Feb 07, 2021 Season 2 Episode 109
Founders Live

Nick Hughes is joined by Melissa Reaves of Story Fruition, founder and Executive Storytelling Coach from Seattle, WA. "Storytelling is an essential business skill. Humans are storytelling creatures. Stories drive, define, and inspire us. The best salespeople, executives, and leaders tell impactful, compelling stories. Do you?"  Nick and Melissa dive into an incredibly entertaining but also touching conversation that covers many topics, including pitch coaching in Seattle, her tips for a proper 99-second pitch, as well as her projects Story Fruition and Melanin Stories Matter. We start by hearing a bit more about Melissa's background, how she discovered her acting and improv interests, and then her path into the business world. It was here she noticed successful executives and businesses all were able to use words, messages and emotions to move people to take action. That is what she now helps others do! The conversation then shifts to her new project Melanin Stories Matter, which is elevating BIPOC voices & magnifying their stories. This  is an anti-racist movement that time has come, so let's listen up.  We all have melanin, so let it unite us! This is a very inspiring, emotional and educational episode with a great coach and even better person. We hope it helps you today!
