President and Founder Focus Seminars of Kansas City Inc.
Founder Longview Counseling Center

I have known Jan MacDougall for almost four years. I have found her to be one of the most gifted and talented individuals I have had the pleasure to work with. No one will out work Jan MacDougall to see a plan come to its completion. She can not only start them, she knows what it takes to push over the finish line and be proud of the results. She is a team player and is not afraid to call on the individuals of a team to step up and produce at high levels.


She has organizational skills that create clarity and momentum for a project. She has produced a turnkey operational manual for our seminars to be launched in St. Louis and Kansas City. At the same time she spearheaded a team and launched the first Inspired Life Weekends in both cities. Jan MacDougall is a LEADER! She inspires and encourages in her southern, lady- like ways. Jan MacDougall is RESPECTED! Wherever she goes, she makes a positive difference that is lasting. I have never been prouder as president of this company to have Jan representing us. She is professional and classy at all times.


She co-wrote and co-facilitated a new product seminar, Focus Up. It was a total success. Jan is a “Can Do” person. Dare It, Dream It and watch the dynamo from Dallas CREATE IT. It is a rare person that can take an idea and give it life…Jan CAN!
The powerful learning process that Jan is committed to is a process that changed the lives of more than 10,000 people. The adult version of this process has saved marriages and families that felt no hope and were destined to loss in divorce and endless conflict. People who have struggled with self-esteem and motivation have found renewed sense of self and energy. The INSPIRED STEPS program possesses the same change agent that empowers young people. The impact this program has on teens, schools and communities is remarkable and endless.


Without resignation, my wife Pam and I along with our entire Focus Seminar organization support INSPIRED STEPS in their mission, vision and goals.
