After their first child was born 10 years ago David and Melissa knew parenting was something they would need to master in order to create the family vision they had always dreamed of. They fervently sought out education and investigated a myriad of parenting books and programs. In 2010 they found Teaching Self-Government, a parenting system unlike any other where the focus is on teaching parents and children how to effectively govern their thoughts, emotions, and actions while creating communication that fosters deep family connections. Far from the behavior-modification approach other systems used, this was a tried and true approach to uniting families on a core level with all of the fruits excellent parenting has to offer. David and Melissa became Certified as Parenting Mentors and have been teaching classes all over the world ever since.
Dubbed as the “systems” guy, David is brilliant with creating, executing and managing effective systems in life. From creating funneling systems for your online business to financial systems to help you better plan and save, to communication systems within the family to strengthen relationships, David is a master. As an entrepreneur in web development and IT systems management for over a decade, David has helped thousands of people to streamline success both in their professional and family life.
Melissa lives and breathes travel. Her mother was an avid traveler who visited all 7 continents and took her children around the globe with her from the time they were small. By the age of 18 Melissa had visited 29 countries and lived in several of them for extended periods. With such rich childhood experiences, Melissa knew she wanted to teach and help other people find health, healing, and purpose in their life. She started her Health Coaching and Mentoring business in 2010. Melissa now presents at conferences, has co-authored a book, and has been teaching as a lead instructor at Healing Mountain Massage Therapy school for the last 6 years.
Combining all of their passions together has long been a dream for David and Melissa and they are thrilled to now be worldschooling their 3 children while continuing to inspire families globally.
