Storytelling in business

Sometimes the most important things are the less obvious, and because I’ve been thinking a lot about the topic of storytelling, I’d love to leave you with one quote and one video. The quote is quite simple but powerful. It is by Gary Vaynerchuck (ever wondered why this guy got everyone to write his email right even though it’s not necessarily easy? Think about it), which I got from his latest book Crush It:>Storytelling is by far the most underrated skill in business.

And the second thing I’d love to leave you with is a video of Doug Richard of Library House - and a former “dragon” at BBC Two’s Dragons Den - on building a business. It’s a pretty short video (I’d love to see more from him) but it packs quite a punch. Don’t miss this:

Be inspired. Tell stories. Start a business.
