Words can have power. Words can wound and they can also heal. Making yourself vulnerable by telling your story can expose your audience's vulnerability as well, thus creating a deep connection between storyteller and listener.
If you’ve experienced a personal struggle that changed the course of your professional life, I'd like to share your story. I'm creating a new weekly feature in my blog called Tapestry: a series of personal stories of struggle and growth that, when woven together, create a picture of the human condition. You can contribute to the series as a guest blogger, or I can write the post on your behalf. It's up to you.
