So, Here's My Story... is the only business podcast that promises wildly useful lessons from the absurd, the poignant and the seemingly irrelevant. Business is messy and unpredictable. Business has depth and nuance. Business is more than spreadsheets. Business is stories.... and we want to hear yours.

Like all good lessons about asking for what you need in business, this lesson starts in a massage parlor. 

Why is that important for business? 

You need to be aware of your needs (in business and in life) and communicate them effectively. Sometimes, when you are staring at a blank page, you just need to figure out what the first sentence should be and start from there. 

There is nothing about work and leading that doesn’t involve identifying what is needed and asking for what is needed. 

In the book, Adult Children of Emotionally Immature Parents, we learn there are internalizers and externalizers. A lot of conflict in teams comes down to friction between internalizers (non-direct communicators) and externalizers (more direct). 

A lot of conflict in teams comes down to the friction between internalizers and externalizers (or direct and indirect people) and how they handle things. 

What story do you want to tell?

So, that's our story... now, we want to hear yours!
