Greg Blake Miller’s
Elite storytelling coaching for writers, leaders, and other original thinkers.
★ THE MISSION ★
To help you clarify your goals, confront your challenges, and complete the creative projects you’ve dreamed of.
We help creative minds flourish.
★ YOUR VISION, REALIZED ★
Reflect on the dreams you’ve had, the shimmering concepts you’ve longed to turn into concrete accomplishments. Now think of all the times the pieces didn’t quite come together. Every day, creative thinkers like you leave cherished projects on the shelf. Brilliant ideas remain unexpressed, powerful tales remain untold.
What’s wrong with this picture? What if you could change it?
What if you had a thoughtful guide on your journey?
At Olympian Creative, we’ll help you take action, break through blocks, and complete projects that change lives—including yours.
“Greg Blake Miller and Olympian Creative helped me think through the structure and storyline of my documentary film about Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, a project that would not be half as good had Greg not been there to offer his unique angle of vision and generous spirit … Now I can’t imagine doing a film or any project without Greg being by my side.”
– Kerry Candaele, Director, Following the Ninth: In the Footsteps of Beethoven’s Final Symphony.
★ YOUR COACHING JOURNEY ★
A Dialogue Designed for Success

3. Implement: Now it’s time to put the plan in to action. Through continuing dialogue, you will not only work toward completion of concrete projects, but also develop your gifts in ways that will enhance your future work and overall creative wellbeing.
★ CREATIVITY COACHING AND THE ART OF CONFIDENCE ★
Customized Mentoring for Unconventional Thinkers
What does it take to harness your creativity and put it into action? Your capacity for creative thought is real, powerful, and relevant. But we’ve all faced the anxiety that comes with trusting the gift and putting it to work. The deployment of creativity requires practice, persistence, and a pinch of reckless confidence.
A little help comes in handy, too.
That’s where we come in.
When you train with Olympian Creative, each session is customized to your needs and creative goals. We’ll help you take stock of your challenges and opportunities, transcend conventional thinking, and respond to an ever-changing environment with confidence and originality.
We believe that good ideas begin with curiosity, continue with study, and grow through dialogue. Such ideas—thoughts that are grounded, tested, and nurtured—lead to creative confidence. In this way, Olympian Creative revives the classic humanities tutorial method as a bridge to creative achievement. Your work with us is a continuation of your education, a leveraging of your learning.
As your work continues, you’ll break through blocks and creative anxiety. You’ll discover fresh insights, organize them effectively, and communicate them with style and passion. Best of all, you’ll gain the creative clarity and confidence to complete cherished projects. We’ll help you find your edge in the world—your own “creative genome”—and make it active in your work, your life and your community.
Since 2014, we’ve been coaching creative professionals, community leaders, talented students, and smart folks with a story to tell.

Greg Blake Miller is a great coach—and he is so much more than that. Over the course of our year working together on a memoir project, Greg has challenged me to go deeper into my story, provoked important questions, inspired me to become a more authentic and skilled writer. He has built my confidence, gently coached my weaknesses and accompanied me through the rigors of remembering and telling my family’s story.
