Don't sell; just tell a story

October 13-14, 2018

Las Vegas, NV

What if every time you gave a presentation, made a sales pitch to a prospective client, or tried to inspire a team member, you had the power to persuade them to take action.

What if you were able not only to describe the benefits of your product or process, but also give your potential clients or buyers an immediate experience of the success or the happiness you’re promising?

You can. By harnessing the power of great storytelling.

Using his 6-Step Success Story Process™, Hollywood story expert Michael Hauge will join World Champion Speaker and business strategist Darren LaCroix as they show you a proven way to grow your business and transform your audiences.

"No one is better than Michael Hauge at finding what is most authentic in every moment of a story."

- Will Smith, Actor
I Am Legend, Men in Black, The Pursuit of Happiness

What's the Problem?

If you aren't closing the sale or inspiring action, you're probably not using powerful stories. Do you know what your business story is or even where to find it? Without using stories, you're just throwing facts and figures at potential clients, and they won't stick.

But It Gets Worse...

Maybe you already know your story, but when you start to tell it, you notice people nodding off, disengaged, or looking for an escape route. If your story is boring, that's even worse than no story at all. Maybe you've gotten help with one story, but you don't know how to recreate the process to make all of your stories more compelling and influential for your target audience. Most people think they are good storytellers but have never been trained to know the essential elements from master storytellers.

Great stories build trust and make people want to do business with you. Are you missing out?

There's Hope When You Know the Proven Process

In the Better Stories, Better Business LIVE Master Workshop, you will learn how to apply the principles of great storytelling to your business presentations, web pages, and videos. Everyone loves a good story. Savvy business owners use great stories to build their businesses. You will walk away with the power and understanding to change the emotional state of audiences, clients, and followers and to move them to take action.

You'll learn how to present your marketing story in such a way that your potential buyer, client, or subscriber identifies with the hero of that story and experiences the emotion of the story through that character. You’ll build trust so they will want to do business with you.

Hear Will Smith and Michael Hauge on what makes a powerful story:

When you tell a story about someone whose life was improved or transformed by your product, process, or principles, your potential buyers will feel the way your hero felt. And those feelings will convince them to pay for your service or your product.

What Do People Say about These Master Teachers?

“I’m an online marketer who sells through story-based emails. But I had a hard time understanding why some of them rocked while others, well . . . didn’t. Michael has been an invaluable asset, helping me understand better how to structure my stories for maximum impact. He is my secret weapon for storytelling bliss.”

- Andre Chaperon
Author of AutoResponder Madness

"I've been using Michael for over 12 years now. Because of his storytelling and coaching, one of my presentations has sold over 10 million dollars by now. On top of that, we crushed Clickbank years ago with over 2,000 affiliates because of the secret storytelling power we pulled out of Michael’s head.”

- Matt Bacak
2010 Internet Marketer of the Year, author, Secrets of the Internet Millionaire Mind

“Michael Hauge is an absolute master of his craft. Having the opportunity to learn from him on a personal level has transformed my business. Just one of the stories he’s helped me craft allowed me to bring in over $315,000 in just one evening. My business will never be the same. But the truth is, the effect he’s had on my life is much larger than just that. He’s transformed how I think and how I communicate in ways that will reward me for the rest of my life.”

Would You Like Personalized Attention? Choose the VIP Seat.

Would you like some extra personal coaching with your stories during the event? Sign up for one of the five VIP spots, and Michael and Darren will work your story in front of the group. As a VIP, you will receive extra guidance and personal attention and have two story experts crafting and perfecting the stories that will improve your business.

Be A Sponge: Continue to Soak Up the Knowledge

Research shows that within one hour of leaving an event, people will have forgotten approximately 50% of the information that was presented to them. Within 24 hours, they will have forgotten nearly 70% of new information and within one week, it drops to 90%. This is why we give you one full year to review the recordings as often as you'd like. Be a sponge!

100% Risk-Free Guarantee

We personally guarantee that you will be thrilled with the results of this program as long as you use the tools. The tools have been proven to work over and over again. If, after the first day, you honestly believe you have not received the tools that empower you to create an unforgettable presentation, let us know, and we’ll issue you a prompt and courteous refund.

How Much Will This Cost Me?

What is a proven-process worth? What is your time worth? Working privately with a story coach could cost you thousands of dollars. This is no problem for CEOs of large corporations, but what about those of us who don't have thousands to spend in order to improve?

We want to make this education affordable. During the LIVE Master Workshop, you get two teachers with vastly different backgrounds (though both are masters of storytelling) who will give you the hands-on skills you need to take your stories to the next level. All for a price you can afford.

You'll walk out of this workshop with the first step to a better business. Darrenteed.
