Dear Today Parents,

It takes a village to raise a child, but in today’s society, where is that village? It is here and I’m so honored to be a part of this village with all of you.

We have 3 teenagers, our oldest will graduate from high school this spring. This past summer, I began to question myself…Have I done enough? Have I done too much? Did I tell him this? Did it sink in? Was he even listening? I wanted to do everything in my power so I didn’t wake up one day and say, “I should have…” It was at that point, I decided to research and document my own important life lessons & experiences so he could reference it at any time: improving oneself, conquering obstacles, achieving goals, and cultivating relationships. Other sections include: heading off to college, making decisions, managing technology, speaking in public, entering the work world, and many more.

This “document”, now titled "YOU'VE GOT THIS! The Grad's Guide to the Big, Rich, Magnificent Life You Deserve" turned into a published book which launches today!

Pre-launch feedback includes….
“This should be required reading for all young people to build a better future and world.”
“WOW! Just Wow. I read it before giving it to my daughter. Now, I’m getting my own copy”
“A powerful guidebook for everyone.”
