2. Write from your personal experience. There is nothing better than a great story that is personal and filled with passion. For example, you might start with a success you had in your work where you didn’t think anything was going to work, but, at the last minute you came up with a great idea.

3. Ask a question that is provoking. Here, separate your question from your story. Ask an open-ended question, even something as simple as, “What do you think?” works as a call to action.
