In the midst of a global pandemic, economic uncertainty, high-demand professions and unhealthy emotional expectations, there is little room for error. Distractions and disruptions have us constantly doubting ourselves, preventing us from pursuing our true purpose. Functioning at a higher level—above all the noise, stress and ignorance—has become critical.

The key is sharpening your resilience skills.

LaRae Quy is the perfect person to teach you how. As an FBI counterintelligence and undercover agent for 24 years, she frequently encountered fast-moving, extremely dangerous situations. Throughout these defining moments, LaRae developed the wide range of mental toughness skills at the core of this course, Secrets of a Strong Mind®, including:

  • Adaptive Reasoning
  • Emotional Regulation
  • Individual Self-determination

Every profession comes with unique risks and traps. You live in a constantly changing world and carry a lot of responsibility. You owe it to yourself to develop skills that can help you prepare for and respond to both external challenges and internal foes like anxiety and negative feedback loops.

This course has been approved for 16 Continuing Education Units, CPE sponsored by Texas CPA Houston Foundation.

The best part: These are not skills people are born with. They’re something everybody can learn. Organized into eight course modules, Secrets of a Strong Mind® will help you:


Think positively and realistically

Cultivate inner resilience and be comfortable with failure

React resolutely and with grit during chaotic situations
