This course is a result of the continued research that suggest adults in the United States today are woefully unprepared for today's social and professional environment. People struggle with effective communication, relationships, weight and health issues, depression, life purpose, achievement, discerning fact from fiction, selling ideas to others, earning enough to live comfortably, finding jobs, and overall peace of mind. These are problems that get in the way of living a happy and fulfilling life when one's energy is spent on just trying to get by. This course addresses each of those problems, and many more, with the goal of helping you avoid those problems while focusing on what energizes you most.
By the end of this course, you will be on the right track to designing the life you want to live, and living it well!
