Who We Are and Why We Want to Help Your Child Be Their Best
Steve’s story: My first career was in business. I was an entrepreneur and founded and sold 2 computer software businesses in the ‘90s that were listed 3 times on Inc. 500. I have had hundreds of employees, including many young adults in their first job and I know what employers look for in a college graduate. My second career was in personal and professional development. I have facilitated well over 100 weekend seminars over the last 13 years. I became a certified personal and professional life coach. At the age of 48 I went back to school for a second master’s degree in Positive Psychology. I have been married to my wife for 31 years and we have 3 children, two recent college graduates and one still in college.
Janet’s story: My career path was different from Steve’s. As a full time working mom of one daughter, and later in my second marriage, stepmom to two step children, I initially chose a full time career that would allow me flexible hours while also volunteering for school and community organizations. I later became a Middle School and Development Director and fundraiser and finally ended my professional career working for a United States Congressman for 12 years where I had the opportunity to hire and work with some of the best and brightest college students and graduates.
