We Help Honest People Tell True Stories - that Matter

We do things differently

Who's the Bald Guy?

That's me (Sean) in Buenos Aires, Argentina several years ago telling a personal story to a few dozen people at a local cafe. In fact, for 25+ years, I have been been  presenting in classrooms and speaking on stages (as well as a few international cafes!)

I am the founder of Grit: True Stories that Matter, which helps honest people craft and tell personal stories - that matter (and also founder of the Suicide Noted podcast). You can learn more below.
