Storytelling agency? Never heard of a storytelling agency before? Neither have we, we are the only one!
Our founder story is a bit, well, unusual. In 2012, our lead storyteller Megan quit her job, moved out of her house, put her things in storage and decided to start over. She wasn’t happy with the path her life was on, so she jumped off it to see what would happen. She became houseless and jobless as she travelled the world. She returned to Australia with 20 dollars in her pocket and one question in her mind, “What am I going to do to survive?”
While she was houseless she took a photo of the bed she slept in every night and posted it on a blog, The Bed Blog. This blog was linked to her Twitter and Facebook accounts. A daily photo was posted on social media and people started getting in touch.
“You’re homeless! I didn’t know that! You can stay at my place while I am away.”
“You need a job? I have some design work, would you be able to do this for me?”
“Want to come over, I will cook you dinner, we would love to see you and hear about your travels.”
This was powerful. The right story paired with the proper method of delivery kept her clothed, fed, housed and made her new friends. People commented on her posts on the blog and social media, encouraging her to keep going and not give up! It was humbling and taught her about the generosity that exists in the world. This is how she learned that story is the cornerstone to communications and creating relationships.
