True Stories Told Live, September 25th, 2013

What a cosy, busy evening!

Amanda Wyman kicked off the show, with a story of living near a seniors home full of “characterful” residents, and her face-off with a particularly LOUD one. Bonnie Chan then told us how she turned her first year wedding anniversary party into a Law Of Attraction celebration – and used the Law Of Attraction to make it happen. Like me, Bonnie shows people how to do networking that’s both successful AND fun – and you can find out more about how, here: http://networktogrow.com/. Our musical turn for the night was Lisa Bozikovic, who told us about a rough time at school which could have been emotionally disabling – but, due to some youthful psychological coping mechanisms, she survived. She then sang a song so good, I could barely speak to her afterwards. You can hear some of her (amazing) music on her website, here: http://lisabozikovic.ca/

The second half began with Kimberly Huie making us salivate, then (in my case) cry a little, as she recounted a foodie trip, the last with her beloved mum. Kimberley is, among other things, a brilliant actor, and you can find her website at www.kimberlyhuie.com. Our final story came from Zebulon Pike – a gent who Blog TO called a “seasoned storyteller”. He gave us a story about being an awkward teenager – and how he had the chance to spend his summers being non-awkward – and, let’s face it, a bit of a rock star – in the Faroe Islands.

The next show – the last of 2013 – is on Weds October 30th. It’d be lovely to see you there. Find out more HERE.

If you’d like to come and tell a story at a TSTL in the new year, I’d love to hear from you. You can email me on marsha@yesyesmarsha.com

If you want to learn more about what I do the rest of the time – or just find out how to take the ick out of networking, my website is here: http://www.yesyesmarsha.com

Finally, you can get a little warning ahead of each show, by signing up to the (not very frequent)  email list here:

http://yym.ca/tstlto.

You won’t get more than two emails a month (often not even that), and I will never, EVER, give your email to anyone else.

Thanks, and hopefully see you on October 30th!

Marsha
