August 3, 2008
It is well established that being a good storyteller is a useful skill in careers (and not just for journalists and poker players).

1. Keep it simple.
2. Openings and closings are very important.
3. Be mindful of your story’s spine.
4. Make sure not to alienate your audience.
5. Tell the truth.
