Your Stories Don’t Define You, How You Tell Them Will
About This Show
Your stories don’t define you, but how you tell them will.
If relationships are the key to happiness, communication is the doorway, and communication is most engaging when we use stories as our foundation.

David Amerland is an international speaker, author and business journalist. He's also a gypsy careerist (like me), because his interests span the spectrum of science and humanity. His recently published book, The Sniper Mind, takes mindfulness and focus techniques that are critical to success in that arena, and applies those techniques to professional and personal success.
