High School Rookie (Softcover Book)

If You Have An Incoming High School Freshman Living Under Your Roof, You Must Read This.

Dear Parent,

If you want to make your teenager stop and think about the choices they are making and will continue to make as they enter High School, then this might be the most important letter you’ll read today.

I’ll show you why shortly.

But First...a Warning…

My momma always told me, “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink.”

Well, momma was right.

I can lead your student to see the value of great choices, but I can’t make the great choices for him or her.

Think about it.

Some people read the owners’ manual of a vehicle and know the importance of a seatbelt, so they wear it.

Others read the same owners’ manual of a vehicle and know the importance of a seatbelt, yet they choose not to wear it.

In other words, if you’re looking for somebody to make choices for him, well please DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS BOOK

With that said, let me jump right in and show you…


Exactly What You’re Getting

This is quite different from anything they have ever read, because...well, as far as I know it’s the first book ever written specifically for 9th graders.

I purposefully kept it short and easy-to-read.

And...it immediately starts making the case that 9th grade is the most important year of their lives...up until now at least.

Plus...it’s only 68 pages long. You could read that in 1 sitting.

Here’s just a fraction of what’s inside and how it might change your youngster’s life.

  • How my “you have a booger in your nose” friend style should help you be better and not just look better.
  • How my young son drives me to impact this generation.
  • How to make the most of 9th grade, even if you act all excited about this new journey called high school, but really are quite nervous about the unknown.
  • The truth about letting go of your past.
  • You can undo every negative action you’ve ever done, right? Wrong! But...you can move forward in a positive way.
  • Why 9th grade is the best time to start over.
  • How to reduce regret by pausing to stop and look at your life with a fresh and positive perspective of where you’re headed.
  • The FRESH in freshman (fresh canvas to create the life you want, fresh sheet of paper to write your life’s story)
  • I’m a teenager, I can control everything, right? Wrong! But you should strive to control those things you can control to the best of your ability.

We could probably stop there and you would receive enough value from the book to make this low investment more than worth it, but I also go into...

  • Why you should quit wasting energy on the uncontrollables.
  • The temptations are not what matters; it’s your response to the temptations that dictate your future.
  • Say goodbye to worrying about what everybody else thinks and…
  • Why it’s okay to be a little selfish when it comes to your choices.
  • How to reduce the struggles with temptation by rehearsing now. Yes, practice your response to temptations.
  • You need to start focusing on your grades your senior year, right? Wrong! You should start immediately!
  • Why the academic ‘fresh start’ is one of the greatest parts about 9th grade.
  • How your personal vision should drive you to self-discipline and forcing yourself to do better in school.

But then I help you realize...

  • You should go through life all alone, right? Wrong, you need a team around you and your family should be a big part of that.
  • The truth about your friends...although they might be great, they also might not always be there. Friends often come and go throughout your life. Your family will always be family.

Plus, I reveal...

  • The Secret Code System (This is worth 10 times the price of the book) I found that could save your life.
  • 10 questions to help you evaluate your peers.
  • The secret to being friendly without compromising your standards when it comes to your friends (you can love all people and still be super-selective on who you spend the majority of your time with).
  • The struggle with juggling academics and extracurricular activities (and why you should participate in them despite the difficulty in balancing them).
  • How keeping your grades up can protect you in the event you sustain a career-ending sports injury.
  • The value of being well-rounded (sports are great, but get involved in other extracurricular activities that allow you to serve and meet people outside of your own bubble).
  • The SERV acronym for why you should be involved in extracurricular activities.
  • Say goodbye to dreamless living and learn to dream again.
  • 11 questions you will ask yourself at 70 years old that you can use immediately to guide your life from now on.
  • Why you should never try to fool yourself (psss...you can’t do it).


Here are just a few quotes taken from the book:

“I would rather feel awkward and “weird” for standing alone than lay my head down on my pillow at night knowing I compromised my values and jeopardized my dreams based on some clowns who have no ultimate goals and dreams.”


“What you have done from birth until now is over and gone. You can’t undo or redo it now. The good news, however, is that you can start NOW to create the life you want. You can reinvent yourself from every angle…”


“If you settle for less now, you might be forced to settle for less later. But, if you will raise your standard now, you will have the opportunity to rise above later.”


“You should have such a clear vision for your life that you force yourself to study and do well in school.”


“You will become like those you spend the most time with.”


“You will never soar with the eagles if you are hanging around buzzards.”


“If you can get to your senior year with both a high GPA and great athletic ability, you are more valuable to a college coach.”


“You need to dream in such a way that you can attach good decisions to those epic dreams which will take you from where you are to where you want to be.”


“Start with a big picture. Then go to work each day on making that dream a reality. Make choices each day that are directly correlated with your goal.”


“I would rather crash and burn chasing my dream than safely make it to the end of my life and have tremendous regret for not jumping in the first place.”


“Our future memories are being made from this present moment until that point in time when we look back on our lives.”


If you're still here...there must be a reason.
