Your Guide & Podcast Host
Hi! I’m Lori and I’m really glad you’re here.
We are born storytellers, it is ingrained in our DNA. It’s how we communicate our past, share, teach, and define our world to ourselves and others.
The stories we tell ourselves create our realities – they can motivate us, scare us, help us find joy or sabotage us.
I’m here to help you LOVE YOUR STORY – whatever it is. What we live and what we live through make us the people we are, in all our messy beauty.
Katie Houston is a thirty-something high school choir teacher who woke up early in the morning a couple days before her 35th birthday and spontaneously set a crazy goal: She was going on 35 dates in 3 months using social media to help connect her with new people. She launched her experiment by asking friends and family on Facebook and Instagram to set her up and she stayed active on dating apps. She also appeared on a Facebook live show called, “Friday Night Love” and discussed her experiment. Tune in as we follow her LOVE challenge and let’s see if she falls in love…
My interview today is with David Hutchens, the author of Circle of the 9 Muses: A Storytelling Field Guide for Innovators and Meaning Makers, and is creator of the Learning Fables — a book series that uses narrative and metaphor to illustrate principles of organizational learning. With titles that include “Outlearning the Wolves” and “Shadows of the Neanderthal,” the popular business fables have sold more than a quarter-million copies in over a dozen languages.section of narrative, leadership, and complex systems change for more than 20 years. Today we talk about creating connection with story – in business, in our personal lives, and even in a college admittance interview. Tune in today to hear a down-to-earth conversation about how businesses and people are using story to remove the barriers that stand between them and to create new levels of understanding that result in sales, connection, and even scholarship.
You don’t get out of bed in the morning without hope. We have hope in many things. Hope in God, hope in family, hope our efforts will bear fruit, hope we’ll find that perfect someone, hope we’ll overcome a sickness, hope that life holds beauty, hope the toilet won’t back up, hope our kids will live well, hope we get the job, hope we get pregnant, hope we don’t get pregnant, hope we’ll lose 10 lbs.…hope is the reason we keep on keepin on. But what happens when you hit those patches, the dissolving of a relationship, the terminal diagnosis, the loss of a job, severe bullying, despair and overwhelming self-criticism for another failure, and hope gets up and walks out of the room? Today’s episode is all about HOPE – the good stuff. Tune in to find a little – or a lot.
