Homework for Life

Homework for Life is a system delivered via workshop or individual coaching that teaches people to find, collect, and reflect upon the multitude of storyworthy moments of their lives in order to generate content for stories, shift personal perspectives, find greater meaning in life, and promote happiness.

Homework For Life can also be implemented in the corporate and nonprofit setting in order to collect and monetize stories from the organization for the purposes of advertising and marketing, training, public relations, and promotion.

Contact Matthew for details on how he can help you implement this system into your personal or professional life or into your business, nonprofit, or corporate culture.
