Knowing Your Audience

The Story is not about you it's about the audience, the listener. You need to create a bespoke message that reaches your target audience. 

The success of a good Story depends on your ability to connect your message to the people listening effectively. It's the difference between capturing the heart of the audience or leaving them empty with words in there head.
