Services Offered


It astounds us how little we were taught about the mind, its power, and its role in our lives. Our lives did not begin to change until we realized that our minds have the power to either unlock or stifle our full potential. We are now teaching others what we have come to know. If your life isn’t reflecting what you want, you need to challenge your thinking patterns. It’s about more than just things; it’s about relationships, hopes and dreams, peace, joy, and happiness. Bring us to your group or sign up for one of our workshops when they become available. (Make certain you’re following us.) Our courses will literally change your life and push you to overcome obstacles that are oftenly self-imposed or learned/acquired generationally.


UPgraders Academy

One thing we’ve realized is that we are purposed to help people come out of mediocrity. Having worked in different areas of county and state government, we believe that many employed people deal with the conditioning of the mind and heart as a result of personal and professional life experiences. We know this to be limiting beliefs, cushioned by comfort zones. Comfort zones may feel good in the moment, but over time, the comfort fades and life reveals shortcomings, lack, and loss. It’s time to break free and join The UPgraders Academy. This membership gives you access to The UPgraders’ ongoing personal development coaching, training, and challenge-based community. It’s time to address the issues that are causing roadblocks into your future. Prepare to increase your level of influence, your visibility, confidence; and tips and tools to help take your life to the next level.
