If you want someone to get behind your idea (startup, cause, project), to follow you into the great unknown, to believe in you as a collaborator, to relive an experience with you, or to simply enjoy hanging out with you, know this: The future belongs to the storytellers. And the future belongs to those who share. Share what your ideas are, share what you’re doing, share what you’re all about. Do not huddle alone in the corner. Do not be afraid to put yourself out there in an interesting way. Tell your story, share your story, and then keep living your story.
