Can Do: Storytelling Your Way to Success

Sep 21, 2018

On this week’s episode of "Can Do," Jennifer Sheets, a writer and English professor at the University of Montana, talks about her success in winning the 2018 John Ruffato Business Startup Challenge, along with $22,000 in start-up funding.

Sheets entered the competition with no business background or training. But her idea to create StorySquares won over the contest judges. It's a web-based writing platform for individuals, schools, and businesses that would let users complete a writing task from beginning to end using digital storyboarding methods.
