What if I told you that you could provide students with a learning experience that could change their lives, help them become better individuals and give them a head start as they embark on their life long careers?

And what if I told you that my strategies will help these students:

1.) Produce extraordinary results
2.) Improve the quality of their lives and
3.) Guarantee their success.



1) ONE ON ONE (In Person or Tele-Conference)
2) Group Sessions (include weeks 2, 3 and 4)



I get many calls from parents wondering if I can help motivate their kids. These children range in age from 14 - 18. Some of these students have low self-esteem, others a drug problem while others are just not motivated. Being a former teacher I understand.

We all want the best for our children including seeing them reach their true potential. Having spent the last 30 years developing school programs including, "DISCOVER THE MAGIC IN YOU, SAY NO TO DRUGS," AND "LIFE SKILLS FOR STUDENTS" which have all been endorsed by the Dept. of Education, and both the RNC and RCMP, I understand the secret to success. I have also been involved in a project with the RNC and RCMP called, "KIDS & DRUGS" where we help parents develop skills to help them work effectively with their children to help them make correct decisions.

We all need a little help along the way and these seminars do just that. Everyone deserves the best from life and this is the goal of these workshops.

My 6 week program is designed to change the way students view life by helping them understand the secrets to success and to stop the self-defeating behavior that causes so many young people to fail. HERE IS THE SESSION SCHEDULE:

Week 1- Setting the Stage.
In order to have a successful program it is critical to determine at what stage the student is. There are a number of forms that are completed by the student and these forms are reviewed and discussed There is also a comparative form completed by both parent and child and the answers discussed to see if there are any disconnects. The final portion of this session is an in-depth analysis of the students thought process and to determine if there are any underlying beliefs that could hold them back.

Week 2 - Thriving in High School.
I asked a number of successful students, both high school and university, to develop a list of 10 skills they thought was necessary for success in high school. What would they want their children to understand. It is so important to get off on the right track entering high school. So many times students come from a smaller school to a large school or they finish the oldest students and become the youngest students in the school. This session helps students make the transition by helping them become aware of the pitfalls.Through video, former students talk about their experiences and provide valuable insight into what worked for them and what didn't for others. Students learn about:

  1. Friendship
  2. Consequences
  3. Priorities
  4. Potential
  5. Integrity
  6. Diversity
  7. Attitude
  8. Choices
  9. Work before Play
  10. Appreciation and Gratitude

Week 3 - Success after High School.
This session teaches students the skills needed to thrive in the working world. Too many times we see graduating students ill prepared. I gathered a number of successful businessmen together and asked the question: "WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO MAKE IT IN THE REAL WORLD?"
This session explores their answers as they provide life changing advice for young people.
This program teaches 10 life principles to help students make the transition to working life. Students get to see first hand some wonderful success stories as young people talk about their choices and how they managed to turn their lives around. Students will understand and be ready for what life is really like and learn these life principles.

  1. Life isn't Always Fair
  2. Decision Making
  3. What is Success
  4. Uncovering Your Strengths
  5. Life Rewards Work
  6. Self Beliefs
  7. Working Together
  8. Forward Thinking
  9. Social Media
  10. Discovering Your Purpose

Week 4 - How Life Really Works.
Now that students understand the mechanics of real life and how it works, how do they reach their true potential. I introduce them to my 6 immutable laws of life. This session is the cornerstone of success and these 6 simple laws provide a blueprint leading students to achieve their true potential. Students learn these life skills:

  1. How to focus and set priorities
  2. Believe in themselves and take action and most importantly
  3. Develop grit and take responsibility.

As teenagers we feel that we know everything and we are invincible. We have all the answers until we come face to face with the real world. Life is tough and a teenagers ability to make good decisions will determine whether their next few years are going to be very easy or awfully difficult. This session helps students to get prepared to make the transition from the Classroom to the Boardroom by understanding some guiding principles that every successful person uses. Students also learn to write a life plan and write a resume. They are then given 2 weeks to develop their Life Plan and resume.

Week 5 - Mindset.
It is not ability or even motivation that makes people successful. It is ATTITUDE. Everything begins with a thought and once you control your thinking you control your life. You cannot solve a problem with the same mindset that created the problem. You have to think differently and this session helps students with their thought process. It teaches the essentials to having a positive outlook, to focus on solutions, t o eliminate the thinking traps that can cause so many problems on our lives.

Week 6 - Review of Life Plan.
The students life plan is reviewed. Their resume is also reviewed by a HR professional and the student is given feedback.

Once the 6 sessions are complete the student can decide if they would like to continue and do one or both of these sessions:

1) COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY - This therapy looks at how incorrect thinking can create problems. We identify the thinking traps and provide options.

2) HYPNOTHERAPY - If a deeper problem is uncovered the student can decide which area of their life could be addressed and dealt with.

All sessions are from 60-90 minutes. In addition to these sessions, students will be given assignments to complete before each session and reviewed and discussed at the next session. There are some exercises that will be done by the student only and others that both student and parent do. This is a very intensive hands-on program designed to get students on the right track, help them develop focus, improve their attitude and marks and prepare them for working life. This program is what is missing in the school system. Students get lost, have no direction and as a result fail. Everyone deserves a chance and this program will give your child just that. I have been delivering school programs since 1997. Here is what some former teachers have said. You can also click on the testimonials link below to read what other students thought about this program.

During these 90 minute sessions, I share the secrets to uncovering your true potential. Students learn LIFE SKILLS guaranteed to provide a good foundation as they prepare themselves for entry into the work force.

We all need a little help along the way and my lecture helps students understand the keys to personal empowerment and ultimate success. These secrets can be applied in both their personal and professional lives.

These seminars are multimedia interactive presentations where students get to hear and see, first hand, some wonderful success stories from people who have managed to turn there lives from tragic ones to lives filled with promise. In addition, students get to be involved in some interesting decision making scenarios, all designed to provide real life experiences to help them develop strategies that lead to proper decision making abilities.

These next few years, after graduation, are critical to any students success. Good choices will lead to very rewarding and fulfilling lives while bad decisions can be devastating. These seminars will give students techniques and strategies they can use to carve a successful career and life for themselves and their future families.

There is also an optional 1 hour hypnotherapy session that focuses on self esteem and ego building and strengthening. One of the biggest problems young people face is low self esteem and hypnotherapy provides students with an opportunity to change there way of thinking.
