Storytelling in business is a skill that's rarely taught—and often forgotten. But it gives those who get it right the power to inspire and engage people more than any pie chart or spreadsheet ever will. Stories foster a deeply human connection, and Power Stories: The 8 Stories You Must Tell to Build an Epic Business gives readers the skills they need to master this lost art to make sales and seal deals.

    Comments about Power Stories:

    Excellent book and a must-read for anyone really, but especially entrepreneurs and small-business owners. Valerie's style is fun, witty and easy to read. But more importantly, by following Valerie's advice (and templates in each chapter) this is a remarkably powerful guide that you can use immediately to communicate important messages to your clients, potential clients, investors and the media. An absolute must for your library and a tool that I will refer to again and again. Great work Valerie.
