People love a good success story, so reading about a startup that’s making it is something that could help more people pay attention to you, and eventually like or use your product or service. Don’t use a public-relations tone. Tell your story in a more human way – how you got where you are, what the first months or years were like, what you are hoping to accomplish. You can let someone proofread The Story, but make sure it still sounds like and is, really, you.
