Ep. 158 – Donald Miller’s “How to Tell a Story” eBook – Part 5

SIBP-Blog-NEW-4Crafting a powerful story for your company or brand can do more than attract customers. It can shape how you see your business, guide how your investors and partners view their roles, and even sway potential employees to join your cause.
