Big-picture parenting

  • Are you a new parent with good intentions but no real experience or confidence in raising kids?
  • Are you a parent of pre-teen or teenager worried about their ability to be independent in the future?
  • Are you a grandparent who wants to be meaningfully involved in your grandchildren’s lives but not sure how?

These situations are more common than you think. Long-term solutions don’t lie in the world of tips and tricks though.

The best solutions come from your your own experiences, understanding your own values, and taking a much broader view of your purpose as a parent.

We call that tapping in to your family wisdom.

To thrive as a confident parent or grandparent who makes intentional choices about your family’s future, you’ve got to get a big-picture view of your leadership role and successful families work as a team.

How we can help

  • Do you want your family to feel more like a team?
    You’ve got to become a leader. We can show you how.
  • Wouldn’t it be great to stop basing how good a parent you are by comparing what other people are doing (or buying)?
    Start making decisions based on genuine values and wisdom. We’ve got tools for that.
  • Are you ready to finally understand how your mindset, habits, communication style, and family history all work together to impact your family’s future?
    You’re in the right place. We’re so glad you here!

Through our 100% online courses and virtual coaching sessions, you can become a more fulfilled and engaged leader of your family team with a personalized plan for success.
