I want to ask you a few questions.

  1. Are you concerned about your teen's future, wanting the very best for them and not having all of the answers?

  2. Are you confident that your son or daughter is in the best career path for them?

  3. Are you confident and comfortable with college and career planning for your teen?

  4. Is your son or daughter confused and overwhelmed by all of the career options that exist?

  5. Does the college process like applications, scholarships, financial aid create fear?

You may have been stressed or had anxiety even thinking about your response to these questions. Answering the question, "what am I going to do with the rest of my life after I graduate?" is one of the most frightening, exciting and overwhelming decisions of our lives. But we're here to help.


Through our 1-on-1 coaching and life prep workshops we help your child find the best career path, create an action plan to get there, educate them on how to be successful adults when they graduate and so much more!

Our mission is to empower your son or daughter to find their purpose, and live in financial freedom. To change the social norm of having college debt, and hating your job. Let us help you and your child on this amazing and scary journey called life. **All of our 1-on-1 coaching is customized to your child's needs.
