The Inside Story Podcast with April Adams Pertuis

May 5, 2021

I’m fresh off 2 events that have left me feeling energized and truly inspired! And the relevant insights I took away were not just for the way I do my work as a Storytelling coach, but also for how I live my personal life.

On both occasions, one valuable truth struck me: we have to make the conscious effort of putting ourselves in the room and allowing ourselves to be transformed when we do that.

But what do I mean by “putting yourself in the room”?

Here’s what I’m sharing with you today:

  • My experience in Montana, and what it felt like to attend my first in-person event in over a year
  • The virtual Storytelling Symposium I led that was attended by women who chose to put themselves in the room
  • What it means to give yourself the chance to be in the room fully and truly present, ready to soak up the lessons other people in the room impart
  • Putting yourself in the room not just to receive wisdom from others but also giving something back by sharing your own stories
  • Ultimately, it’s the thought of putting yourself first and growing in the process, that can lead to improving everything around you

Different as the Montana and Symposium events were in the manner by which they were conducted, both taught me the same thing: saying YES to yourself by getting inside that significant room is important. It may just be the thing you need to transform your life in the most amazing way.
