From My Family To Yours
Sarah was 31 and still living at home because of her developmental disability. One Wednesday morning eight years ago, Sarah refused to get out of bed, her mom was done trying to persuade her, unable to do anything but sob inconsolably. Her mom was burned out.
I know, because Sarah's mom is my mom too. Sarah is my amazing, strong, funny and resilient sister. I love my family and I hated how much we were struggling....
Together, we vowed to figure out how to save Sarah from the "Special” path--a future in day programs and group homes-- and instead create an Awesome Ordinary Life... and we did!
Today, Sarah has her own Awesome Ordinary life. She gets herself up in the morning, makes meals , goes to the gym, has a close circle of supportive friends, volunteers at the local community center... And all of this from her own apartment where she lives with her pet cat Annie.
All while Mom gets to read, walk the dog, play pickle ball and even go on vacation (without my sister)!
As I helped my family figure out the path to Sarah's Awesome Ordinary Life, I learned a lot. I made a lot of mistakes too. And now I help families like yours to build an Awesome Ordinary Life for their loved one...but without all the trial and error.
I’ve brought this gift to thousands of families so far, and I’m excited to make yours the next family I help.
Eric Goll - Family Member & Family Coach
As a parent, you're left to figure it out on your own;
"What happens to them when I am gone?"
With focused effort you might make some progress towards creating a secure future for your loved one, but life will happen and you'll lose your focus, or you'll get stuck and be unsure of your next step. And then you're stuck in the same place you are in now; worried about your loved one's future.
The longer you wait, the more you risk your loved one falling into the hands of an institutionalized social system that does not care about your loved one's best interests - they care about budgets and lawsuits. This is why you need to act now!
What if there was a step-by-step process that, once learned, could help you prepare your loved one for independence, a safe future and their own Awesome Ordinary Life?
A process that could radically transform not only your loved one's future but also ease your fears?
Well, I’ve got it for you with the Life Plan Coaching Program (LPCP)!
The LPCP will help you create a life plan and secure your loved one's future, no matter where you live or their specific disability. You'll unlock a good life for your loved one by learning our best practices to build independence, long-term friendship, community inclusion, and a home of their own. This isn't just another program; it's the blueprint for freedom for both you and your loved one!
Registration for the Life Plan Coaching Program Closes October 24th @ Midnight PT:

A Better Life is Waiting,
But... We're Getting Started Soon
Before I tell you more about the Life Plan Coaching Program... I have to warn you registration will only open for a short time because this program will be interactive with me and a group of other amazing families all creating their own individualized Life Plan.
This means you get to connect with to learn from the experiences and perspectives of other parents but we will all be starting at the same time together - kind of like a college class. So registration will only open for a short time, then we'll close registration and start the class.
How does the LPCP Work?
The Life Plan Coaching Program (LPCP) is an online course that will help you to create a better life for you and your loved one by showing you how to build a Life Plan, step-by-step, over the next 10-weeks.
Here's what you'll get when you Register:
The LPCP Curriculum:
Once you join the Life Plan Coaching Program (LPCP), you'll get immediate access to our easy-to-use Empowering Ability Portal on web browser and our mobile app. You'll get an email with the quick-start video to get you started with ease.
The program features seven modules, designed to take about two hours each, broken into bite-sized lessons of 10 - 15 minutes. Every 10 days, a new module unlocks, and we go through it together, ensuring all your questions get answered. You have the control to learn at your own pace, with personalized guidance every step of the way.
Here is an overview the 7 Learning Modules:
Engage is about getting you set up for success! You'll learn how to use the Empowering Ability (EA) portal, PDF workbooks. You'll also learn strategies to engage your loved one and other family members in the life planning process.
Module 1 is about connecting with yourself, connecting with your loved one, and connecting with others that know your family member well. We do this so that you can utilize your family's strengths and get a deep understanding of your loved one with a disability so that the life plan you build is in alignment with who they are!
Module 2 is about enhancing your loved one's capability (i.e. Independence)! You’ll empower your loved one and accelerate their growth & independence. We will continue to work together on your emotional readiness, create safeguards for your loved one, and learn how to grow your loved one's decision-making. All so that your loved one is less dependent on super-mom & dad.
Module 3 is about building and deepening relationships to increase your loved one's feeling of belonging and to have a more connected and enriched life in the near term. BUT you'll also learn the best practices of how to create an intentional personal support network so that your loved one has loving and trusted people that have their back over the long term!
Module 4 is all about enhancing your loved one's valued roles, contributing to society, and building meaning in their life! When your loved one has more valued roles in their life and contributes, their self-esteem and confidence will increase, AND they will be viewed more positively by others. This will lead to more relationships, and we open access to more of the good things in life!
Module 5 is about creating a home that is absolutely best for your loved one! Home is more than just the physical building, so we will identify all of the elements of home that are important to your loved one and design the best home for them! This module is all about moving your loved one forward toward having a home that they can call their own!
Module 6 is about support and finances! The reality is that we need the right supports to make our 5-year vision a reality! You will learn about getting the right supports with your loved one, and you'll learn how you can maximize your supports to get the best support and best return for your support dollars.
Module 7 is about creating more awesome in your family member's life! We all want to experience fun, adventure, love, nature, health, and the other awesome things life has to offer! We will be building a 5-year vision for all of these areas as well!
Also, I'll guide you to take your 5-year vision and create realistic 1-year goals and a 3-month action plan with concrete steps. These small steps are the key to implementation and making a ton of progress!

An Easier Way To Secure
Your Loved One's Future
Your loved one needs a life plan because if you don't create a plan, your loved one will eventually fall into the hands of a broken social system, and the plan that they have for your loved one is dangerous and removes all choice and control from your loved one.
So creating a life plan is something that you must do to help your loved one live a good life, and to secure their future, but other things get in the way... so let's talk about them.
Your caregiving, working and managing your family life... you are a busy person where will you find the time to work on your loved one's life plan? The Life Plan Coaching Program is designed so that you can complete a lesson in as little as 15 minutes! You've also got access to our App so that you can listen to the lessons while you're on the go or working on other tasks. The best part of the Life Plan Coaching Program is that it shows you how to change your role from a caregiver to a coach and this means that you're loved one will be less dependent on you - giving you more time and freedom to do the things you want to do!
The Life Plan Coaching Program is not an expense, it is an investment! You'll discover how to support your loved one to grow their skills, reducing the support demands on you and on paid support. You'll also gain the peace of mind that your loved one will be safe and secure when you're gone - Priceless! And, you get all of this for less than the price of one cup of coffee per day over a one year period.
No family Buy-in?
Your family has left it up to you to support your loved one to live their best life. You are the family leader when it comes to your loved one, yet when you suggest your loved one has the capability to do more, you're shut down. This happens often, you aren't alone. You can bring a second family member along in the LPCP with the 2nd family member pass, or more commonly you'll get started - and the results will do the influencing for you! When other family members see your loved one doing more, the belief will grow!
You CAN do this! You can create a secure future and support your loved one to live their own Awesome Ordinary Life. You both deserve to have more freedom, and the Life Plan Coaching Program will help you get there.
The LPCP isn't an expense, it's an investment in securing your loved one's future.

Frequently asked questions
Yes! No matter your loved one's disability, you need a positive and intentional plan for their future because the plan the 'system' has for your loved one is not good. The Life Plan Coaching Program will guide you to build the best plan for your loved one!
The ideas, tools, and strategies we discuss will focus on the core human needs, including; capability, relationships, contribution, home and supports. These principles apply to all of us! I will guide you to build a personalized solution for your loved one with a developmental disability and your family situation.
Families with a loved one with different levels of disability, including complex disabilities, have benefitted from this course.
Answer: Start with where your loved one is currently at! Your loved one might not be interested in discussing the future (often the case), or they might be excited by the idea.
No matter where your loved one is at YOU have to start building a plan for the future. We will work together to find the best way to engage your loved one in planning their future. We can engage your loved one in various ways, such as watching the video lessons together, joining the live calls together, asking them questions from the workbooks, or having family conversations at the dinner table to share ideas.
We will start with where your loved one is, and many self-advocates become more and more engaged with the program as we move forward.
If you're loved one isn't showing any interest in creating a life plan, you still need to start planning! And there is no better time to start planning then right now!
Over the 10-week course, it takes families on average 90 minutes to 2 hours per week to work through the lessons.
Now, I know you're busy! And you might not have 90 minutes each week.
So, I'm giving you full access to all the learning for 1-year! This means you can work through the program at the best pace for you and your family!
No! It is never too early or too late to create an Awesome 'Ordinary' Life. The Life Plan Coaching Program has worked for families with a loved one aged 12 years old to 48 years old! The learning and conversation focuses on adult life and applies to the stage of adult life that you're planning for, including transitioning out of school, young adult life after school, and for people entering mid-adult life and considering home options.
You can do this! You will make progress! You will empower your loved one to grow and create their Awesome Ordinary Life!
Yes! Families all across the United States, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand and more have got incredible results with the Life Plan Coaching Program!
Because the principles and tools you'll learn are based on the social model of disability, and they apply regardless of where you live. Also, because we are a global community, we all benefit from diverse experiences and ideas!

The Time is Now
To Create Your Loved One's Safe Future
I am not some Life Plan magician. I just stumbled onto a discovery as I tried to help my mom and sister in 2015 that has become the Life Plan Coaching Program (LPCP). Since then, I have continually worked on it... refining it, adding to it, perfecting it.
The result is a process that can be applied very successfully over and over - no matter your loved one’s disability.
Now is your time. It’s time to step up because no one is going to play the same role that you are for your loved one. You need a plan to secure your loved one's future and there has never been a better time... but you have to act now... registration is closing soon. Now is the time to act.
Register for the Life Plan Coaching Program and say yes to preparing your loved one for independence, helping them build an awesome ordinary life, and giving you and your family peace of mind that your loved one will thrive in the future.
You have a big decision to make. I can’t make it for you... the only thing I can do is tell you that the LPCP works. It’s worked for me, and it’s worked for thousands of families I’ve taught it to.
If you’re ready to secure your loved one's future and build an awesome ordinary life for your loved one, and yourself, then your next step is to click the Register now button below and get registered for the LPCP.
