The first time I ever saw a Brian Andreas print was in Santa Fe, New Mexico in the late 90’s. I fell in love with the “story”, and have had it with me — in every office I’ve occupied — ever since.

It simply says:

“Most people don’t know that there are angels whose only job is to make sure you don’t get too comfortable & fall asleep & miss your life.”

Many times I have looked up from my desk and read that sentiment and chuckled. So true.

This Christmas my wonderful husband Mark bought me another print by Brian. I have a few Storypeople books and fell in love with yet another nugget of wisdom. This one says:

“This is a giant block of whatever is most difficult for you to carry & trust me on this, you’ll carry it more times than you can count until you decide that’s exactly what you want to do most & then it won’t weigh a thing anymore.”

With the print came a Brian Andreas book, Strange Dreams, with a bookmark tucked inside.

It said:
“Thanks for the order!
(No, this isn’t a mistake. We thought you should have a free book)
With Love,

Sometimes a simple act of kindness, and it may not be profitable on paper, makes all the difference in building a strong brand and loyalty. I hope you all visit his website and find your Story Person.
