"You are my all time favorite convention speaker. I attended the conference in Phoenix. You were talking high school track. I was on the fence regarding continuing through high school. Your talk gave me the confidence and tools needed to go forward. I will always be grateful for that. I still have your handouts and notes I took about transcripts and electives. You were such a wealth of knowledge. My son went on to graduate high school, got a scholarship, and is one year from graduating college. I have a 10th grader now. I always check to see if you are speaking. Your info was such a game changer for me. You basically took the fear out of homeschooling high school. I really appreciate you!!!! Keep doing what you are doing. You are making a difference even if you don’t see it. Sorry it took me 8 years to tell you. Thank you."
