When you think of powerful, epic brands, which ones are they? Have you ever noticed how powerful brands usually have powerful stories associated with them? This is not by accident. What people don’t know about stories is that they’re told through rigid, pre-set formulas that have been developed over the centuries. By sharing best-practices for the last 2,000 years, storytellers have figured out how to compel a human brain.

It’s true. Neuroscientists have proven that when you and I hear a story, the rational part of our brain turns off and we, in part, begin to live vicariously through the experience of the characters. That’s why, when we watch a thrilling film, our heart starts pounding. There’s a part of our subconscious that actually thinks we’re in the story! Just like the movies, we all have a story.

Have you ever wondered what the next part of your story looks like? Or maybe you are unsure what passion to pursue and you are looking for an experience to help motivate you towards what is next.
