The Storytelling Academy is Perfect for Those Who Want to...

Become More Memorable & Entertaining

When you tell great stories, people remember what you say and, more importantly, how you make them feel. Use stories to elevate daily interactions, you never know where it will lead.

Connect more deeply with the people in your life

A story is a powerful way to connect with others on a deep and emotional level by allowing us to share our experiences and perspectives, creating empathy and understanding. 

Accelerate Your Career & Business

Whether interviewing for jobs, networking with professional contacts, creating marketing and sales decks, or leading your teams, storytelling is at the core of your success. 

Becoming a better storyteller

Sharing stories is the most important skill you can develop because it is so widely applied in many situations.

Be Happier

Once you start collecting stories, you will realize how much richer, larger, and more complete your life really is. 

Everyone Has Stories to Tell...

Storytelling is the SUPERPOWER you didn’t know you had

Whether you are a seasoned storyteller or just starting out on your storytelling journey, you are welcome here.

When you tell the right stories well, the benefits are limitless and exponential. Learning how to craft a great story will improve your advertising, marketing, sales, retention, branding, and leadership, regardless of your business. 

I’ve watched storytelling transform the professional and personal lives of so many of my students and clients. And me!

My partner and I built a wedding DJ business into one of the most successful and respected companies in our state—not through skill, experience, or marketing of any kind, but simply through storytelling, booking over 96% of prospective clients over more than two decades.

I tell stories to my students daily to keep them engaged, excited, and invested in their learning. This has helped me become a West Hartford Teacher of the Year, a finalist for Connecticut’s Teacher of the Year, and a nationally recognized educator who teaches in universities throughout the country.

When I was trying to convince a woman named Elysha to look in my direction and perhaps consider me as possible dating material, I did so through stories. When asked why she first fell in love with me, she did not reference my stunning physique or effervescent charm. She said, “He told me stories.

He told me things most people can’t or won’t say, and I knew I’d found someone special. I knew that we would never run out of things to say to each other.”

But I’m not a unicorn. Over the years, I’ve helped so many people achieve the same results!

I’ve helped corporate leaders, marketers, and salespeople grow their professional lives through storytelling.

I’ve helped small business owners and entrepreneurs build their businesses into larger, more profitable, and more sustainable ventures.

I’ve helped scientists share their research, garner leads for their companies, and deliver world-class keynotes on their work.

I’ve assisted the FBI’s hostage negotiation unit tell better stories and connect more quickly and meaningfully with people to help them make better decisions in moments of crisis and danger.

I’ve helped attorneys win multi-millionaire cases.

I’ve helped Olympic gold medalists, mountaineers who have summited Mount Everest, world-class magicians, famous comedians, and more tell better stories to improve their inspirational talks and performances.

I’ve helped priests, ministers, and rabbis deliver more impactful sermons and connect to their congregants in new and more meaningful ways.

I’ve helped Toastmasters win championships. Moth storytellers win StorySLAMs and GrandSLAM championships.

I’ve helped people begin to see their life through story and share those stories with themselves and loved ones, and through that process, begin to find untapped meaning in their lives.

No matter who you are… no matter what you do… storytelling can change your life for the better.

Weekly Homework for Life Prompts

Homework for Life is the basis for finding stories to tell. Matt says again and again that it’s the most important thing that he teaches.

Back in 2015, Matt was recording 1.6 Homework for Life moments per day.

In 2022, he was recording 7.8 moments per day.

His life didn’t get more interesting. His storytelling lens expanded and sharpened.

You can expand and sharpen your lens, too, and as a member of the Storyworthy Academy, you can supercharge that process with weekly Homework for Life prompts designed to encourage you to find new areas of your life worth paying attention to. Prompts like:

“Reflect on your week. Record a moment that you experienced with an item of clothing. Small or large. Silly or serious. Record that moment in your Homework for Life.”

Think back on the last few days. Was there a moment of frustration with technology of any kinds: computer, phone, microwave oven, automobile, dimmer switch, television, record player, electric toothbrush. Record that moment. Don’t judge. Just record.

The more you expand your view into possible Homework for Life moments,
the more moments you will find.
