Mercatus Storytelling 101


Mercatus strives to change the narrative of entrepreneurship to better demonstrate the diversity and vibrancy of Portland. In Storytelling for Your Biz, Cookie Zvovushe will lead you through several topics that business owners/storytellers struggle with, and provide you an opportunity to build the basics of storytelling.

Topics include:

Speaking with confidence

Being safe and vulnerable

Piecing together your story arc

Cookie Zvovushe (who writes under the pseudonym Jagger Blaec) is a professional storyteller. Cookie has shared stories within national publications such as O Magazine and The Washington Post while also sharing words on more local platforms such as The Portland Mercury and Portland Monthly. Most recently, Cookie has joined the team of the local production of NYC’s The Moth StoryHour as one of the show’s producers. And when Cookie isn’t sharing stories or helping give others a voice to share their own narrative you can share space with Cookie in a yoga class. You can follow more of this journey on Instagram at @Basic.Blaec.Girl.
