The Power Of Telling Your Story For Women Entrepreneurs

Story telling is a basic part of being an entrepreneur. Every one of us has a unique story to tell, as an entrepreneur your story connects you to your audience and potential clients.

The power of telling your story is an essential tool for every women entrepreneur.

 

Your own unique stories make you different than any one else. This difference is essential for you to share with others for them to know who you are, what you do and why you do it.

Every successful women entrepreneur and speaker shares his or her story with the world.

Storytelling is a powerful tool that bridges the gap between our thoughts and our emotions. A powerful story will touch other people at their core. A good story will pull the listener in and create some type of reaction. Your story is what people will remember and repeat to others over and over again while facts and figures are soon forgotten. Everyone loves a good story.

So why care if your story creates a reaction in someone else? To move people whether it’s for a cause you are deeply passionate about, a product you are passionate about or a service you are passionate about, your story shares your passion and your message more powerfully than anything else.

Most successful speakers, entrepreneurs and writers are good storytellers.

A powerful story will command the audience and keep the audience hanging on every word, wanting to hear more.

So why are we so passionate about telling our story? When we first started to dream about our new business, helping women have the lifestyle they desire through entrepreneurship, we were not exactly sure how our story fit in.

Our story is about the loss of our daughter and sister.

Her name was Serena and at 15 months old she passed away in a drowning accident. She was a beautiful girl with blond wispy curly hair, big blue eyes and the ability to find something to get into in a split second.

One summer evening, while I was busy preparing dinner she noticed the door had not latched shut. She had slipped out the front door, and gone over to a small Koi pond we had in the yard. She leaned over to watch the fish fell in, and drowned.

Her loss changed our paths forever. We became extremely aware of the importance and value of family time and spending time with the important people in our lives.

To have just one moment of time with her would be priceless.

The importance of living your life to it’s fullest, a life without limits, to live every moment to it’s fullest this became our story.

To help women live their life as they choose, without limits this became our purpose and mission.

Storytelling is the most powerful tool we have in conveying our message, stimulating emotions and creating actions. Using the power of storytelling is an important tool in every entrepreneurs skills list.

To Your Life,

Elena & Jean

  3. Your story was strong and simple. Love and live life to the fullest. What a wonderful message! Thank you. At the same time, I felt very supported in telling and sharing my own story whatever it may be. That feels wonderful to know my story would be heard.

  4. As a mother to a 13 month old, I can only imagine how devastating it was for you when you lost your child. Wow. It really makes me appreciate every moment with my daughter. It’s great that you can now use that experience to share a deeper message with the world. Thanks you!

  5. very moving and inspiring post Jeanmarie…it also demonstrates that we don’t know what someone has going on in their life – their story – from the surface

    This is a wonderful post . I am sorry to hear about the loss of your daughter. As a mother of two beautiful children I couldn’t imagine losing either one of them. I agree with you, story telling is an extremely powerful tool and good story tellers manage to captivate their audience, inspire and provoke thoughts as well as engage our emotions. Everyone has a story to tell and it’s great that you have harnessed this concept to help women live a fuller more purposeful life.

    • Jeanmarie Bills says:

      Thanks Michelle. We each have unique experiences to share and through our sharing we help other people achieve their purpose.

  7. A very moving story indeed and thank you for sharing with us. I believe that pain can be our greatest teacher as I found when my life took a completely different direction to where I thought I was going. I spent many years in the corporate environment but at what cost? I was not living my true life. Several years ago I lost my twins and a year later I miscarried 2 more babies and as a result, my patner of 19 years walked away without a word or trace of him. I could have wallowed in my own misery and stayed stuck in the past however I realised that the Universe had a different path for me to tread. I embarked on a journey of spiritual self-discovery and I have now set up my business to help others find themselves.

      Thank-You for sharing your story Jenifer. I agree pain is our biggest teacher. Our life lessons are there for a purpose and it is in these lessons that we grow and then can share and help others to live their life without limits.
