Here’s the second part of my interview with storyteller Dave Bricker. We talked about the four elements of a story, the difference between anecdotes and stories, and how to add value to people’s lives through storytelling.

In our conversation, we also covered:

  • Whether people are hardwired to want to hear depressing stories or happy stories
  • The difference between happy endings and transformation and how that affects how stories connect with people
  • A much more effective alternative to scare tactics in advertising
  • Why children love reading storybooks over and over...and over…and over...
  • Where most advertising falls short and how to improve
  • How the most powerful stories speak to our innate drive to seek safety and survival
  • How authentic conflict brings depth to a story
  • How, in advertising, money must serve not as an outcome, but rather as a tool
  • Using audio to prime an audience
  • Different types of coaches and which audiences they’re best suited for
