Now is the Time to Create Your Future

Free Launching Leaders Course for BYU Independent Study Users

Where am I finding meaning and purpose? Am I living true to myself and being authentic? Am I discovering my potential? Should I make a plan for my life? What does financial self reliance mean to me? Can I succeed alone? How can I give back? How will the world be different because I lived?

Bridge the gap between who you are and who you have the potential to be. By teaching you how to bring faith-related practices into your everyday life, Launching Leaders will help you bring your success and faith together.

Create your future.
