If you want some organizational help as well as access to some very well thought out core values and build ideas – I highly recommend taking a look at Scott’s “startingpoints” app.

As a thank you for signing up for a paid plan by Monday, May 30, I will send you a link to my team's Project video.   This team, the Capital Teens, won 1st Place Champion at the VA-DC Championship and competed at Worlds.  Just make sure you use a link in this email (<>) to get the video.
