What did they say about the workshop?
Don't Sell, Just Tell a Story
What if every time you gave a presentation, made a sales pitch to a prospective client, or tried to inspire a team member, you had the power to persuade them to take action?

What if you were able not only to describe the benefits of your product or process, but also give your potential clients or buyers an immediate experience of the success or the happiness you’re promising?
You can. By harnessing the power of great storytelling.
Using his 6-Step Success Story Process™, Hollywood story expert Michael Hauge will join World Champion Speaker and business strategist Darren LaCroix as they show you a proven way to grow your business and transform your audiences.

"No one is better than Michael Hauge at finding what is most authentic in every moment of a story."

- Will Smith, Actor I Am Legend, Men in Black, The Pursuit of Happyness
What's the Problem?
If you aren't closing the sale or inspiring action, you're probably not using powerful stories. Do you know what your business story is or even where to find it? Without using stories, you're just throwing facts and figures at potential clients; and they won't stick.
But It Gets Worse...
Maybe you already know your story, but when you start to tell it, you notice people nodding off, disengaged, or looking for an escape route. If your story is boring, that's even worse than no story at all. Maybe you've gotten help with one story, but you don't know how to recreate the process to make all of your stories more compelling and influential for your target audience. Most people think they are good storytellers but have never been trained to know the essential elements from master storytellers. Great stories build trust and make people want to do business with you. Are you missing out?

In the Better Stories, Better Business LIVE Master Workshop, you will learn how to apply the principles of great storytelling to your business presentations, web pages, and videos. Everyone loves a good story. Savvy business owners use great stories to build their businesses. You will walk away with the power and understanding to change the emotional state of audiences, clients, and followers and to move them to take action.

You'll learn how to present your marketing story in such a way that your potential buyer, client, or subscriber identifies with the hero of that story and experiences the emotion of the story through that character. You’ll build trust so they will want to do business with you.

"It wasn’t until I met Michael Hauge that I really started to understand story structure.

When he spoke at one of our events and I first heard his six-step approach to story, I thought it was amazing. We incorporated his principles into our ClickFunnels software, which now has more than 70,000 active customers and creates millions of dollars a month in sales."
 - Russell Brunson, creator of ClickFunnels and author of Expert Secrets

It's Simple and Powerful When You

When you tell a story about someone whose life was improved or trans-formed by your product, process, or principles, your potential buyers will feel the way your hero felt. Those feelings will convince them to pay for your service or your product.
