As a teen or young adult, how do you build a successful life? How do you fulfill your dreams? How do you avoid wasting time, wandering through life, trying to “figure it out”? It takes the right strategy. It takes having the right vision, the right tools, the right support group and the right information. 


As a teenager, life can move at lightning speed. Between homework, tests, sports and other extra curricular activities, it can seem like 9th grade becomes 12th grade overnight. You are learning and growing at lightning speed too. The high school years are critical because they are foundational years. Unfortunately, many important life lessons are not taught during these years. As a result, many teens lose focus and find themselves struggling as young adults. 

This academy has been designed for teens like you, who want to succeed and reach their goals. 


As a young adult, transitioning from high school into the “real world” has its own set of challenges. For many, there seems to be pressure coming from all angles. Family pressure, peer pressure, internal pressure, financial pressure and relationship  pressure can feel overwhelming. It can also feel lonely with so many opinions and thoughts bombarding your mind. 

Does this sound familiar? 

  • Which college to attend? 

  • Is college for you? 

  • Bills? Bills? Bills? 

  • I need a job to pay these bills!

  • What in the world do you want to do with the rest of your life? 

  • Relationship drama? 

  • I expected to be further along than this!

  • My friends are doing bigger things than I am! 


For many young adults, they are expected to have the answers to many of life’s questions without having been taught the lessons. For other young adults, they are clear about their direction and have started taking the steps towards their goals. There are many aspects and phases to young adulthood. This academy was created to help young adults navigate this phase of life by offering tools, resources and a community of people who desire to be successful.

Parents are strongly encouraged to be a part of a comprehensive parenting course that helps to unpack the challenges our teens and young adults are facing while offering practical solutions. As a part of the Maximum Impact Youth & Young Adult Success Academy, Jay recognized the need for this parenting course as a support for the entire family.

Parenting the 21st Century teen can be a rewarding experience but it can also come with its share of unique challenges. Today’s teens are presented with a host of opportunities and challenges. For the first time in recorded history, modern technology has created an environment where they can learn, earn and make life-altering decisions at lightning speed.

Social media in conjunction with traditional media has an ever-increasing influence in their lives.

Happy Family

The parents of these teens are faced with helping them take advantage of the benefits of modern technology while helping them navigate the potential pitfalls that await them.

In addition to modern technology, today’s teens are faced with family challenges and expectations along with social and internal pressures. Without the proper guidance and response to these issues, many teens are making unwise choices that carry severe consequences.
