Jay Golden is an author, entrepreneur, and storytelling coach. Since founding Wakingstar in 2009, Jay has crafted stories, led trainings, and coached leaders for clients such as Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, the Rainforest Action Network, and Esalen Institute.
Jay sold his first business just out of college and set out to see the world, embarking on what would become a three-year journey. Finally tired of the road, he landed in Sausalito where he helped found Learn2.com—which Yahoo! called “The Most Useful Site on the Internet.”
For the next 12 years, Jay explored the edges of emerging Internet media, fascinated by its ability to transform audiences, and he began to see that little attention was going to the center of it all: the stories that inform leadership, connect every organization, and translate the most critical insights and experiences into relatable, insightful, retellable stories to guide audiences, one-to-one and one-to-many.
