Want to help kids with EF challenges? Start here... (April 26, 2024)

Have you wanted to use your expertise in education, mental health, or parenting to help kids with executive function challenges, but struggle to know where to start?

Do you find yourself searching aimlessly on YouTube, TikTok or Google, wondering what you should do first, and when the answer isn't easily accessible, you return to what feels normal and comfortable?

If so, I'm right there with you!

Back in 2020, I knew in my heart I had so much to give to students who need help with learning key executive function skills like:

  • Creating an action plan for the semester

  • Building relationships with more experienced professionals through informational interviews

  • Learning how to budget

  • Communicating assertively with teachers

  • And so much more.

Plus, I knew I could make it FUN!

What I didn't know how to do was connect with families and other professionals who wanted to know about what I could offer.

And I felt stuck.

After spending a lot of time, energy, and money, I learned how to communicate in a way that allowed me to be heard.

And it starts with a clear value proposition or basically sharing what it is that you can do for someone else.

If you want to learn the steps to clarifying your vision and offer to the world, check out the video below.

The cool thing about a value proposition, is that it can be used for ANYTHING.

It's like a North Start, guiding your actions and aligning you with your highest calling.

Hope this helps ✌️
