I have to confess I never liked the word “contacts.” I have always preferred to make friends but social networking warmed me up to the word: contacts. I probably don’t know you personally, but I appreciate you because you and I ARE connected. I wish I knew you better, knew some of your stories. And it could happen. In the radio interview link below, that’s exactly what happened between Debra Condren and myself.
Debra interviewed me about storytelling, how to find the story so you are the one who wins, when “Whoever The Best Story Wins.” During the interview you can hear how “give a story/get a story” works in several spontaneous exchanges. Best of all for me, this interview demonstrates how exchanging stories shifts two strangers, two “contacts,” to two good friends. I think you will find it a delightful and instructive audio download (50 minutes) to listen to during your commute time.
