Take us back to the moment.
How did it feel? What did it look like?
Transport us to that time.
Rather than recount the abstract arc of your journey, pinpoint the moments. The time there was sweat beading up on your forehead as you contemplated the offer on the table. You felt like an imposter and like you had no business making a counteroffer, but you said it anyways. And you waited. The silence lasted a while and it was all you could do to hold eye-contact. Finally the woman on the other side of the table said “yes.”
That is what people want to hear. So take us there.
