Download my latest favorite app. Tell your story. Win a trip to Tahiti!
My friend Peter Guber wrote a bestseller a few years back, Tell to Win, in which he makes the case that it is rarely statistics, logic or data that moves the world forward, but instead great storytelling. It may be the paramount activity of any culture, transporting history to the future using narrative, and maintaining identity, hope and imagination. I’ve been accused of being a storyteller over the years, especially when cliffhanging some travel experience, and I continue to be on the lookout for new platforms that evolve the art of the tell. So, this edition explores my latest favorite app and offers up a chance to win a trip for two to Tahiti to continue the never-ending story of our good travels.
