- When trying to tell a compelling story, it is so important to first take time and listen not to respond but to understand the pain points your audience is facing.
- It might be a hard pill to swallow for some, but you are not the hero of the story. You are the guide. Meet people where they are at not where you want to appear.
- In order to change the narrative of the construction industry for the better, we all need to come together, no matter where we are in the industry, with a unified voice to share our stories. That is what will start to provide an accurate portrayal of the industry to those outside.
