October Connector: The Power of Sharing “Your” Story
The Power of Stories:
Every successful company has a story of how they became successful. Company’s stories help people understand where they come from and how they overcame the odds stacked against them. The stories CEO’s of successful companies share can inspire the next generation of successful companies and build upon the foundation their predecessor laid out.
Co-Founder and former CEO of Microsoft Bill Gates shared,
“As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.”
When successful CEOs share their stories, they have an opportunity to educate other companies on how to be successful. When young businesses owners learn how CEOs became successful they can study what key business practices to follow, what mistakes to avoid, how to overcome obstacles, and how they can stand out amongst their rivals. This way, business owners can see how they become successful and do their part in making an impact on the world.
Theoretical physicist Albert Einstein taught,
“There comes a point in your life when you need to stop reading other people’s books and write your own.”
