I mean I was already coming to Story this year, but with the announcement of Sleeping at Last I am really sold on Story.

my sentiments exactly Kyle =)

dude,

love the run down.

you're so cryptic sometimes. e.g. I want to know what the story is behind this statement:

"I am absolutely convinced that the success of an ask is dependent on two things: a) who does the asking and b) who you're asking. Has nothing to do with the ask itself."

Who did you ask? (Malcolm Gladwell?) What did you ask for and what did they say?

You talk about 'asks' a lot. What I want to know is; who are you asking stuff/things from and what are asking for? Let us into the circle of trust.

Well I can't name names or scenarios in a public forum or i'll be blackballed but I talk about all of this at dream year weekends...

Ben,

You should check out Founders Talk:
http://5by5.tv/founderstalk

and specifically Episode 29: http://5by5.tv/founderstalk/29

to unveil some of the mystery of 50 Kings. It's a great podcast in general.

Agreed on the ASK bullet but would add that the ask does matter in respect of it being direct. too many think they are making an ask but it's not clear enough, they beat around the bush or don't clarify what they want... and thus sometimes don't get what they want.
