The first thing that draws you to Jaime is the big smile surrounded by the biker beard.
Knowing where he’s now (a published author and the owner of a successful 7-figure business), you’d never imagine what he’s been through.
Some years ago, Jaime served in the US Army as a paratrooper. But being away from his family for long periods of time was affecting him deeply. So he decided to quit the army and go back home.
But the day he arrived, his wife told him she wanted a divorce. She was seeing someone else. Not only that, but he could not go back to their home.
He ended up homeless, without a job and with no family.
Thanks to some friends, he was able to get a job at a restaurant. Later he got a corporate job, and a few years later he started a business and met his new wife.
It’s a story about facing uncertainty and making it through tribulations. It’s a story of transformation.
“Being able to share your experience creatively through storytelling differentiates you from everybody else,” Jaime told me.
Why do I tell you this?
Because to write like a thought leader you must be able to write compelling stories of transformation (your own and others) that illustrate the results of putting your ideas and frameworks into practice.
Storytelling is a superpower you must acquire a.s.a.p.
The good news is that I’m here to help.
So, let’s pretend for a second that we are in a creative writing class…
Have you seen the Captain America movie?
