10 Reasons Your Story is a BIG DEAL

#8: Turning Points...

          By Rick Lingberg

Over the years it has become abundantly clear to me that everybody has life stories to tell.


We live and share experiences and over time those stories naturally accumulate.


Most notably, life has its turning points.  Those moments that can only clearly be recognized and fully appreciated in hindsight.  A moment that may have occurred in the blink of an eye unnoticed for the profound change it would bring about in one’s life and the lives of others.

In the world of storytelling it is almost always prefaced with the phrase, “let me tell you about something that happened that changed my life forever.”


In this story, Gene McGowan and two of his children, Eugene and Teresa, share a “turning point” without which there may never would have been a Gene and Susan McGowan Story.  And, as you will discover…


That's A True Story.
