Is there a cute, squishy, maddening 3 year old in your life? …
Spending time with 3 year olds, you’ll quickly learn that their life is pretty much all about them. They want to choose their own clothes (or wear none at all). They want to drink only out of the space-themed cup — that you can’t find. And they definitely want to ride a unicorn. Their day is spent being the hero in their own story.
Your job is to help all of their dreams come true — yes, even the 🦄.
Your customers really aren’t any different. They are working hard everyday to create their best life. They, too, want to be the hero of their own story. It’s human nature.

You might know this hero/guide idea as the StoryBrand framework. It’s a proven process of clearly communicating to an audience. You show that you understand their problems and offer compelling solutions.
