What is your story?


Your story is probably one of the most important things you can ever discover about yourself. It describes where you came from. Why you do what you do. It reveals your journey. It defines your goals and your story explains why it matters.
Your story keeps you focused, and it give your audience a chance to get to know you. It helps them relate to you. It gives them reason to tell others about you.
It's your Bio. It's your elevator speech. It's your introduction. It's you in a nutshell.
It isn't just what you do. It's why you do it and why it gives value to others.
You are the embodiment of that story. That way, every project makes sense to you and to your fans.
If you ever walked around an Art Gallery, you may have noticed that people can spend almost as much time reading the small painting descriptions on the wall, as they do looking at the art. Because people want to know who painted it, when and what the story behind the art is.
You have a story. It's more interesting than you think, and it grows over time, as you do.
