Welcome! Let's learn your story!
Stories are how humans relate and understand the world around us. From childhood, we are storytelling creatures, and this doesn't change once we enter the business world. Learn why storytelling is an essential business skill and how it can help you succeed.
What are the best stories to share for your organization? Learn how to construct a well crafted story using the Hero's Journey structure.
Where should your story start? Your set up is key in order to create that "mind movie" so make sure you have CROW completed!
The number one rule in storytelling is "Show, don't just tell us." Using the five sense and your own inner monologue puts your listeners in a heightened journey with you.
Using your voice and strategic details to paint the picture you want the listener experiences is the art form of storytelling. One adjective can change the entire image---learn how to choose wisely!

Pradnya Desh, founder of Advocat Technologies, worked with Melissa Reaves to craft her winning 99-second pitch. Listen to Pradnya talk about the experience and Melissa share why she does what she does.
"I hired Melissa for six months to help us build our client success narratives for a huge investor presentation with Andreesen Horowitz. We had proven the value of our services, but needed help with how to effectively show it within our presentation . Melissa interviewed me and captured some very compelling and emotionally charged stories of our clients' financial and life situations and how we made a huge difference in their lives. I absolutely contribute some credit to Story Fruition for helping us infuse human connection into our presentations. Well worth the investment."

Pradnya Desh, CEO of Advocat.AI started working with Story Fruition during their Founders Live Competition. Not only did Advocat.AI win that night but went on to several more investor competitions. "It all started to happen after Founders Live," says Pradnya who learned the power of her own story inserted into her investor pitch went a long way for their success.
Melissa was unbelievably impactful as my pitch coach. She was able to take the meager nuggets that I brought to the table and help me construct a powerful narrative around my business that led to me not only win the pitch competition that we prepped for together, but also be invited to a number of other opportunities. I credit Melissa for bringing out the best of what we have to offer and really helping us to shine!
