What do you do for news? How do you handle a difficult co-worker? Can you change a caption?

Why do you love to tell stories?

1 Answers

A story, can transcend time, space, and circumstance. It can entertain, educate, heal, and create an escape from reality. There is nothing better than allowing someone to go on a grand adventure with you no matter how small. I love to be moved and to help others know that feeling. Stories are what shape society. There is no greater gift than sharing a story. Less

(I loved this question!!!) What is something you currently do at work that you wish you never have to do again? (I also loved this question!)

Can you tell me about a professional failure—what you've done, the outcome, and what you learned?

1 Answers
