...so that they can create the life they want. In this powerful course your teenager will learn that they are the number one factor in everything that happens to them. They will be empowered to take responsibility and accountability for the outcomes, happiness, and results in their lives. There is no greater gift you can give them.

Here’s the Reasons Why We
Created Own It!

The principles we teach of taking responsibility for the results in our lives by managing our thoughts and processing our emotions, are valuable at any age, but their impact can be especially powerful on the cusp of adulthood when we are just starting to create the plans and patterns for our life.

As parents, we know that these principles are not generally taught in the classroom. Most people are never exposed to them. And yet they are the most important skills and the most essential knowledge our youth can have.

We created Own It! to give teenagers and young adults access to these powerful concepts so that they can put them to work now and create the lives they want today and in the future.

A Fun Way to Teach Life-Changing Concepts

Each of the modules are presented in a clear, fun, engaging way. Using humor, videos, and highly interactive
lessons, we identify the power in true self-awareness and how to channel it to positively impact the way a teen
thinks and processes emotion.

The concepts and techniques taught in Own It! are not part of a traditional school curriculum and as you know,
are not widely understood, but they have the unlimited potential to shape and change a young person’s whole life
and allow them to create the future they want.

Powerful Insights for Parents

Own It! is not just an exceptional empowerment course for youth. It is a way for you, as a parent to understand your child on a deeper level and gain insights into their inner lives.

As part of the program, each student receives an in-depth personal profile that will give you valuable understanding into how they think, how they learn, and how they process the world around them.

Your student’s personal profile will identify their:


Strengths and abilities

Own It! opens the door for meaningful—virtually priceless—conversations.

All parents want to communicate better with their teens and find ways to really open up to each other. The challenge is how to level the field so you don’t appear to be talking down to your teen, judging or dishing out advice. One way to set the stage for genuine dialogue is to adopt a co-learner posture. How do you do that?

We strongly recommended you take the Own It! course and obtain your personal profile at the same time your teens take the course and get theirs. Picture yourselves sitting down together to share and discuss the similarities and differences in your respective profiles. Each module could be the basis for a priceless discussion about how each of you answered the reflection questions and preference quizzes.

That’s ten extremely valuable conversations! Envision a bit of chuckling and good-natured ribbing of one another and, most importantly, think about the meaningful dialogue about how you both could do a better job of applying the concepts in the modules.

Think it’s too idealistic? Hardly. It happens all the time.

It’s not unusual for us to receive emails like this: “It worked! I honestly had one of the most enjoyable, meaningful, talks ever with my son the other night about Own It. We chatted for over an hour, something we hadn’t done in a long time. I went to bed that night feeling like I’d just received something close to a miracle.”

"Own It! - fantastic life changing program"


At the DXATC we are imbedding "Own It" into all of our certificate programs. It is fantastic life changing content! Each graduate that we send out into the workforce can go out realizing that they can choose to be an owner rather than a victim. The notion of choice between victim or owner is having an equally positive impact on each member of our faculty and staff as well.
