From Inspiration to Legacy

  • Episode #6

Story Coach Lisa Bloom is the go-to expert on business storytelling. For decades she’s helped entrepreneurs master this important but overlooked skill. In Once Upon a Business, she’s turning her attention from the craft of storytelling to the stories themselves — the densely evocative folk and fairy tales that we’re all exposed to.

In each episode of Once Upon a Business, Lisa reads a fairy or folk tale and then extracts rich business lessons that are applicable for entrepreneurs of all stripes. As she puts it, a tiny tale of nine sentences can encompass worlds.

So, come now. Gather around the fire. Lisa’s about to begin….

“I think that process of iteration and getting out there and getting feedback is actually quite important. But not too soon, perhaps, and not at a time where maybe you’re too fragile.” ”

“It takes time for an idea to really ripen, for it to mature to the point where it has legs.”
