha and Matt also answer listener questions and offer recommendations.
