Hi! I’m Leslie Householder. Together, my husband (Trevan) and I co-founded the School of Life Mastery. Let me tell you more about our work.
We had a rough start. Stick around and you’ll hear about it soon enough. Then, after those seven long years of frustration and disappointments, something finally shifted and everything changed. I want to tell you exactly what we did, because anyone can do it. It works, no matter who you are, or what kind of work you do (as long as it’s ethical.)
For over twenty years, I’ve been a wife, mother, author, speaker and entrepreneur, sharing our life-lessons, mostly about coping with stress, making sense out of setbacks, and conquering life’s challenges.
Since our bumpy beginnings, I became a three-time best-selling, award-winning, internationally published author of The Jackrabbit Factor, Portal to Genius, and Hidden Treasures: Heaven’s Astonishing Help with Your Money Matters. I’m a contributing author to multiple Chicken Soup for the Soul publications, and I also created Genius Bootcamp, a 3-day workshop based on the book Portal to Genius, which gives you the training and environment to help you discover genius (aka inspired) solutions to your toughest challenges.
My husband Trevan is a tech genius. His vision was to build a school based on the messages in my books, so that together we could reach a wider audience and be more effective at helping people experience true, lasting improvements in their lives. We’ve served over 50,000 students since 2002 – reaching our readers and students mostly by word of mouth – and feel like we’re only just getting started.
Why we do what we do:
I’d always heard that it’s important to “think positive”, but it took me a long time to understand many of the non-intuitive reasons behind the advice, and I’m still learning.
The thing is, I’m the kind of person who wants to know why, so I have the additional knowledge and motivation I need to actually do it:
I need a reason.
(Because frankly, it’s just easier to be cynical and grumpy.)
To be perfectly honest, thinking positive is not my natural way of thinking. Just ask my kids. I often struggle to find the good when circumstances appear bleak, but the rewards for doing so (when I finally muster the will to do it), have been tremendous.
We discovered that each life challenge and experience contains nuggets of truth. Each pain teaches a principle, and this blog and our school is dedicated to sharing our journey and revealing the hidden principles we discovered along the way. We hope it helps encourage you to think positive, and discover with us the deeper reasons as to why it’s worth the effort.
Most of my posts will be a true story from life with my kids, our business shenanigans, or a reaction to events relative to our work.
So far, my most profound posts seem to be those which were created as I coached myself, to get me through a time when I was feeling particularly discouraged or stressed.
You probably won’t always know which posts those are, but if one strikes you as more powerful than another, you can guess that I was probably dealing with something pretty heavy at the time.
We certainly don’t present our thoughts and ideas authoritatively as shining examples of people who live well the principles of success. I, for one, simply write to keep my own thoughts in check. If you can learn something from them as well, I’ll just be happy that the challenges we experience will not be in vain.
I welcome your comments and feedback on each post. Sometimes I see things one way, and another person’s point of view can help me recognize my blind spots. For all comments, I am grateful.
