Hi everyone! Thanks for checking this out and taking an active part in designing the “Adulting / Business of Life” classes I’ll be teaching this summer at the Belfair HUB (located in Belfair, Washington): I really appreciate it!


Here are the dates and times we have set up for this summer:


July 29, 2018 1pm – 4pm
Aug 12, 2018 1pm – 4pm
Aug 19, 2018 1pm – 4pm


I’ll also post these occasionally on the “Belfair Community Network” Facebook Page.


  • By the way, these classes are based on my book, “Shifting to the Business of Life, A Survival Guide for Young Adults.”
