Kevin Bacon Performs

The Bacon Brothers are fabulous!

I saw them last night perform at Showcase Live at Patriot Place in Foxboro Massachusetts. I just love their music!

Kevin Bacon said something that made me want to blog about it: "My brother and I have a motto: when something goes wrong, write a song."

They say your funniest stories come from your worst experiences. But, there's something else that comes from these personal stories, and that is lessons learned. When you share your personal adversities with your audience, you share your lessons learned and when you do that, you teach and inspire your audience to take action in their own lives.

There's one more thing that telling your personal story does, and that is engages your audience.

So take Kevin's advice, when something goes wrong, instead of writing a song, write a story and include it in your next presentation.
