  • The Power of Telling Your Story

    Robin Hamilton, Principal, ARound Robin Production Company

    Everyone has a story to tell – even if you don’t believe you do. Sometimes, the stories we think we need to tell aren’t the ones that need to be shared the most. As a filmmaker and journalist, I’ve had the privilege and power to share people’s stories. At the very least, an audience is entertained. Best case scenario, they are changed. MORE >

    Telling your story can help you build your brand, conquer a goal, or merely explain to others how you came to be who you are.

    My films tell the stories of people who made a difference in both small and large ways. Many of them didn’t think they were doing anything at all. However by just being, they were making a difference.

    For me, my story is that we all have a purpose – and mine is to help you share your story – because if someone else’s story connects with you in any way, that can be the missing puzzle piece that helps you see your problem, your goal, your solution, much clearer.
