Genius Bootcamp

In 2008, I was introduced to a book called The Jackrabbit Factor by Leslie Householder.  I made some attempts to apply the principles she taught in the book, but wanted deeper understanding.  In 2011, I had the amazing opportunity to attend Genius Bootcamp, her new (at the time) workshop, and then and there I knew that I wanted to teach it. 

It's been a long time coming, but I finally am teaching Genius Bootcamp events!  This event is so powerful, and has really meant so much in my life.  I'm excited and humbled every time I get the opportunity to teach it.  It really is such a personal experience for each individual that I find it a little hard to explain.  But in an effort to effectively describe what I do and how it benefits the participants, I made a video to explain it. 

(When I went to upload the video, I found that I had already created one!  I made it five years ago, just after completing my GBC Facilitator certification.) I also found a video of me, taken by Leslie Householder, describing my experience attending Genius Boot Camp.  So, here they all are.  Which do you like best?

New GBC Facilitator, excited and ready to go! (Leslie's mentoring program now goes by a different name.  I'm an official Mindset Mastery Mentor).

What is Genius Boot Camp?

Are you excited for Genius Boot Camp yet?  I have to admit, my fave video is the second one, because the enthusiasm is really there (not to mention my makeup and hair look great.  I mean, let's focus on what's important, right? Ha ha!) But regardless of which video speaks to you, the message is the same--Genius Boot Camp is life-changing!  Come solve problems with me!

So, That Didn't Go As I'd Planned...

Last October, as I taught Genius Bootcamp, I received some direction about what to do next, for which I was so grateful.  It led me to talk to the principal at my kids' school, which led to a job that has been a great blessing for our family.  It also provided me the opportunity to renew my teaching license, which in turn has opened up additional employment opportunities.  Andy and I have both felt that for us to reach our financial and family goals--that of following our church leaders' counsel and getting out of debt--that I need to get a full-time job.  Specifically, a full-time teaching job.  It is, after all, what my degree is in, and even just a few years of full time teaching will make a huge difference in our financial situation.

So I applied for some teaching jobs.  With the teacher shortage I keep hearing that Utah is facing, I didn't think twice about whether or not I'd actually get a job.  That is, until I interviewed for one that I thought would be perfect…

Well, if You're Such a Genius...

Last weekend was my first official Genius Bootcamp--as a facilitator.  WOW!  I had forgotten how powerful this workshop is!  Not really--after all, that's why I wanted to teach it in the first place.  But it was amazing to watch each participant come to some really big realizations, discover direction, and put their trust in God to lead the way.  They all seemed so appreciative of me, but I was so appreciative of them.  I have wanted to teach this class for five years.  I got to the point where I figured it would never happen.  It turns out that I needed these last five years to give me the experience I would need to be an effective instructor.  I simply didn't have enough practice with the principles before hand, especially in terms of handling discouragement and grief.  The last five years have given me that!

 As I was preparing for Genius Bootcamp, I was searching for my own direction.  Since I lost my job a few months ago…

There is NO POSSIBLE WAY...Except...

My 14 year-old daughter posed the most perplexing question this morning: "Mom, where did you put my band music?"

Normally, keeping track of band music is not something I see as my responsibility.  But on Saturday, after her band performance, she was bused to an amusement park, and I was in charge of getting her flute and her music home.  Which I did.  I was sure.  Mostly.  The problem was, I had no actual recollection of where I had put either her flute OR her music.  Naturally, I assumed they would be together.  The flute was in its expected location.  So where was the music?

I searched the area where the music is kept.  Nothing.  I checked her bedroom.  Nothing.  I looked in the van.  Nothing.  What about the three possible "drop off" locations (you know, the ones where EVERYTHING gets stacked, but where none of it actually belongs)?  Nope, nope, nope.  The music was no where to be found. 

And then a little thought came: did my violinist daughter mistake it for …
