Talent Igniter and Educational Options Websites Are Going Offline as of November 2, 2017

It is with a tinge of both sadness and exhilaration that I announce some endings and some new beginnings. Both of my websites will totally go offline in November. The Shopping Cart will shut down on Talent Igniter tomorrow, November 1, 2017. The Ruf Estimates, the Self-Esteem Tests for Children and Teens, and the Keys to Parenting PDF-book will not be available after that from this site or anywhere for the foreseeable future.

I am also closing down my Educational Options website because I will no longer accept and work with individual families going forward. My final client will be here this week on Thursday, one client more than I'd promised myself earlier in October.

This does not mean I am done writing, speaking, and contributing to the fields involved with meeting the needs of highly intelligent children and youth (and adults). I simply want more time to do the writing that will have a lasting benefit for readers even when I say my final good-bye. I have become extra interested in the social and emotional factors, especially the influences of parents and environment, on how we all end up doing in life. I've come to know way down to my bones that how emotionally healthy and stable our parents are makes a profound difference on how we'll be as adults and how we will do our own parenting. That's what I want to write and share about.

I will set up a blog site at some point and I'd love to find a way to make the Ruf Estimates available somehow going forward. I have no marketing skills (or interest) and no real way to set all that needs to be set up done, so if there's anyone reading this who'd like to look into how to make it happen, let me know!

Until then, I hope to see you all soon and over time.

Warmest regards and love,
