"Absolutely INCREDIBLE! Bravo for setting these fantastic speakers up and providing and avenue for busy and taxed parents to attend. I have learned so much in a few hours than I have pouring over books and visiting multiple health professionals over the past few years. I’m watching this late due to illness, blessed it was still available. Thank you so much!!!"

-Alice, 2019 Summit

"I love the positive, life affirming guidance these talks provide. These ideas and tools work for all humans 🙂 Thank you so much for pulling this together, and sharing it. This is vital and an amazing gift for our society."

-Anna, 2019 Summit

"Thank you, thank you, thank you! I’ve followed many of these experts for the last few years, but have still found new gems of wisdom in these talks. I have sticky notes with “a-ha” moments and memorable quotes piling up. This is great! Inspirational! I’m a better parent already."

-Julie, 2019 Summit

"This summit is the best online summit I have had the pleasure to attend. The caliber of expertise is amazing. The content so specific and spot on. I am a teacher of young gifted children. I am fortunate enough to teach at a progressive school who practices much of what has been said here. How wonderful to have such a rich resource for anyone who works with these amazing kids!"

-Laraine, 2019 Summit

Just believe in yourself.  Even if you don't, pretend that you do and at some point, you will.
