Story Coaching

Tell your best stories

We all have amazing stories in our lives. Let’s work together to uncover them, and tell them in a way that delights and inspires your audience.

In one-on-one story coaching, I’ll work with you to find, craft and refine your story — whether you want to tell it on the stage of The Moth, in front of your best friend’s wedding or with your board of directors.

My storytelling philosophy comes years of experience telling stories professionally as a journalist, live in venues like The Moth and, most recently, on the TEDx stage. I also organize and host a monthly storytelling event called The Front Parlor Series in upstate New York.

How it works

My story coaching package is designed to help you craft and tell one spellbinding story. My rate for story coaching is $100, and includes the following:

— A 30-minute kickoff call to learn about you, your storytelling goals and help you find (or refine) your story idea.

— After you’ve crafted your story, we’ll have another 60-minute call where you tell me a draft of your story, and I offer the best bang-for-your-buck advice on how to take your story to the next level.

— A follow-up email with links to some of the best resources to help you up your storytelling game even more.


I’d love to hear from you. You can go right ahead and schedule your kickoff call below. Or, if you’re interested in simply learning more, download my free storytelling guide.


“Mike helped me to tell the story of my grandmother’s death from my perspective. He kept reminding me to put myself in the story which helped me really focus the narrative in a personal way. He also gave great advice to start my story at a pivotal moment and work my way back to the start. This made for a much more interesting and fun story as I was telling it at a live event.” — Julia C.
