You have something to give to this world.
You want to write a book or a song, make a film or start a podcast, create outstanding products. But this desire inside will likely die soon. Because without an audience, without connection, your creativity will die like a plant without water.
And it's never been harder than today.
How to connect in an age of information overload?
Welcome to our new reality, where everybody has been given a megaphone—the internet.
4,45 Billion People spend around 6.5 hours online. Daily. Today's difficulty lies not in reaching as many people as possible, but in attention.
Attention is not scalable.
We've learned to give it away very carefully, to select meticulously who is worthy of how much.
You are fighting the billions online who shout into their megaphones. And with the development of artificial intelligence, more and more content will populate the internet in the coming years.
The noise is deafening. It will get louder. There will be more content. More products. More voices. How can you stand out?
You have two possibilities.
#1 Yell as loud as you can. Until you lose your breath. Until your vocal cords give in. Yell and hope for the breakthrough, and it might come. You might go viral. Sadly, this success won't last.
#2 Crawl away into you piled up mess of excuses and insecurities and give in to the belief that nobody wants to hear from you.
But there's also a third possibility.
What are your most vivid memories?
I remember this little book my mom used to read me before bedtime. It was freakishly scary, now that I think about it. But I loved it. I remember the first movie that captured my heart, Disney’s Pocahontas—I watched it over and over again (back then, we had only three video tapes and two TV channels). We remember good stories, because our brain is hardwired for them.
We just can't ignore them. Possibility #3: Use the power of storytelling.
Wired for story
“Story is what makes us human, not just metaphorically but literally. Recent breakthroughs in neuroscience reveal that our brain is hardwired to respond to story; the pleasure we derive from a tale well told is nature’s way of seducing us into paying attention to it.”
I'm here to teach you a power that is much stronger than what they teach at Hogwarts. It’s difficult to master. But it's the only way to be heard in a word that gets louder every second. It's the only way to make a real impact.
I know you have an amazing story to tell, whether you are a writer, video content creator, entrepreneur, designer, musician. You have something inside of you that bugs you every single damn day and won’t leave you alone. You want to make an impact. Build a tribe. Find an audience and make a change. Because this is what a true storyteller does. He changes things to become better.
You’re a storyteller. You just need to master that power.

Here's what's inside:
The first story that changed my life forever was Mel Gibson’s Braveheart. I was only nine years old when I saw it, but until this day I remember William Wallace saying: "Every man dies, not every man really lives."
You have nothing to lose. Live by this principle.
Embark on the storyteller's journey & tell your damn story.
