Imagine if you could design and prototype your dream life. By applying tools from entrepreneurship and change-making you can explore your career choices and expand your awareness of what is possible, in a user-centric process where you are the user. Learning how to apply storytelling to communicate and create internal and external dialogues is crucial as an entrepreneur. Storytelling can be used to fuel yourself to move forward, to become more purpose-driven and to inspire others. Your entrepreneurial story isn’t a timeline, it’s a culmination of key moments, lessons learned, pivots, motivations, frustrations, and successes. It is the story of your team and of your desired future.
