Hello Parent!

If you are here, it's because you are interested in inspiring your teen to be on their devices less and in the real world more.

I share the same goal!

I've been working with teens for over ten years as a teacher, coach and public speaker, helping them build confidence, improve social skills, and achieve their goals.

And if there is one thing I've learned it's that the majority of the problems teens face today–feeling down, disconnected, and distracted–are caused by teens lacking three things...

Meaningful Work

Personal Connections

An Empowering Attitude 

Why do they lack these things?

Because they spend all their time living someone else's life!

They spend hours idolizing some useless YouTube star or TikTok celebrity.

They spend weekends binging shows where they watch fictional characters overcome their obstacles, but their own obstacles remain unsurmounted.

Or they develop callouses on their thumbs playing video games, taking their character to level 100 while their own life remains at level 3.5.

Your teen is capable of so much more!

If only you could give them a kick-in-the-pants to get them moving.

This challenge is that kick-in-the-pants.

How This Challenge Works Best


You are your teen's primary coach. Watch the video ahead of time if you want to get prepared. Then, set aside time to sit down and watch it together.

Parents who watched the video with their teen and then helpd them stay accountable afterward reported having the best results.

I am a Tool

Yes, I know how that sounds, but I'm going to stand by it.

I am a parent's best tool to help their teen learn the mental resilience skills they need to thrive in life.

My methods are proven and my training is solid. I have traditional values, a masters in education, two certifications in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) based coaching, and over 10 years working with teens.

Add to that my experience in comedy, creative writing, and performance, and I'm like a Bill Nye the Science Guy, but for mental resilience.

As you, the parent, love, guide, and teach your teen, you have me in your back pocket for those times when your teen resists letting you reach them.

You don't know how many emails I've received from parents saying, "My teen came up to me and said, 'Joey said [THIS] and it made so much sense!' and I'm like, I said that to you yesterday!"

Don't take it personally. One of my greatest features is that I'm not you.

I am a tool. But not just any tool. I'm your tool.

(okay, maybe I should use a different word...)

Your teen is amazing!

And they can see just how amazing they are when they put down the distractions and
