Quotes From This Episode:

“Lawyers have been telling stories for hundreds, if not thousands of years. Telling a good emotional story is powerful stuff…but unless you can tell a story that motivates your audience, motivates my 12 jurors to take the intended action, it doesn’t matter.” @mitchjackson

If you’re a professional, show your human side, be strategically transparent, tell good emotional stories, create and share content that’s unique to your interests, your passions, your why. Click To Tweet

“If you’re a professional or CEO, think about having that mindset where you want to give, give and give some more…it opens you up to a lot of new opportunities that you wouldn’t normally be exposed to.”@mitchjackson
