Learn the skills that school won’t teach you.
Hi, I’m Geoff.
My adult life has taught me that formal education was a waste of time and money.
So I’ve spent the last 10 years teaching myself the skills I wish I’d acquired in school – and I’m still learning. (Read my story here.)
Now I want to share what I’ve learned with the next generation so that they can start adulthood equipped with the universal life skills that everyone needs.
Here’s what you’ll learn at Universal Owl …
