Join me in listening to this fun interview with Téa Silvestre Godfrey. Like me, Téa loves stories and in fact she says she is all about stories, telling them, listening to them, and figuring out what they mean.
She began with her own story of being the eldest of six children and her job was to do loads of laundry when she was only eleven, because her mom was constantly pregnant. She made this job more fun by pretending she was running a laundromat.
This was one of many make believe businesses she owned, so it was no surprise that she ended up as an entrepreneur, running a marketing company after 20 years working in the marketing industry.
She’s also the author of “Attract and Feed a Hungry Crowd: How Thinking Like a Chef Can Help You Build a Solid Business,” and the “Tarotic Story Prompts Deck for Business Storytellers.” Her writing is often seen on some of the biggest blogs on the Internet, including Copyblogger, Problogger and MarketingProfs.
She shared how the Tarotic Story Prompts Deck came about. She started a story circle as an experiment and gave people prompts to help them develop their story-telling skills. Eventually the prompts, then written on index cards, were turned into this wonderful deck.
Téa says she loves helping people express themselves and be more creative. Doing this keeps her from being bored with her business. “It’s all about helping people with creativity and building relationships.”
Téa’s wisdom for you is to slow down. Before making any decision think about what you are doing from at least three different perspectives. Ask enough questions to help you make sure.
