Great stories are well-built stories

You don't have to be Hemingway to tell impactful stories. In this 6-month long course, I'll teach you the structure and habits you need to tell great stories at work, at home, and with your friends.

  • Join the community

    Get real-time feedback and discuss inside a support community of story-builders

  • Learn to "Build the Story"

    Each weekly lesson helps you focus on a specific storytelling skill, practice, or habit so you understand how it all fits together.

  • Create a habit that works

    New habits come with practice, so we'll work together for 6 months learning piece-by-piece

You've read the books...but do you get this reaction?

Want to be heard, understood, and trusted? I'll help you tell stories with impact.

What do you get?

Here's how you'll build a storytelling habit:

  • Every Thursday, you'll get a mini-lesson + assignment in your inbox. It will take you about 20 minutes to finish, but you'll be thinking about it all week.

  • On Monday, you'll submit your mini-assignment to me and the community

  • By Wednesday, you'll get and give feedback to learn from your cohort

  • 2X per month we'll have optional, live, Zoom-based storybuilding sessions to answer questions and help you with your own work

  • If you want to move faster to work on a specific pitch, presentation, or public speaking engagement, you'll get a discount on my storybuilding services
