The more sh*t you've been through, the more you learn, and then you should pass it on, or it was pointless.
To aim for the top in life, you need to aim for the middle in your MIND.

THE LONG VERSION
Having grown up in 7 homes/families before age 8, and having been a nanny in dozens of homes in the East Coast & the Midwest, and due to being an INTJ personality, Dotty became a mini-sociologist who became adept at analyzing environments & noticing patterns in cultures & interpersonal dynamics. It came naturally to her as an apparent survival skill from when I was younger.
Her Bachelor's in Education consisted mostly of psychology, sociology, the way people think and learn & forming individualized educational plans to cater to the way they learn best.
I used that degree to work with developmentally delayed adults & children, and writing their assessments, goals & activity plans in all areas of life...

Daily Living Skills like healthy meal planning, exercise, budgeting, & long term goal planning
Then I had a revelation! "What if we used this same method on "normally developing people (i.e. "Neurotypicals") ? I mean, maybe we could produce SUPER HUMANS!?" So, I used this method as a Professional Nanny to enhance the development of Neurotypical children in all areas of their life. I documented their progress and the parents lived it because they could see it working!
Then God proved he had a sense of irony when he blessed me with 2 boys on the Autism Spectrum! I became an expert on boosting Emotional Intelligence, & interpersonal communication to enhance their lives, while enhancing my own!
Then I started consulting other parents whose children had developmental or behavioral issues, and various adult friends with chronic life issues and then had another epiphany! "Why are they not teaching this stuff to neurotypical people? People would be so much happier, functional, & get farther in life, find & keep stable relationships, be financially stable...
I coach things that are, for some reason, only taught to you if you are a hostage negotiator, a counselor, have been in therapy, or some white collar career where they send you off on corporate retreats to learn this stuff. I teach concepts and techniques that should seriously be embedded into the curriculum in every grade of school so people do not spend decades miserable or making others miserable!
