One of the greatest gifts we can be given is to discover what we are meant to do, and then be allowed to do it to make a living and live a life.I was one of the lucky ones.


My gift was storytelling.


I didn’t look for or plan it. It is just part of who I am. Storytelling has not only blessed me with a long broadcasting and speaking career, it has also helped me develop a long client-list of businesses and services for which and whom I simply told true stories about their products and what they could do for my listeners.


Many have said that storytelling is the best way to communicate. It not only brings joy to the teller, but properly told, a story can also bring joy to the listener. Which begs the question:


Are we slowly losing our ability to communicate with each other? With constant texting, abbreviations, Emojis, and Emoticons, are we losing personal touch with one another?


Is that why we are so divided and territorial about what we have and what we believe?


I firmly believe that those people who maintain their verbal skills and take the time to tell stories will, in the long term, win, by keeping things personal.


Thanks for looking in on this website. I invite you to explore the various links you see on the left, all of which have to do with one thing:


All the links, especially my Blog, are dedicated to storytelling, the warmest, most enjoyable and effective ways to communicate.

            Jack’s Book – “Big Sky Café (& Other Schools I’ve Attended)” – is a collection of stories about growing up in Montana and observing the human condition in most of its forms by hanging out in a local gathering place - Big Sky Cafe.  To Quote from the title story: “We are all bound together by a common denominator, that sometimes sticky glue of human experience that we thought happened only to us.  It's a joy to find that these moments of personal triumph or turmoil happened to everybody, in one way or another.  And it's the ‘one way or another’ that makes for a good story.”  So, find a comfortable chair, sit back and enjoy.  There are treasures in your mental attic you have either misplaced or haven’t examined in a long, long time.  They’re in this book.
