So what's with the flying PIGs?
We chose flying PIGs to represent our successes because they are a light hearted and fun way to remind ourselves that success if always possible. The age old saying "when PIGs fly" suggests that some challenges can't be overcome. At do-over.me, we believe that with the right attitude, the right support, and the right goals, ALL things are possible.
We don't take ourselves too seriously. We acknowledge that it's always best to smile, count our blessings and say thank you. Flyings PIGs help us remember that.
And the crazy, child-like lettering of the logo?
At do-over.me child-like is an asset; childish is not. We try not to loose our sense of wonder at the world and all of it's remarkable gifts - first and foremost, each other. We like to learn; also to laugh. We aren't necessarily buttoned-up, three-piece suit conservative who play by all the rules. In fact, we like to break the rules; to step out of our comfort zones and shake things up. We like new and different. We embrace change and recognize that we are all better for it.
What’s a do-over?
It’s a chance to do it again! Just like when you were a kid and needed another chance. You know better now. You can do better now. We can help. Ready to learn more?

I’m ready to get started. What do I do now?
First, register. You can do that online here. Once you hit submit, someone will contact you to discuss next steps.
To begin work, every client will need to complete a Recipe for Success. This document will identify YOUR definition of success, begin to articulate some immediate, mid and long term goals and identify your greatest assets and your biggest challenges. With this in hand, we can begin to move forward.
Creating your Recipe for Success can be done in a couple of different ways. You can complete it on your own or with help in one of two different workshops.
First Things First is a sequence of three, 60-90 minute classes that will help individuals to first, calm down and take a deep breath, then walk through the process of identifying options, making preliminary decisions and committing to ongoing actions.
JumpStart is 60 minutes in length and offers individuals the opportunity to begin immediately working towards their goal.
How much does all this cost?
Money, money money... why does it always come back to money? Many costs are underwritten through generous donations, but you also have to have some “skin in the game."
Registration is $50 a year. Individuals with the ability to pay more, are graciously requested to do so.
