Everyone has a story to tell

Yep, you do too. And we want to tell it. Before submitting your story, make sure:

- The story is about you/an experience you encountered. You cannot tell a story on someone else's behalf

- It is not about your business or organization (how you started it, etc).

How to submit your story:

We accept stories two different ways:

What makes a good story?

Here are some guidelines to set you up for success!

  • Your story should be about one specific event. Avoid “life stories,” “career stories,” or “this is how I started my business” stories. 

  • Make sure your story is not be about the time you avoided something (like getting into trouble). That's called an "almost" story, and likely won't make it onto the show.

  • Know why you want to share your story. What did you learn, or how did you change after this happened to you?

  • If you were to tell your story to a friend, it shouldn't take you longer than 5-10 minutes.\
