Science has proven that many popular ideas about willpower are the opposite or what we should be doing. But willpower can be learned and strengthened!

Willpower is a battle between our competing selves. The part that wants what's best for us in the long run and the part that wants what's best for us right now.

"The questions and assignments she gave helped me dig deeper and answer honestly about my true goals and values. If you're struggling to accomplish something and need motivation and direction for your path, The Science of Willpower is for you. It offers a concrete timeline, and Lisa keeps you accountable, helping you make strides while growing in ways you might not have imagined."

Jenny D. Teacher, Community Organizer, and Stay-at-Home Mom

"I was able to identify all the ways I was wasting money and even ways I should be spending more money. I was able to make a lot of different choices that now, 6 months later, have become habits. My savings to spending ratio is twice as good as it was before this class, and I am building wealth."

"I worked with Lisa a year ago. I have continued to apply what I learned to my everyday choices (from passing up fast foods to starting and sticking with a regular exercise routine and realizing when to say "no"). Lisa is a caring coach and is very knowledgeable on the subject."

Dorese B.

"I learned so much about how our brains work and how outside stimulus contributes to the runaway train when we feel a lack of willpower. My overall willpower has definitely improved. Lisa is able to celebrate small victories that lead to larger victories that ultimately lead to real change."
