I found that a journey as an entrepreneur is never in a straight line…or a path to success.  Twists and turns…lots of litter or failed attempts as we continue to strive for success.

My guest today is no stranger to those struggles.  In fact, it’s those struggles that have led him to a successful business and as important, to a passion of helping others.

Today at the Café I’m excited to have Dave Daley, Monster Motivator to discuss the lessons learned on his journey as a serial entrepreneur and the road that led him to his passion and motivation for the work he does today.

Storytelling has been used to shape and redefine events in order to persuade and change possible outcomes in history. Even Julius Caesar famously said that the victor told the story. Storytelling evolved as a way to ensure that history was handed down from generation to generation, so historical events were retold over and over to educate and to entertain an audience.

Join me at the Cafe as I explore the value and strategies of storytelling, along with some practical advice on establishing your story’s premise
