What's Your Lede?

As newspaper or magazine editors often tell writers, if you get the lede of the story right, everything else will fall into place.  

So then, what's the lede of your life? 

What's the sentence, theme, or focus of your work or relationships? What do you do and who are you becoming that grips people? 

Hint: it's not a job title. 

My friend Shanley's lede is strengthening people. Everything she does goes back to that, whether she's an entrepreneur, an activist, a friend, or a business partner.  

So, what's your lede? Give it to me in as few words as possible. 

My lede is telling stories. I can't wait to hear yours.
