Now, what do YOU want to do?
What do you need to make your interest, idea or intention happen?
Having a caring, thoughtful, smart and encouraging coach can make all the difference to sustain motivation and make progress. Each week, you and your coach will talk about what you're excited about, what's blocking you, and how to take small steps that lead to huge progress.
A Peer Accountability Team
Several times per week, you’ll meet together online with your coach and your peers who are also achieving something difficult. Together you’ll connect, have fun, learn with and from each other through discussion and sharing and hold each other accountable to your goals. It's like having a team or a running partner to keep you going when the going gets rough.
Tools and Inspiration
Ever have the feeling that you want to do something, but you don’t know where to start or how to keep going? Our weekly online motivational and performance-enhancing workshops will improve your ability to turn your idea or your intention into a plan of action and make clear progress to achieve results.

Interested? We have several options to choose from...
I'm not really sure what I want to do
This is why we are here. We can help you explore what you're interested in and take concrete steps to make it happen!
Week 1: Explore is the best place to start! When you enroll, you will go through a process with your coach so that you can share more about the types of things you’re interested in.
Then, your coach will help you explore options and determine what you want to focus on and achieve.
We have 3 prepared journeys to choose from:
Do you have a business idea? Great. We can help you refine your offer, do the math on your pricing, write and practice your sales pitch, prototype your product, survey potential customers and more. After quarantine, you can sell your product at our
Mercadito Jovenes Emprendedores.
2. Land the Job of Your Dreams:
We have a proven process for making an UNDENIABLE pitch process to your prospective company. Other Acton alumnae have earned internships at the White House and SpaceX, to name just two.
I think I know what I want to do
Some of us already know what we want to learn or do this summer! In that case, we’re excited to help you achieve your goals.
In Week 1: Explore, you will delve deeper into your idea, refining it so you can have laser sharp focus on achieving your goals over the 6 week session.
When you enroll you can share more about your goals so your coach will have a starting point to help you make a plan to reach them.
