I think this is a great topic to touch on.  It’s so crucial to be able to explain to people what your mission is and what direction you are going.

Thanks for this webinar.
If at the end you can improve your story telling techniques and be able to create nice stories to share in your blog or website, then your visitors will come back looking for a new story. Then is time to encourage readers to subscribe to your blog and day by day have a blog that makes money while is followed by more and more readers.

Thank you for your nice post. I totally agree with you that compelling stories are important. I have used that in my profession as teacher to help my student to remember the important parts.

Thanks for the webinar also.
