This Is Why Stories Move Us With Bob Wheatley – 064

Don’t You Love a Good Story?

You’ve heard me encourage you to “go all in on your story.” In this episode, I talk to author Bob Wheatley about how all stories are pointing back to one grand narrative, and why that is a good thing. We also discuss how our individual stories relate to the best one ever told.
