    Elizabeth Bourgeret - One of The Most Trusted Authorities On Teen Motivation Creates The Total Truth Workshop

     

    Our paths cross many around the globe via the internet that are accomplishing great exploits and as you know those are the individuals we thoroughly enjoy getting to know a little more about and then publishing their interview here on CNN’s iReport.

     

    Today we have one of the -- if not the most prolific and trusted professionals working within the teen aged market now. As you know many see working with teens as a daunting task due their “doing it my way” mentality.

     

    Others view them as “confused in motion” however Elizabeth Bourgeret sees and hears them in a ways foreign to most parents and this is why parents turn to her for guidance.

     

    Now without further ado here is Ms. Bourgeret:

     

    “As you know, teenagers, consciously or unconsciously, are expected by most parents to be fully functioning adults knowing how to make their way in the world -- which is just not the case.

     

    In school, they are taught how to read and write, answer exam questions but rarely are they taught life skills like goal-setting, accountability, core values, communication skills and even financial awareness.

     

    Yes, it was those facts that encouraged me to create the Total Truth Workshop which gets teens to unlock the secrets of their future.

     

    During these weekend workshops the teens are:

     

    1) Provided with the tools they need to forge the future they want

     

    2) Shown how to face obstacles as they cross their path

     

    3) Learn how to focus on their target goals then create the steps to accomplish them

     

    Also, by coming to the workshop, they are creating their own Mastermind group. When the workshop concludes, they have a built in support system and social community – which in today’s world is a big factor to “communication.”

     

    They have unlimited access on the:

     

    A) Total Truth Workshop website where they can communicate

     

    B) A private Facebook page just for Total Truth Workshop alumni

     

    C) Plus, each graduate receives an unlisted email where they can then begin communicating

     

    Something the parents really enjoy is the four hour class exclusively for the parents the day after the workshop has concluded where I personally share highlights of what was covered during the weekend workshop, how they can encourage their teen reinforcing this information, how to better communicate and hold their teen accountable.” said, Elizabeth Bourgeret, founder Total Truth Workshop
