When was the last time you heard a great story?
Did it make you laugh? Did it make you cry? Did it move you in some way?
I love stories. I can’t get enough of them. I take them apart. I figure out what makes them tick. My name is Dan Kern. I’m a story consultant.
I work with individuals and organizations to help them find and refine their stories. Then, together, we work on helping those stories spread, far and wide. Stories are the operating system of the human race. And we sure could use some more good programming these days.
Here’s some of my story work:
