Why Your Story Matters
You’re sitting down to start a project—a blog, a manuscript, a marketing piece—but you find yourself stuck. Your hands hover over the keyboard, hesitant and unsure. You know what you want to say, and you’re sure that it should be said, but where’s your foundation? How will your readers relate? Which words will best represent your true point of view?
The answer is found in knowing who you are, and knowing who you are requires understanding your story.
Your story is a compilation of events and attitudes, feelings and facts. Digging in and crafting your personal narrative builds the foundation for the work to come. If you are an author, the manuscripts you write are full of characters and plots enriched by your personal experiences. As a small business owner, your management style and operation approach are a product of your ideals and mindset. Every single success and challenge that comes your way and comprises your story settles into the foundation of what you become. Your story is the cornerstone of all you build in this life, and understanding it provides strength and stability.

Writers, business owners, authors, and artists often share a common purpose; They are working tirelessly to realize their dreams.
All work tirelessly, sacrifice much, and ignore naysayers to achieve their objectives, and why would these dreamers want to present anything less than a perfect product? That’s where the Book Nerds have found their niche. We pride ourselves on being more than editors—we’re dream champions!
