Night Owl Nation is a community of entrepreneurs and creators who meet weekly to practice storytelling together.
How’s it gonna help me?
Have you ever watched a movie when you were a child, then re-watch it as an adult?
I remember re-watching The Sound of Music as an adult and thinking it’s totally different than what I remember as a child. I didn’t even know there were Nazis in story because I didn’t know what Nazis were.
The similar thing happens when you continue to practice storytelling. You’ll start to see the connection between the dots in your life. These dots are your stories, life lessons, why you do what you do, how that fits in the world, and how they all connect to each other.
No matter what you do for work, being able to communicate simply and clearly will make you better. It’ll help you in all areas of your life including job interviews, sales meetings, social media content, teaching, relationships, etc.
Who is it for?
“The one easy way to become worth 50 percent more than you are now is to hone your communication skills. If you can’t communicate, it’s like winking at a girl in the dark — nothing happens.”
Although most of our members are entrepreneurs and content creators, storytelling is a skill that can help anyone become better at their job. There’s no point being great at what you do if no one knows why.

Who is it NOT for?
I’m not trying to trick you into thinking that this works for everyone. That’s not what I’m about.
Night Owl Nation ONLY works if you actually attend your meetings. 70% of our members do not attend weekly meetings. They’re just wasting their $5/mo in my opinion.
I’ll be completely honest… If that sounds like you, save your money. Don’t bother joining.
Will it help grow my Instagram?
I grew my Instagram to 50k followers in 6 months. So I wanted to teach people how to do the same.
It didn’t work for them because their content sucks. So I started to teach how to make good content.
Very quickly, I discovered that the reason why most people can’t make good content isn’t because they don’t have good stories. There are hundreds of stories, analogies, and lessons in their lives, but they just can’t seem to connect the dots in between them.
Practicing storytelling helps you see those dots not only in your past, but in every day of your life. It’s like re-watching that movie from your childhood as an adult and seeing all the dots you didn’t see before.
Once you connect those dots, that’s what makes good content.
How’s it different from an online course?
Online courses can teach you skills like Photoshop and Final Cut Pro, but it CANNOT teach you how to be a “great designer” or a “great video editor”. You become great through practice.
Night Owl Nation is NOT an online course. We’re a community. Our goal is to practice storytelling and share feedback to learn as a group.
Each week, through practicing, we become better storytellers, content creators, teachers, or speakers.
How long will it take?
The short answer is 3 months. We found that people who attend their weekly meetings consistently for 3 months see a clear benefit in their storytelling, content, sales, and just in discovering themselves and their brand.
The long answer is forever. Storytelling isn’t something you learn and then stop. Storytelling is what keeps you sharp, on the edge, constantly thinking critically. The practice of storytelling is what makes me come up with all of the ideas I have.
Even now, when I go back to what I made a year ago, I can easily see what I could’ve done better.
Never stop learning!
Can I do it on my own?
Yes. If you want to practice storytelling on your own, I would recommend starting a weekly blog or email newsletter where you commit to writing a story every week.
Night Owl Nation just takes that to the next level. By sharing stories in small groups, it inspires new stories to tell. You also get feedback and accountability.
And most importantly, it’s way more fun!
What happens after I join?
Watching all of the other programs out there, I noticed the biggest problem is momentum. Most people are overwhelmed with the information or busy with their lives so they push it off til tomorrow, which turns to next week, then next month…
This is exactly why we have an on-boarding team who will hold your hand and take you through how the community works and how you can get the most out of it.
What’s included in the membership?
Sunday Service: We meet every Sunday as a community. I do my weekly teaching, give the weekly assignment, and as a group we prepare our minds for the upcoming week.
Small Groups: If you’re not in a small group, you’re not really in Night Owl Nation. We meet each week to share our stories (assignments), give feedback, and learn together.
Masterclasses: Our focus is on practicing storytelling, but for anyone who wants to learn hands-on skills like design, video editing, copywriting, we have replays of classes on these topics.
Wednesday Workshop: Teaching is a big part of learning. Wednesday Workshops are classes taught by community members who volunteer to teach their area of expertise.
Hot Seats: As a member you will have the opportunity to be a guest on Authentic As F*ck podcast and get 1-on-1 coaching from me.
Access to Replays Every session and every Instagram Story I’ve ever done is archived and available to watch.
Behind The Scenes: As a member you’ll be added to my “Close Friends” on Instagram so you can watch stories only for members.
Like-minded Friends! Most importantly, this community is all about people. Even though we come from different culture and speak different languages, there’s a thread that connects us all. This is a community of authentic creators who doesn’t want to follow trends.
