My platform is dedicated to assisting families, especially those with special needs and gifted children, in overcoming the limitations of a system that does not cater to their child’s unique academic requirements. Through my podcasts and speaking engagements, I aim to inspire and encourage parents to explore unconventional educational methods that provide their children greater freedom and choice in their academic pursuits.

My topics offer valuable insights into various educational methods and independent special needs resources, dispelling myths and confusion surrounding homeschooling. I help families comprehend the process of creating an Individual Education Plan (IEP) for their child through the district and inform them that transforming an IEP into a homeschooling Special Education Plan (SEP) can provide them with a plethora of opportunities they may not have previously encountered.

Think being a mom is important? How about being a teacher? Those are two of the most critical roles in the world. Mary Resenbeck is both. When Mary discovered her children had dyslexia, she was terrified because no solution existed in her kids’ traditional school system to help them master core subjects. Since no solution existed, Mary created a solution: The Maverick Learning Method.™ The method worked fantastically well on her children and the other families who began using the method, but since people found her by word-of-mouth, she wasn’t reaching anywhere near the number of people she wanted to serve.

When Mary learned that an estimated 1 in 5 Americans have dyslexia, representing as many as 90% of all people with learning disabilities, she knew she had to get her message out in a far more significant way. Then she found us. We helped Mary get picked up by NBC, The San Diego Union-Tribune, Fox, CBS, and more; her revenue skyrocketed 750%, and she is now finally able to help other families like she’s always dreamed of doing.

Many thanks to director/producer Barbara McCabe (of Dr. Phil, Anderson Cooper, Katie Couric, to name a few) who created this extraordinary video spotlight. We are so honored to have Barbara as a member of the Magnify Your Message team, helping experts like Mary bring their inspiring messages to millions. Enjoy.

Interview with Steve Gordon!

This episode is of particular interest to entrepreneurs who are also parents. In recent years, homeschooling has gained popularity as an alternative to conventional schooling. If you find that your children are struggling or that the traditional education system is not meeting your expectations, homeschooling may provide the solution you seek. The best part is that you can continue growing your business while providing your children with a tailored, hands-on education.

Mary Resenbeck, a consultant who specializes in working with homeschooling families, has developed The Resenbeck Maverick Learning Method. She created this method after observing the difficulties that her dyslexic son and daughter faced in a conventional educational environment. Mary helps entrepreneurial families create custom learning plans that enable their children to reach their full potential and ensures that the process is hassle-free for working parents.

In this episode, Mary will explain how you can give your children the education they deserve without being constrained by time and financial resources.

My goal is to have every family understand they can take charge of their child’s education. My book guides parents to take an individualized maverick approach to homeschool their children to success while nurturing the family unit, making education a meaningful way to master core subjects and learn life skills in a stress-free, manageable way.
