The Power of Storytelling by Ty Bennett...Review & Giveaway!

I am so excited to tell you about a book I read last month that I have gone back to again and again. The Power of Storytelling by Ty Bennett is a book that gives you excellent tools and tips for connecting with people. This book really got me thinking about how I connect with people. Here is the scoop....

More than one million people from 50 countries have learned from Ty Bennett’s insights on Leadership, Entrepreneurship and Communication.
When Ty was 21 years old he started a business with his brother Scott, which they built to over $20 million in annual revenue while still in their twenties.

Ty was recently featured in Utah Business’ Top 40 Under 40
Ty currently sits on several boards, including two non-profits. He is currently serving as the President of The Mountain West chapter of The National Speakers Association.
As a speaker Ty is a young, fresh voice with a fun, engaging style. Ty has shared the stage with celebrities, world renowned thought leaders and recently with President Bush and President Clinton.
Ty is the author of The Power of Influence as well as his newest book – The Power of Storytelling. His message is changing lives and reaching people around the world.
Ty lives in Utah with his wife Sarah, daughters Andie and Lizzy and sons Tanner and Drew.


Ty Bennett's new book is The Power of Storytelling: The Art of Influential Communication. This book is written for anyone involved in speaking, selling, leading or teaching.

In The Power of Storytelling, Ty breaks down the mindset, the skillset and the toolset of influential communication. This is a deep-dive into storytelling - that gives you the step by step formulas and tangible tools to craft and deliver effective stories.

I think this book would be valuable for anyone.  Really anyone.  From the successful business owner to a stay at home parent, we all have the platform at some time in our lives when we can be a powerful storyteller.  Case in point?  My audience is usually my children.  If I bark out orders to them all day is this very effective?  Not so much.  If I engage them in a story that is interesting while driving home the point of what I want accomplished (really subliminal actually!) than I am more likely to see results and everyone is happier.  This translates to anyone though.  A teacher in the classroom will get more out of students who are captivated by his/her every word than by a tuning out a teacher who can't engage.  The same thing goes for the boardroom.  If you want your staff to produce for you, you must keep them engaged.

Ty Bennett gives you a handy little book full of tools to help you effectively captivate your audience.  He speaks of making your story more about the audience and the importance of being interactive and how to accomplish this.  I really enjoyed Ty Bennett's down to earth and easy to understand method.  His own story is one that is inspiring and successful and one we should all take notes on!  This book gives the reader the tools to take his or her success in whatever they do to the next level.  An excellent read for all!  Pick up your copy today on Amazon....

Outside of my husband and children, I'm speaking with many customers every day at my family's chocolate shop. While it's not a large audience, just one at a time, it's still so important!!
