Threshold Crossing

If you’re viewing this page, it’s more than likely that I’ve directed you here. So, let’s begin.

Your life has intersected with my life for one cosmic reason: I’ve been tapped to get you across a threshold. Unlike today’s higher education system, I’m not here to extend your adolescence. I’m here to transform you into a professional (ht Stephen Pressfield). And, let me be absolutely clear here, I’m not defining a “professional” in terms of earning an “A” in your classes. A professional does not do what they do well because of extrinsic motivation (grades or money). It’s called pride. It’s about honor – the esteem they earn from other professionals. And, there’s no higher honor than when other professionals, after witnessing your work, give you that head nod that says “I see you.”

Professionals know other professionals. It does not matter the field of study, era, or geographical location. You’re either a professional or you’re not. If you’re not, you’re an amateur. That’s it. That’s the choice. And, right now, you’re an amateur. That may sound harsh. But, no one starts off as a professional. However, that’s where we all have to go. And, it’s my job to get you there. So, this is me asking you if you want to join me and those of your peer group who’ve decided against living a life of mediocrity.
