Why storytelling will become the biggest business skill

Yes, it’s a 2-year-old piece, but it’s still relevant. “The reason Kickstarter works, and how thousands of creators have rallied the support of millions on its platform, is because it allows people to get their stories in front of others. And it doesn’t just allow it; Kickstarter requires it.” (Via HubSpot, republished from Contently.com)

My daughter works for a dance nonprofit in Washington, D.C., that’s using storytelling to attract donors to support a new outdoor art space it’s developing.

Since 1986, Dance Place has invested in transforming Brookland / Edgewood into an Arts District. Today, we embark on the final chapter of a journey that created the Brookland Artspace Lofts in 2011 and fueled Dance Place’s dramatic renovation in 2014. Your contribution will complete a vision three decades in the making, of a true arts campus in Brookland / Edgewood.
