Last night I read a really interesting post by author Donald Miller called “How to Tell Your Story in 30 Seconds.” It’s about providing a CliffsNotes answer when someone says “tell me about yourself” or “what do you do.” It’s about doing it in such a way that you form a story, rather than a list of facts. I believe it also helps you add “why” to your “what.” More on that theory here.
So, without further ado, here’s my 30 Seconds to May:
My name is May Bohon. In 2010 God blessed my life by putting a mirror up to how horribly I handled the money He entrusted to me. Since then, I’ve fought my way out of debt, discovered joy in giving, lead personal finance classes and started taking steps towards working for Dave Ramsey so I can turn my passion into a career!
That was fun. :)
Your turn: What’s your 30-second story? What will it be 5 years from now?Final thought: If you don’t conclude your story with an “!”, then is it really the story you want to tell?
