The Ultimate Guide for Parents: How to help your kids become self-confident, UltimateGuide4Parents Cover FINALhappy and passionate

This book and the courses are for parents, young people age 15+ and career advisers.

Over 70% of the students I’ve ever taught have one huge problem. They have no idea what they want to do with their lives so are unable to maximise their potential and this often leads to anxiety for them and their families.

Did you know there are 4.9 million teenagers in the UK with this problem and your teenager may be one of them?

Over 2,000 parents have told me that the top 5 challenges they face are for their kids to be able to:

  • Create financial independence and self-reliance
  • Work out what job or career path to follow
  • Improve their physical and mental health
  • Develop meaningful and fulfilling relationships

I’m a Jack Canfield Trainer in The Success Principles here in the UK and I’m offering a proven successful program that offers young people the opportunity to get the life and career they want with you and me as their coach.

The book and courses offer young people a life changing experience and the time to discover who they are and want they want from life.

With my guidance young people will discover their purpose in life, set some goals and discover proven steps to achieve anything they want. This will help them with subject, college, university and career choices.

We all want the best for our kids, don’t we, so let’s work together to inspire and support them to become self-confident, happy and passionate about their life and career?

My book and the courses are different because it was written on the back of 30-years working with young people, so I get what they need and use a proven set of tools and techniques to achieve the results I want for them because over 70% of people don’t know what they want from their life and career.

I tell my own story in the book. I’ve tried loads of different jobs and hobbies throughout my life. I’ve often ended up in dead-end jobs not knowing what else to do. I wish I had been able to use the tools and techniques I know teach back then. Maybe I would have made different choices or been inspired by someone to aim higher than I did. I want that for our young people.
