An evening with Michaela Murphy

Tonight I had the privilege of basking in the presence of “a good woman to know,” storyteller Michaela Murphy. These are the points that stood out to me:

  • Sometimes you have to wait 31 years for a story to resolve.
  • Stories are interactive. The more you avail yourself to your audience and what they are telling you, the better the story will be.
  • If you don’t know where to start, try this one of these: Start with yourself. What scares you? What’s something you don’t understand about yourself?
  • Relax. Enjoy. Don’t worry. Worry is like a chew toy in your mind that you use to distract yourself.

How can you use Michaela’s wisdom to better present your story?
