MEET GREG!
Greg is the most inspirational and optimistic person you’ll meet. He’s been called a 'firehouse of energy' and ‘walking anti-depressant.' He was voted as ‘the mentor that inspired and impacted [them] the most’.

Out on his own by the age of 16, he experienced years of hardship, loneliness, hunger, homelessness and depression. He struggled desperately to find the answers that would bring him a life of happiness and fulfillment.

Through the power of ‘Bibliotherapy‘ — defined as ‘the use of books as therapy in the treatment of mental or psychological disorders’ — he was able to catch a vision of the life he wanted to create for himself, and then take action to bring it about.

Today he is married to the woman of his dreams and they have seven fun and unique children. As a family, they have traveled and lived in over 20 countries on 5 continents, while Greg earns a living online doing work he loves and positively impacting the lives of youth and adults as a mentor in personal and private groups.

Greg is passionate about health and fitness, education and reading, adventure, travel and inspiring everyone he meets to Reach Upward.

"I just wanted to say thank you, class today really helped me. I feel like you each and every lesson is for me personally, you have an amazing gift to be able to help high schoolers navigate the world and to help them learn how to control themselves so they can be more productive, helpful, cheerful and kind. Your class has helped me through many things from dealing with death to having better relationships. I look forward to the next class and the many to come."

"I just have to give the best thanks I can to you for your motivation and inspiration in our lives. I had no idea of what I was getting into when I signed up for [your free videos]... Yes, yes, yes. Then I started watching more videos and looking at the website. Looking into youth mentoring for 1 or 2 of my kids... Like the stars are aligning! So, thanks for getting me excited to wake up in the morning to get to my life and ideas, for helping me to see the people in my life in a new light of love, for reminding me that my role as a mom IS my greatest dream.

5 Ways to Strengthen Your Family Culture -- FREE
A strong, solid family culture is the foundation of an excellent, holistic education, not to mention a happy and meaningful life.
Greg Denning left home at the age of sixteen. What followed were some challenging, lonely, hungry and often depressing years. At one of his low points, sitting cold and alone on Christmas Eve in the slums, Greg made the decision to create a meaningful life filled with love and family. This was the start of a personal journey to discover the secrets of a happy life.

In this 5 part video series, he shares five of the ways he’s been able to create the family life of his dreams — a super happy marriage and father to seven amazing kids. In this program you'll learn how to strengthen, solidify the footings, and build a family culture that cultivates greatness with this 5 step approach.
Parent Mentor Training
The secrets to helping your teen reach their untapped potential.
How to Help Your Teen Make Good Choices, Choose (& Be) a Good Friend, Stay Focused, Get Things Done and Know Their Innate Value WITHOUT Arguing, Yelling or Nagging.

Have you ever felt like this parent?

“How can I help my daughter while still trying to give her the freedom to make choices? I can’t watch her every minute of every day, and that would be unhelpful in the long run anyway. I believe that children will learn from their failures and it is ok for them to fail, but I also don’t think I should just sit back and watch while she is drowning. I don’t know how to help without taking over.

Make Your Job as a Parent Easier and Less Stressful — Become a Parent Mentor
Cultivate Character & Inspire Responsibility
What’s the MOST Important Thing You Can Do to Prepare Your Child For the Future?
There is countless curriculum you can use to teach endless subjects. But ultimately, what does your child really need to know to be prepared for their unique future?

Experts, business owners, scientists, and futurists agree — in today’s fast-paced, ever-changing environment, where no one can predict what jobs, society or technology will look like in even 5 or 10 years, the safest solution for the next generation is to teach them the things that CAN’T be done by computers or artificial intelligence...
Teaching Children to Manage Emotions
Emotions are powerful and wonderful... and sometimes overwhelming.
One of the greatest gifts that we can give to our children is the ability to effectively recognize, direct and utilize their emotions — ‘good’ or ‘bad’.

Emotions are the powerhouse of life — they can motivate or procrastinate; build or destroy; help or harm. When we understand how to effectively work with them, we take control of the direction of each moment, day, and ultimately our life. Bad days are a thing of the past, and obstacles are only stepping stones to our eventual happiness once we discover the power that we already have to manage and direct our emotions.
Using Family Vision Boards to Strengthen Family Culture
“Without a vision, the people perish.” Or, without a vision, the family perishes.
We need visions, dreams, and goals — as individuals and as families.

Having a common purpose or goal to work towards can bind us together, unite us in resolve, and help us travel together toward the same destination, supporting and cheering each other along the way.

Family vision boards can be one of the greatest tools a parent can have for strengthening their family. Learn how to make one — and the secrets to effectively using it in your family — in this short and powerful course.
Living Deliberately: Creating Your Ridiculously Awesome Life
Since 2007 our family of nine has traveled to over 35 countries on five continents. That’s ridiculously awesome.
What would a ‘ridiculously awesome’ life look like for your family? That’s what we want to help you create.

Our life started like most people’s — with a white picket fence, a mortgage, a career and 2.5 children.

So how did we get from there to where we are now — international globetrotters, worldschoolers, and location independent income earners (known as ‘digital nomads’)?

That’s what we share in this step-by-step program that we created for people just like you — regular people with a big dream and a gypsy heart.

“This is NOT something you can go through quickly, think about glibly, and move on. What the Dennings have written WILL make you think, and some of that process will absolutely take you time to ponder.You will find yourself asking the tough questions about your life – where you are, where you would like to be, and whether or not you are courageous enough to get there – and you may just find yourself inspired to make some major life changes.” — S. Watson

Includes 30+ videos (5+ hours) and a 7-hour companion Audiobook.

G.O.A.L. -- Get Out And Live!
“And then there is the most dangerous risk of all: the risk of spending your life not doing what you want on the bet you can buy yourself the freedom to do it later.” — Randy Komisar

Just One Life to Live -- Make It Epic!
It seems silly to say it because it’s so ‘obvious’ but — we only have one life to live!
Yet, too often, we spend our days, the currency of our lives, in frivolities and visceral pleasures instead of consciously sucking the marrow out of living. Life is short, unpredictable, and — for far too many people — often unfulfilling. You only have one life to live. Why not make it EPIC?

But HOW do you make that happen? By discovering and developing in three key areas.

Purpose (find yours), Potential (develop yours), & Peak Performance (reach yours)

In this one hour audio program, Greg shares what he discovered on a personal quest to find the secret of a happy life. From homeless, lonely, depressed teen to happy, world-traveling father of seven, he shares everything you need to embark on your own path of ‘awesome-sauce’ living.
