    Story Spine: Simple Model for Business Storytelling

    in Marketing

    I love this model: It's called the 7-Step Story Spine created by Kenn Adams. I have written about it many times and have used it for years. I learned this model in improv theater - yes, the stage! The stage is where great storytelling happens that takes us on an emotional journey that we care about. It's just one approach to getting started, and, as you get more experienced and comfortable with the main pieces, you can adapt, extend, add on to this model.

    It's a great, simple way to think through narrative structure for any story. The 'once upon time' approach is a universal method that we all recognize and it models not only how great stories move through different elements; it works because that's how our human brains think. In stories!

    Are you in line with your spine? Chiropractors work with the spine, not just because it's often the source of neck and back pain, but because it houses and protects the central nervous system. Virtually every vital life-sustaining process, whether it's digesting our dinner or responding to potential infection, depends on the integrity of the nervous system between the brain and the body. Find out more about the imporance of your spine and what you can do to keep it well functioning.

    Grow a Spine, A Spine is Required to Get a Job

    in Politics

    Look at all the unemployment in America. Ask yourself why! Stock market just hit 16,000. American businesses are storing money all over the world. Foreign companies are doing business in America and transferring profits to their own countries. Americans are getting poorer every week that a paycheck does not come into enough American households. You are allowing this to happen.

    America is missing backbones. Unemployment is too high because Americans are missing a spine. Americans are not missing skills. Jobs most needed today are needed by the working poor. Any skills needed on such jobs can be developed in weeks on the job. Unemployment is not about citizens not being skilled for the workforce of today.

    Unemployment is high because you do not have the spines to go look managers in the face and ask for a job you know are qualified for and capable of doing. Do you really think managers or their staff are looking at all the online resumes and jobs request they receive and reject? That works for businesses. It's nothing more than a feel good step to replace your missing spine. Job loss is political. Job loss is orchrestrated by GOP and ALEC. Not hiring you and bringing in foreigners I'm sure has advantages for CEOs. What advantages? You guess. I know through research, foreigners are paid same salaries if not more than American holding comparable positions. Failure to hire is political. Low wages is political. Keeping job applicants away from businesses is political. Being spinless is you! Grow a spine and call companies where you sent resumes. Government progams can help!

    Pride, embarrassment, laziness, lack of confidence, or fear stands in the way of Americans having a spine. Waiting for business managers to care about hiring is spinless. Grow a spine! Suit up. Go get hired.

    Chef & Author Lorne Oliver Cooks Up Spine Chilling Terror In Madame Perry's Salon


    Lorne Oliver was born and raised in the rural area outside of Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada.  It was the perfect place for him to grow up because his favorite thing to do was go hiking through the woods as often as he could with his dog Bullet at his side and a notebook in his backpack.  He first made the conscious decision to be a writer when he was ten and the school librarian asked if anyone knew any Canadian author's.  He put his hand up and the librarian said to come back when he was published.  Years later that same librarian came to the book launch of the first published anthology he was in.  It was not until June of 2012 that he published his first solo novel, Red Island.

    When he's not writing or marketing his work he is usually watching something that has to do with the
    mystery/suspense/thriller genre's or having fun with his wife, two children, and four dogs.

    LaVoy Finicum Stand Up For Our Constitution Why Is Freedom So Important?

    in Politics

    LaVoy Finicum is a Northern Arizona Rancher who loves nothing more in life than God, family, and freedom.


    As he has watched the ever increasing encroachment of government into the lives of the American people he has felt to make a stand for freedom.  He has drawn a line in the sand and that line is the Constitution in its original intent. 

    The Constitution of the United States of America is a charter to protect the freedom of man by putting strict limits on government.  We are living in a day when that supreme law of the land has been shredded by the very government that took an oath to uphold it.  By their actions the Federal Government has become lawless and stalks the liberties of this land under the guise of social justice.

    LaVoy Finicum is a real life Northern Arizona Rancher who loves nothing more in life than God, freedom, and family. His spine tingling storytelling conveys in graphic detail just how fragile and precious freedom truly is and leaves his readers with an increased desire to stand for freedom wherever possible.

    Author of Only By Blood And Suffering.

    Lavoy was raised in the back hills of Northern Arizona hunting and riding horses with my father and siblings. Born within me was a love for God, family

    After a personally painful experience 7 years ago, Paul La France found he was able to help others overcome challenging physical and emotional conditions by bringing through Universal energy transmitting it clients, often with profound healing results.

    Around 2007, Paul was remembering that his grandfather was often asked to pray for people who were ill and expected to die. His prayers were powerful and often, the unexpected occurred. The person he prayed for recovered. So while in deep meditation Paul asked that he be guided to a way of helping people much like his grandfather had.

    However, within a half hour of Paul’s meditation he felt severe pains in his spine, head and kidneys. In fact he thought that once again he was passing kidney stones. The Emergency Room doctors refuted this and added that none of the tests results were helpful in explaining his extremely painful condition. They didn’t want to release him and insisted he take morphine.

    Shortly afterwards, Paul became very aware of energies running through him and out his hands. He came to the realization that his sudden pains after the meditation had been a release of physical blockages, opening him up to flow energies which can help others. Since then, he has continued to use and further develop his abilities as he helps people over come and deal with many conditions which negatively affect their lives.
