About the Founder
Have you ever enrolled in a college course and then stopped attending that course? Or maybe you attended, but you never did any of the assignments that were required for you to earn a passing grade in the course. Or maybe you applied to college, got accepted, started attending courses, and then dropped out before completing your degree.
I’m sure you know that your inability to achieve academic success has little to do with your intelligence. But you may not know why sticking to your goal of completing a course or even earning a degree is so hard for you to do.
Have you ever considered that your struggles have to do with your relationship to learning and personal growth? That’s right. Your deepest feelings and beliefs about learning and personal growth, feelings and beliefs that you may not even be aware of at a conscious level, are sabotaging your efforts to achieve the success you desire.
I can teach you to develop an awareness of your innermost feelings and beliefs, the ones that stop you from achieving your goals. And I can show you how to change those beliefs so that your subconscious beliefs completely align with your conscious desires for success.

The Disturbing Truth About the Subconscious Mind
Few people are aware of the power of the subconscious mind. But in fact, our subconscious mind controls the majority of our behavior. And most of us don’t even realize this is happening.
That’s because our internal beliefs—those that exist at a subconscious level—are formed during the very early years of our lives, most intensely during the first 6 or 7 years that we are here. During that time, we are massive learning machines. Our brains are absorbing information at a top rate of speed, and because we are enormously creative, our brains work constantly on interpreting that information. What we learn during those early years, and the creative way we interpret what we are learning, informs just about everything else we do throughout our lives.
What this means is that the belief systems that govern our lives are established in our subconscious minds while we are very young. And they are influenced by the environment in which we live.
And once we have established those beliefs, everything else we do in our lives will seek to align to those beliefs, even if our conscious mind believes something else entirely.
Let me give you an example from my own life of how this works.
When I was in high school, I believed that earning a college degree would be easy for me. I had the grades, I had the SAT scores, I had the extra-curricular experiences. In fact, during my senior year in high school I applied to only the top schools in the country for the subject I intended to study and I was accepted to ALL OF THEM!
But when I got to college, none of that mattered. I struggled every day for years to achieve my dream. In fact, I dropped out of college four different times, from four different schools, before I finally earned my first academic degree. This happened despite the fact that when I finished high school, my number one goal in life was to earn a college degree. Graduating from college was all I thought about. It was really all that I wanted at that time.
Eventually, I had to step back and ask myself why achieving this goal was so hard for me to do.
I learned to understand my struggles to succeed in college were the result of the belief systems that had formed in my subconscious mind during my childhood. Simply put, I once held a subconscious belief that college success was not for me.
But knowing that my subconscious beliefs were not aligned with my conscious desires did little to help me achieve the success in life I desired.
All that changed when I learned a powerful technique for aligning my subconscious beliefs with my conscious desires.
Now, I am on a mission to share this technique with the world.
