I learned a lot of things during my time working for the Walt Disney Company. But one of the most important things I learned is the power of stories. For those of us in the nonprofit space, while it’s often easy to quote lots of statistics dealing with numbers of clients helped, students, people helped; there is nothing more powerful than telling a story about the folks we work with. Keep in mind, that whether you work for a nonprofit or a for profit organization, stories are a powerful way to tell others what you're doing and how you're doing it.
