Main topic: finding your purpose.


“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson


The first ever Teen Catalyst event is happening the last weekend of June, 24-26. Fri-Sun. I'm planning a father/son (age13-19) camping weekend on our homestead Burkesville, KY. Tentative dates are June 24-26.

We'll be working on building stronger relationships, not only between father/son, but also between self/others.

There will be hands on workshops where teens can learn the basics of real skills like woodworking, carpentry, welding, animal care, horticulture, and more.

We'll also have presentations on developing your interests, how to create a life/career you LOVE, critical thinking, the basics of personal finance, goal setting.....all the tool you need to create a life and career that interests and excites!!

Here's the deal, I'm only opening this first ever TEEN CATALYST event to ONLY 15 father/son attendees.

But get this, until the end of March, I'm opening registration for $175🤯

Main topic: What is your Purpose?

This isn’t a new-age idea, nor is it something that will send you down a rabbit trail seeking out spiritual mentors (unless, of course, you want it to). Instead, what we’re talking about is understanding your "Why." Your life’s purpose.

✓ Your purpose in life

✓ The values you hold most dear

✓ The reason you do anything

Questions to ask yourself to help find your purpose:

  • What would you do if you could do anything at all right now?
  • When was the last time you entered a flow state? What were you doing?
  • What was the best thing you ever did in your life?
  • What is the worst thing which ever happened to you?
  • When you were a child, what activities or hobbies absorbed your time?
  • If money didn’t matter, what would you do every day to fill your time?
  • What job would you take even if no one was paying you to do it?
  • If you were told you were dying, what things would you want to do?
  • If you had to give a TED Talk, what would the topic be?
  • What thoughts occupy your time?
  • Someone just asked you to be their mentor. What are you teaching them?
  • What kinds of things are you happy to do for someone else when they ask you for a favor?
  • What is the best experience you’ve had volunteering?
  • If you could impact the world somehow, what would you want to do?
  • What causes are you passionate about? Why?
