“The Art of Storytelling in Entrepreneurship”

Description

“PEOPLE DON’T BUY WHAT YOU DO — THEY BUY WHY YOU DO IT” – SIMON SINEK

Creating and telling your life story is an ongoing process, it is not a one-time marketing event. This skill requires you to revisit and rethink the image you broadcast into the world. This image that you think you portray in addition to what others say about you makes up your brand. So wherever you are in this process of developing your own story, this workshop will unveil what your action items are to take you where you need to go next.

The world is waiting to hear your story. Are you ready to share it? – Daniel Legmann


Bindu´s workshop focuses on:

1) The art of the resume.

2) Increase awareness of students (bridging the connection between the self and the image of the person).

3) How to focus and avoid distractions in pursuit of the career of your dreams.

Entrepreneurship Workshop

Prior “home-work” 🙂 to participants of the workshop:

Homework 1

What is your story?

People buy why you do it. And in the long run, this why needs to be consistent to proof your “why.” So start now while you are building your resume. Everything you say or write gets recorded on search engines. Make sure that the message is the same across all channels. Usually, when your thoughts, words, and deeds are in unison, you have nothing to worry. Holistic SEO takes place, and your message gets delivered automatically. What happens when you are still trying to figure it out or in the process of building that “real” you?

You want to make sure that each piece of art you make, your resume, your elevator pitch, your networking message, has the same essence.

Bring to this workshop at least two parts of your resume that sound alike or that follow a thread. It will create the trend you will continue using at the event. You want to come out of this one and a half hour session with an action plan to write a compelling story. Begin with this homework. More to come 🙂

Homework 2

We all have missing parts on our resume. However, address what you want to make sure is understood either directly or indirectly. There would be no harm if you did something out of your industry of scope. What is important is that you were not lazing around doing anything. And if you did, it’s alright as well. Maybe you had an “aha” moment that made you the person you are today. Either way do not be afraid to share or say who you are. Because that is the real you and anything other than that is a lie. And that gets across before your spoken word.

So find those missing stories and add them to the thread, if not in a written format at least in the back of your mind. The moment you know it exists, and you accept that part of you as being part of who you are, you are on your way to the true story of yourself.

Entrepreneurship Workshop

Homework 3

Be simple and humble. Do not try to act, say or do what you don’t believe. The why will get across fast if you are consistent with your message. Make sure that message is clear within yourself first. Then try to convey it through other channels, be this social media or simple conversations with your peers. Make sure your message is the same. It is okay to change this message as along it follows a transition and a why. Change is okay as long as you understand why.

So, re-check your story and make sure it is consistent.

Entrepreneurship Workshop

Homework 4

Draw a timeline and put the different parts of your resume in it. Write your story down. Take out from it the highlights of what pertains to the industry in which you would like to develop your skills. If you are still unsure, merely list the areas of your work experience that are most dear to you. Through this exercise, you might experience moments of illumination where each will mark a piece of the puzzle you are trying to decipher.

So go ahead and draw the timeline.

Entrepreneurship Workshop

Homework 5

Once those points are clear, make a story of you without considering the constraints of your family, income or society. Make sure what you are passionate about direct links to the story you are building for yourself. It could become a reality, for those who already begun a career in this direction. Or it could be a dream if you still don’t know how to get there but you are longing.

If you are within the group of people that either doesn’t have a career based on your passion and you don’t know how to figure it out, close your eyes and ask yourself. Keep doing this exercise until you reach an answer. You will be surprised at the number of signs coming your way 🙂

Therefore, start the practice of introspection into the passion of your life. You never know, it might later turn into your career 🙂

Entrepreneurship Workshop

Homework 6

Bring to class the notes taken, your resume and anything else you feel will be appropriate to get answers. I am available for questions after the workshop. If you have not been able to do this exercises, bring a piece of paper and pen anyway. Writing with your hand gives your outlook a whole different experience 🙂

Looking forward to seeing you all this 23rd April 2018 at 5:30 pm 🙂

Free ticket and free food  🙂

Cheers 🙂

More about the Innovation Lab at Boston University:
Turning ideas into action to create impact

“The power of Innovate@BU lies in no one person or program, but in the diverse and vibrant network of skills, concentrations, and passions spread out across the University. Innovate@BU empowers students and alumni to learn and experience innovative thinking through three primary efforts: the BUild Lab IDG Capital Student Innovation Center, innovation curriculum, and expanding innovation research.

Through Innovate@BU, the Build Lab IDG Capital Student Innovation Center is the starting point to transform ideas into impact, including social or business ventures. Students and alumni can attend hands-on workshops, make connections with mentors, find funding sources, and collaborate with others on a project that plays to their passions.” – BU Innovate


The “why.”

Bindu Power Coach has been acting from the inside out since the beginnings of its inception.  She focused on the “why” – a purpose higher than herself. Dadlani interviewed companies, professionals, and entrepreneurs on how their leadership inspired them to action and how that action created impact. Ted talk from Simon Sinek confirmed the cleverness of her chosen path when she watched his video in 2009. Other self-made entrepreneurs like Steve Jobs, with his commencement speech at Stanford University, inspired Bindu to continue with her “why.” She even wrote a post in Spanish in 2012 addressing this issue.

The entire concept behind the transformation of her idea into action is creating an impact in peoples hearts and soul. She has been working on this through self-journeys, worldwide traveling, interviews with successful entrepreneurs, scientific research, and investigation. She did not allow others to block her way to her real story. 

As you expand your mind, your horizons expand to meet the people who will value your idea.
