What Students Are Saying
Hear from homeschooling moms like you!
Heather is the Queen of homeschooling strategies to get your student motivated and on track to make and meet their goals.
Heather’s goal setting course is spot on. It’s not just a list of “good ideas” but the actual process she takes her kids through to get excited, take ownership, and make things happen.
Having an out of the box student myself, I know how frustrating it can be to encourage them to be consistent.
This program gives them the confidence and personalized roadmap to stay the course. The course that’s been laid out in a realistic and doable way!
Heather has been so generous in her decades long support of homeschooling moms.
She knows exactly what to do and exactly how to teach you what she knows.
This goal setting program is the perfect first step to a great homeschooling year-our last! for our family.
– Shonda Palmer, Homeschooling Mom of 4 and wellness coach
The goal-setting workshop has been amazing so far. I have a tendency to micromanage my kids’ lives, and it has helped me realize and accept that they need to take ownership. Plus, when they have buy-in, they tend to be more motivated, so it makes the job easier for me.
I particularly found the section on unmotivated teens helpful because I have two of those kids. And their excuse is always, “I haven’t figured what I want to do yet, so I will do nothing.” Having practical ways to address those roadblocks (as well as making me feel normal) while still keeping them accountable has been empowering.
– Kisha Rahming, Homeschooling mom of 3
The goal conquering course contains practical materials to help you and your teen walk through the steps of setting up goals that are achievable.
The course is broken into bite size steps with down to earth videos and handy printables.
Heather is an excellent homeschool mentor with both the educational background and years of homeschool experience to offer guidance and wisdom.
I’ve found her materials and her coaching to be helpful, detailed, and effective.
– Lindsey Carter, Homeschooling mom of 3 teens
I’m on a mission to help families with Out-of-the-Box Teens homeschool high school with peace and confidence.
Homeschooling four of our own Out-of-the-Box Teens, two of whom graduated and are thriving at their dream schools with large scholarships and an Ivy League admission, I want to mentor other families to homeschool differently with purpose and peace.
I went from a public school science educator with a Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction, Secondary Education, to homeschooling four kids in a project based, relaxed environment.
If I can leave behind convention and homeschool Out-of-the-Box Teens, meeting them where they are, so can you!
Do You Ask Yourself What If?
What if things were different?
What if I could help turn things around for my teen?
The 12 lessons in the course aren’t just something we made up to share.

We could have:

- Insisted that work be done in a traditional way
- Saved the creative work for last
- Undervalued our teen’s biggest talents

Still Not Sure If this Course is for You? Let Me Tell You the Rest of Rebecca’s Story!
Let tell you my daughter Rebecca’s story. She’s fulfilling big dream that began when she was young.
Rebecca started sewing when she was 8.
It’s the only activity she ever wanted to do more than once.
We found ways to explore sewing with her, always pressing into new skills.
As her skills grew, we provided opportunities for her through low and no cost community efforts, websites, and books.
At 10 she began drafting.
At 11 she started attending university runway shows and decided then she wanted to walk the runway as a designer herself.
At 13 she was entering design contests and she started her sewing school.
Her design was featured in a curated collection with known adult designers and design students.
She taught 10 students in 4 sewing classes from age 13-18. The income from her sewing school allowed her to buy new equipment like a serger.
Throughout high school, she took a course we created called Sewing & Design. She had five credits of this course on her transcript when she applied to design school.
She took on the portfolio with research and designs to help children with sensory disorders.
Rebecca’s experiences and accomplishments were rewarded with one of roughly 25 slots in the Fiber Science & Apparel Design at Cornell University.
In design school, she’s thriving!
Rebecca has won art contests, made the dean’s list, designed a head turner for the annual runway show, and secured a research assistant job in the world renowned costume collection. Rebecca also worked in the department’s dye garden and was chosen as the designer for an environmental grant project all in her freshman year!
Now she’s designing six pieces for this year’s runway show as well as other designs for curated shows she applied for.
Just look at that confident look below!
It captures perfectly a dream realized as she walked the runaway with her model at the very show she committed to being a part of 9 years earlier.
Annie’s Mom Tried Dream Big & Take Action with Surprising Results
When her mom approached Dream Big & Take Action with Annie, she expected her daughter to take a while to come up with what she really wanted to pursue in high school.
She was ready on the spot.
“I want to be a bee keeper.”
I was not prepared for that.
We spent some time looking into that to make sure it was something we could actually do. It was.
Annie made a two-year commitment.
She started taking a bee keeping course in September. She’s also taken a couple of “rabbit trail” classes, like Gardening for Pollinators, and Landscaping with Native Plants.
In January, we ordered her bees, and began buying supplies.
We wanted to have everything she needed, including an Epi-Pen, by the time they arrived.
She had to paint her hives to weather-proof them, and helped her dad build a “bee yard wall” that was sturdy enough to stop soccer balls before they got into the bee yard, and attractive enough to meet with her parents’ aesthetic.
We picked up her bees on the Sunday before Mother’s Day. She installed them in the hive, which of course wasn’t as easy as it looks.
Since then she has been feeding (necessary this time of year), providing water, and other tasks.
She has a veil and suit, a smoker, and all those other fashion accessories.
She’ll do her first monthly hive inspection next week.
She’s joined our local bee keeping club, and is looking for a mentor.
She does have a project journal, which includes class notes, art she’s made, records of books and magazines she’s read, photos she’s taken, and YouTube videos she’s watched. She’s also begun journaling her thoughts and feelings about bee keeping.
She has done lots of independent research.
Bee keeping definitely has some challenges, but it’s a good fit for her – there are creatures to care for, and it links with her love for gardening and her art, and there’s also a strong literary tie which is important to her.
It also requires mental discipline, perseverance, and emotional control – bees are great for pushing your boundaries.
Next year she hopes to be part of the bee keeper program at our local botanical gardens, which will involve public speaking. She’s already able to talk quite knowledgeably about bees. It is an application process, though.
Although I have been involved in a supervisory capacity, she’s doing this on her own.
She chose her learning and is owning it.
She’s become a pretty passionate “bee protector.”
Heather, I’m so grateful for your courses. What a marvelous impact you’ve on our homeschool!
