“Jump in, learn by doing, and you will build your strength and courage. Ill show you how to have rugged resiliency and a joyful spirit of adventure to fully live your life.”


“You build courage…by overcoming your fear and doing what you are afraid of doing

 ”You build confidence …by falling down and getting up again

You build intuition…by feeling inside and trusting what you know

You build acceptance…by seeing reality

You build communication skills…by getting in the moment feedback

You build respect…by getting your world and another’s world

You build endurance…by staying present all day long

You build flexibility…by being on a team and learning to teamplay”

Learn By Doing



Take Charge Now operates like life moves. The foundation is Learning by Doing.

You cannot learn how to play a sport by sitting on the sidelines and watching, you have to get in there, go for it, make messes, and make mistakes in order to learn and build skills. Likewise, you cannot learn how to really take off in your life except by jumping in, going for it, making messes, learning from them and moving forward.  You build your skills by practicing; you get good at anything by lots of repetition; you learn any real life skill by doing(click here for more)



Train Before You Need It

Train before you need it


Take Charge Now is a highly effective learning environment that teaches you how to move your mind, feeling and body in aligned action, and everywhere you cannot move comes to the surface.  Where you cannot move will surface as some kind of glitch in how you are relating, because you can only relate to others the way you relate to yourself.  When a glitch comes up, rather than trying to avoid it, Take Charge Now trains you to trace the mistake backs to its source.  This allows you to learn how to course correct at the foundational level, rather than just shifting your surface behavior. (click here for more)
