You Are In A Battle Over Emotions

Humans are feeling beings that occasionally think. It’s true. We all make decisions using emotion. So, if you aren’t connecting with people on a deep, emotional level, then you’re going to suffer from fewer clients, sub-par employees, and lack of investment funding.

To solve this problem, you need to tell emotionally-charged stories. Watch the animation below to see the kind of story you’ll be able to tell with our help.

Your Fellow Impact Makers


Karl Pontau

Owner, Creator & Director

The Story Maker

I’m alive because a small, dedicated group of family, friends, community members, and medical professionals helped me overcome two brain tumors when I was 15. It showed me the impact people can have when they work together. My purpose in life is to help people like you build strong connections with the right people so you can have a positive impact on the world. I am YOUR story maker…

Don’t Be a Statistic

Are you struggling to get your story brand and overall messaging understood?

What is your challenge? Is it to get investors to invest in your business, clients not sure what it is you do or employees just need proper training?

If you’re going to thrive in the post-COVID economy, you need to build strong, emotional connections with your clients, employees, and investors. Without them, you’ll feel the pain and frustration of poor lead generation, fewer sales, and slower growth. More of your competitors are using storytelling and animation in their marketing than ever before. Can you afford to be left behind?  Don’t let poor communication keep you from making the positive impact you were born to make.
