Entrepreneurs have a lot on their plate, especially in the early phases of business startup. Many small business owners have heard the gloom and doom predictions saying, "80-90% of businesses fail in the first 5 years." Don't let those numbers scare you. The facts are, "About half of all new establishments survive five years or more and about one-third survive 10 years or more. As one would expect, the probability of survival increases with a firm’s age. Survival rates have changed little over time.”

Helping Youth Help Themselves and Others
Bullying, failure, low self-image, and poor character decisions are at the heart of many of the challenges facing young people today. John Maxwell and Ken Lawrence have decided to do something about it. As a certified John Maxwell Team speaker Ken Lawrence is offering YouthMAX, a youth leadership curriculum, designed to give today’s young people practical tools and ideas to help them navigate life.
Ken would love to bring the YouthMAX training into your community to help youth grow and develop to meet the challenges of life in today's changing world.
There are four sessions in the YouthMAX curriculum. They can be presented individually over one class period or together as a half day seminar. They can be presented in any order.

- Pick Up - Help others who are being bullied by picking them up.
Session 2 - Developing a Positive Self-Image - Understand and apply key ways to develop and maintain a positive self-image.

Session 3 - Developing Strong Personal Character - Learn what it takes to develop strong and effective personal character.
According to John Maxwell, character is the number one differentiator between shooting stars and people who obtain and maintain life-long success. His lesson Developing Strong Personal Character teaches youth how to choose positive, character-based daily decisions that will help bring their actions and values in line and help them learn to achieve lasting personal success.
Session 4 - Learning to Fail Forward to Success - Learn powerful, proven ways to look at failure in a new way and use life’s failures to build success.
