When you have to get somewhere you've never been, what's the first thing you do? You turn on your GPS, right? Then you follow the directions to get where you want to go. But what if you don't know where you need to go? Isn't that what it feels like sometimes at this point in your academic career? You know you’re supposed to be driving and you hope you’re headed in the right direction, but do you really know what your destination is?
But what if I told you that I can help you figure out what direction you should be headed in by helping you identify what motivates and energizes you? For instance:
All of these scenarios appeal to different temperament or Inner Heroes. Once you know your first two Inner Heroes you can really hone in on what would appeal to you as a career and what majors would be best suited for that kind of career. Let’s get started.
Claim your Genius! workshop will help you identify your Inner Heroes, look at what careers best work for your spectrum and then work through the college major(s) needed for those careers.

I took the class as a junior in college. It’s taken me several years to get here as I changed my major and school three times. Boy do I wish I had this class when I was a junior in high school! The class helped me realize how I operate and that I’m cut out for certain things and not for others and I now have my plan for me – not someone else’s plan for me. It validated some things I think I knew about myself but didn’t have a way to express them – which I can now do. I’m no longer stressed about what didn’t feel right. I’m still stressed about school, but it's work and time stress...not what am I doing here stress!
My son (a high school junior) was reluctant to take the class because he didn’t think anything that I suggested would be helpful or worthwhile. But after taking the course, he has been able to explain what he wants to study in college and even what kind of school he thinks he would be most successful at. He and I have productive conversations and he’s eager to talk with others about it as well. He doesn’t feel helpless or confused as he did before. He is now more focused – and appropriately concerned about all the things he needs to do to get into college
My daughter took this workshop as a high school senior while she was obtaining her associate’s degree in high school. At the time, she was pursuing a major in Mechanical Engineering. She was encouraged to go into engineering because she always excelled at math and was told that Mechanical Engineering aligned with her skillset. Unfortunately, as she took the courses necessary to prepare her that major, she found she enjoyed school less. As her mother, I realized that while she could pursue a career in Mechanical Engineering, she would not live her best life while doing so. I want her to be successful in her career, but I also want her to be happy in her life. Claim Your Genius! gave her the confidence to look at what she enjoys, so that she could change her mind and her major. It also helped her put words to what had been an internal rub for her in that just because she was good at math didn’t mean she loved it. She starts this fall at UCF, majoring in Forensic Psychology and while she may change her major again, she knows what gives her energy, motivates her at her core, and will allow her to follow her dreams. I am grateful she had this opportunity as such an impressionable age and feel it will benefit her greatly in her life. I recommend this workshop to all high school juniors and seniors as a way to find a subject or trade to study that they both enjoy and feel energized while doing. Confucius once said, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
