Order Your First 100 Hours Guide

Your student has potential for real talent.

It’s time to discover it and develop it.


Does your homeschooler lack motivation?

  • Your favorite curriculum no longer excites your child and she questions the long-term purpose of her courses.
  • Your child has good character, but lacks direction for what he will do after he graduates.
  • You question whether your student will leave home with viable skills that can bring in an income.
  • You are concerned your extra-curricular activities are a waste of time and money

Give your student a vision of how he can master his future now!


Discover and develop a real, long-term, purposeful TALENT in your student that can support him in his adult life.

(By the way, this does not mean developing a cute hobby or casual art skill.)


  • A talent gives a unifying purpose to all his current studies.
  • A talent gives hope that what she is learning now will matter in the long-run.
  • A talent will guide him into choosing which college, if any, will make the most sense for his future.
  • A talent will create an excitement that will spill over into both her free time and her school time.
  • A talent will turn your student into that kind of interesting person that both relatives and friends will want to talk to.


Now! If your student is between the ages of 12 and 16, choose one of the e-course options below that best suits your needs:



  • It’s a self-paced 7-day course with written exercises


  • 9 Videos to walk you through each section, including a recorded interview with a homeschool mom
  • 30 Minute Consultation
  • 30 Day Email Support


  • 9 Videos
  • 30 Minute Consultation
  • 30 Day Email Support
  • Critiques of the Exercise Worksheets
  • Two 1/2 Hour Coaching Sessions

What you can expect from the talent discovery e-course:

This is a 7-day workshop that can be completed entirely on your own or with the help of my coaching so that you can identify your child’s talent that will bring strategic sense for the long term.

At the end of this workshop you will have a clear “Talent Statement” that can be easily understood by both you and your son or daughter. It will be a mission statement that will tell you what, who, and where you will be able to exercise your student’s first hundred hours of talent.

If you and your child can benefit from one-on-one direction, I recommend the Gold Level or the Platinum Level Package. Those premium levels allow me to give personal feedback and guidance on designing a custom talent that best leverages your child’s interests, skills, education, and environment.

What kind of talent will this workshop help you uncover for your student?

In the workshop I define talent as follows:

A set of skills in any field of human activity that is dramatically above average AND performed in order to offer a clear, recognizable value to others.

To be clear, this talent-discovery workshop is the workshop to get you started. It is not the workshop that gets you all the way to the finish line. Neither will this workshop define the final complex and detailed talent that emerges at the end of a journey of 10,000 hours of deliberate development.

Instead, once your child starts his first 100 hours, my hope is that the passion will be ignited and that you and the child will have fully caught the vision and be ready to plot the next phase of 9,900 hours left of talent development. If your child starts down this road while still young, he will be well on his way to becoming one of the top experts in a given field. Cultivating the habit of a focused excellence that has market or charitable value to others several years before reaching the age of 18 is one of the best ways to ensure a powerful acceleration out of childhood into adult life.

Why did I write this workshop?

Because I want to make your life easier! As a homeschooling father with eight children (ages 3 through 16), I earnestly began to look for ways to make our homeschooling time more productive to building a different and unique talent for each of my children. I wanted a talent that each child could call his own that would carry him forward into his adult life.

Through trial and error, and realizing that the clock is ticking, I began applying tips and ideas in our daily homeschool life to make a significant difference in the rate of talent progress. The impact of doing so in my household is clear. The application of these ideas is making a difference to my children’s focus and enthusiasm. I am
hoping to share what I have already discovered with others so they don’t have to rediscover them all over again.

Here’s a personal example. One of my sons had a beginning talent that gave him the ability to carve and grind semi-precious stones and shape metal for others to wear. This means that on any given day, he might also have blogged about the mining of iron on the island of Elba in Medieval times for his history and plowed through his memorization of the metal elements with his iPad for science.

Once you understand that you can start building your child’s passion for a unique talent of his own, it becomes very exciting for everyone in the family. To do double- time, you will also come to understand (topic is not covered in this workshop) that you can merge his talent study with his curriculum study. But in order to get started working on a talent, you must decide to latch onto something tangible that your child can work with while he is still tender in aspirations and emotions.

Therefore, discovering a focus of interest on which your child can build the first 100 hours of a talent is the focus of this workshop.

The talent your child pursues will cause him to learn how to:

  • create value for other people,
  • rise above the crowd, and
  • live a professional life with passion


A real talent will not be confused with:

  • a party trick
  • a quaint hobby, or
  • a distraction to fill your child’s spare time

Who is this guide not for?

This guide will NOT be of help to your child if:

  • you do not believe a child is capable of developing a long-term appropriate talent and passion until after he leaves home
  • you believe that full-blown talent of any kind must be a gift bestowed upon your child at birth or else not bothered to be pursued at all
  • you just want your child to have fun with a hobby or a quaint skill that you wouldn’t expect him to continue as an adult
