This licensed curriculum, with trained instructors, creates success by uniquely combining Workforce Development Training of eleven business "soft" skills with the technical "hard" skill side of Freight, Transportation, and Logistics CDL. The curriculum uses a coaching methodology founded in current research that reports 85% of career success comes from "soft" people skill development combined with the "hard" skills for all career sectors.

This is the first step in obtaining the full CDL license.

    “In the Doorknob Books CDL Freight Transportation courses, students have their eyes opened to the real components of running a freight business including the team skills, variety of costs in trucking, and safety issues. Team is the base foundation of success in trucking as a driver can either make or break your company. The students learn it is not a vacation or travel, but a career with many aspects and responsibilities. This is an important course and I would hire these graduates (and have) because of the unique aspects of this training.”

    Kelly Rear, owner and driver, LLR Trucking LLC

    “Aristotle said 'We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.' In my twenty-plus year career in workforce development I have not seen a training initiative that emphasizes this belief more fully than this one. This program provides fundamental skills and habits necessary for excellence in the work place.”

    Shirley Cliff, Manager and COO for Workforce Development Board of kaloosa and Walton (FL) Counties, OWDS Certifiied Counselor/Trainer

    “The CDL course has helped me a lot. I didn't know anything about truck driving as a career or the soft skills until I took the course. I also learned that 85% of your career success comes from mastery of employment skills. I was put into a leadership role at work, and if I hadn't taken this course I wouldn't have known what to do. But from this course, I knew what to do and it wasn't hard. Please take it from me, if you're planning on getting your CDL, make sure you learn your soft skills, because that's the most important thing you need to make it in life and on your job.”

    Michael A., Course graduate

    “his was a great class. I learned a lot about how to deal with things on the job by keeping a positive attitude at all times and learning about the different job skills. The instructor was on task. I really just enjoyed everything about this class.”

    Dory L., Course graduate

    “I wanted to say how much I appreciate the instructor and the CDL class. This class helped me get my Class B CDL license, and the soft skills I acquired are amazing. I love how much the instructor went out of her way to help people as much as she could.”

    Jessica C., Course graduate

    “The CDL Freight Transportation Industry Career Advancement Course hasbeen very helpful in my life. The instructor is such a good teacher, and goes above and beyond to help students. I am currently studying the field of logistics, so now I have more knowledge to add to my resume. Although my previous career was unfortunately interrupted, the instructor helped me understand that it wasn't the end of the world. This course helped me to refocus on a new career, and now I am currently employed in freight transportation. The instructor has helped me with so much, and I don't know what I would have done without her and this course.”

    Amanda V., Course graduate

    What a High School Principal Is Saying

    Huges with kids

    “The Your Key, Your Door book is a great product. It uses concepts and methods that give youth purpose and direction, which is paramount and of vital importance for students in this day and age. It gives them purpose and direction and is the missing piece that connects the voids between obtainable information and their life.... and guides them to know what to do with their life. Using this book students turn information into true knowledge, which is when one has information and knows what to do with it. The use of these materials is important for students and teachers with all the changes that are happening in education today by providing guidance, and teaching young people skills and strategies for a successful life and career.

    I would like. But since I was given that little book I know my Life Purpose and found out I like engineering type jobs. I am thankful for this book.”

    Austin L.

    Laura A.

    “This book helped me grow as a person and learn about myself and for that I am truly thankful. Without this I would never have discovered my Life Purpose at such a young age. I now know how to stay true to myself and what to look for in a career. We all learned many valuable lessons from this book.”

I’m sure when other students get this book they will soon be on their way to discover their path in life too.”

    What Teachers and Parents are Saying About "Your Key, Your Door"

    “The concepts and methods used in the Doorknob Life Purpose Discovery books give youth purpose and direction, which is paramount and of vital importance for students in this day and age. It is the missing piece that connects the voids between obtainable information and their life.…that guides them to know how to turn information into true knowledge, which is when one has information and knows what to do with it. The use of the Doorknob materials is important for students and teachers with all the changes that are happening in education today by providing guidance, and teaching young people skills and strategies for a successful life and career.”
    Russell Hughes, principal, Walton High School, DeFuniak Springs, Florida
    (principal for 10 years in both Middle and High schools, leader of “Grade A” school)

    “I liked your ideas for parenting, and the clear step-by- step ways that are presented. Writing them down in an organized way was a very good idea. It seems that it would be easy to stay on track, which means accomplishing the goal, finding and accomplishing one’s Life Purpose. In my classroom I had a large picture of a steam engine on a track. Under it the caption read “Stay on the right track.”
    Charlie Beall, parent and retired principal, Prince Georges County Public Schools, Maryland

    “In our fast-paced world, this book is a great reminder to slow down and be a supportive parent who is here to guide our children to know and love who they are happily I learned a lot about myself in the process!”
    – Lynn Wisniewski, parent, and owner of Under The Cherry Blossoms bookstore

    “This book is a very practical, straightforward yet profound look into the life of your child and will assist you in guiding them to becoming fully alive and reaching their potential, seeing themselves as unique, valued and able to have a lasting impact on their world.” 
    – Coach Kelly Nevius, parent and President, Home School Sports of California, a physical education program for home-school schools 

    “The reason I believe this book will be helpful to both parents and teachers alike is that many of our children today have limited social and career skills and now we need to address this problem. It is sad that we have children that are not just failing in one class but several classes because the parents have allowed the children to do as they want. I feel that interaction parent/child and teacher/student needs to be improved.  “Think about it, a four-year college has now turned into a five-six year college and 75% of the students do not even go into the job field that they majored in to get their degree. Many students have changed their majors 2-3 times by the time they graduate college.  All of Teri’s books will help us to get a better understanding of our child’s Life Purpose and help us to help them succeed.
      – John, parent of one high school and two college students, and business owner

    Testimonies from Orientation Teachers in San Jose and San Carlos areas of Costa Rica of Your Key, Your Door and Tu LLave, Tu Puerta in Orientation teacher training.

    Your Key Your Door, (Tu Llave Tu Puerta) is important as it makes students conscious throughout important life experiences for them, and helps make them see what truly makes them happy and helps them become professionals sharing with the community.

    The benefits of orienting the students to make them know themselves as a person, to make them learn to rationalize and make them understand that is better to think before acting. This is why I think Your Key Your Door, (Tu Llave Tu Puerta) is very important in our curriculum.

    Your Key Your Door, (Tu Llave Tu Puerta) books create more consciousness about what kind of person they want to become!

    Your Key Your Door, (Tu Llave Tu Puerta) guides students and gives them the necessary important tools to make them plan future goals, getting to know themselves more.

    Your Key Your Door, (Tu Llave Tu Puerta) helps our students through listening their needs and the auto-evaluations, implementing self-discovery techniques and materials created by themselves to make them get to know how to make decisions, using the resources accordingly would bring positives results for all, since they would be more capable individuals for further development.

    Testimonies

    Qué Dicen los Maestros Sobre este Libro:
    Your Key, Your Door (Tu Llave, Tu Puerta) es un curso increíble. He enseñado matemáticas durante 14 años y nunca pude ver a los niños tan comprometidos como lo están en este curso. ¡Teri es asombrosa en el salón de clases y espero ansiosa un año maravilloso, pudiendo usar para enseñar el libro YKYD! Ya hemos visto algunas grandes transformaciones en algunos de nuestros estudiantes en sólo 2 semanas.»
    —Shane C, Profesor de Matemáticas, Entrenador de Béisbol y, Profesor de Ciencias Informáticas.

    «Estimada Sra. Haggerty: Quiero darle las gracias por brindar a mis estudiantes una herramienta maravillosa para guiarlos en el aprendizaje de sus Propósito en la Vida y cómo entenderse a sí mismos y a sus objetivos de vida. Your Key, Your Door (Tu Llave, Tu Puerta) guía a los estudiantes para que profundicen en sus pensamientos y los ayuda a darse cuenta de la importancia que tienen las decisiones que toman y cómo afectan su futuro. Las habilidades que obtienen los estudiantes de este libro no solo los ayudan a transitar por sus años de adolescencia, sino que también los acompañarán en su vida adulta. He disfrutado el viaje y espero que otros aprovechen la oportunidad de experimentar por sí mismos sin importar el idioma en que se enseñe.»
    –Capri Z, Maestro de Educación Vocacional

    «La enseñanza en la sociedad actual presenta muchos desafíos, tanto para los estudiantes como para el profesor. Muchos estudiantes se enfrentan con acontecimientos y desafíos de la vida y en muchos casos se sienten abrumados con las maneras de encontrar respuestas para ver a través de ellas y encontrar los recursos que los guíen. Lo que he descubierto es que Your Key, Your Door (Tu Llave, Tu Puerta) llena el vacío tanto para el docente como para el estudiante. En mi experiencia con este libro, los estudiantes pueden descubrir quiénes son y lo que quieren llegar a ser. Al establecer un propósito y una meta en la vida, los estudiantes son capaces de entender su exclusivo propósito individual. Después de haber estado en campos distintos a la educación, como los deportes profesionales y el orden público, aún no he visto un programa que se enfoque en que los estudiantes comprendan su Propósito en la Vida y su éxito en el futuro, como el programa del libro de la Sra. Haggerty. Definitivamente, todos los estudiantes se beneficiarán a través de esta experiencia.»
    —Matt T, Profesor de Matemáticas, Entrenador de Béisbol

    «Este año, nuestra escuela ha adoptado Your Key, Your Door (Tu Llave, Tu Puerta), de Teri Haggerty. Yo recomendaría este libro a los estudiantes de escuelas secundarias. Este libro permite a los estudiantes organizar los pensamientos positivos y realistas acerca de sus vidas, de ellos mismos y sus planes para futuras carreras. Muchos estudiantes en mi clase hallaron muy útil el libro. Los ha inspirado para empezar a pensar positivamente sobre su futuro, cuando su entorno no se los hubiera permitido.
    «Me encantaría utilizar otro de los libros de Teri Haggerty! No he leído otro libro que de a los estudiantes herramientas tan eficaces para el futuro actual, como lo hace Your Key, Your Door (Tu Llave, Tu Puerta)».
    —Diara M, Profesor, Director Coral

    Qué Opinan los Estudiantes de las Escuelas

    About the Author

    THANK YOU for taking time to consider Doorknob's Life Purpose Books and coaching. During the last 30 years, the first ten as a private and public school teacher, and for the last twenty years as a business consultant and certified Life Coach, I have enjoyed many hours working with and coaching teens, collegiates and adults.

    When I was the Organization Development Consultant for Walt Disney World, Magic Kingdom, I would walk downstairs from my office onto Main Street to watch the children and their families enjoy the afternoon 3 o’clock parade. I knew my work at Disney was helping to bring success as I saw the wonder and excitement on their faces. Some little ones were raised high on their dad’s shoulders, others standing with their family just to get a better view of the magical parade that passed before them. I also knew that living a life we are really passionate about would bring that kind of happiness and satisfaction every day into each of our lives.

    The trick was taking the wonder and fun of exploring this magical world of “being ourselves” into the practical real world of our lives. That is what the DOORKNOB discovery books, Leader's Guides and coaching are all about!

    The first book published was written for teens between the ages of 11-21. These are critically important years in life and many life path decisions are made during this time.

    This book, Your Key Your Door,(YKYD) is a step-by-step discovery guide that asks powerful questions that aid students in self-discovery and building habits that put youth on the path that is right for them, both in career choices and their personal lives. Principals report that students learn information in school, and using the YKYD book students learn what to do with this information in a way that fits “who they are” which transforms that information into knowledge useful for building a fulfilling life.

    10 Easy Keys to Unlocking KidsPassion and Purpose book for adults gives parents and teachers some simple techniques to connect deeply with children ages 4-21 by observing and asking simple questions that reveal the child’s true nature, making parenting or teaching so easy and successful.

    Over the years of teaching, consulting and life coaching I have been gaining the experience necessary to write this series of books. It is the culmination of my experience that allows me to blend the techniques of success in my life and profession that creates the unique Doorknob methodology for success. These books are designed for all stages of life from children to adults.

    What is Life Coaching?

    Professional Coaches provide an ongoing partnership where you and your coach together choose the focus, format and desired outcomes to help you produce satisfying and fulfilling results in your personal/professional life. Your skills are strengthened to get what you want, faster and easier. Originating in sports coaching, life coaching includes principles such as teamwork; going for the goal; and mastery at consistently being your best with increasing well-being.

    Thank you Teri, for your time and incredible support at my coaching session. You had just the perfect balance of listening to my concerns, and sharing your thoughts about how to get on top of the worries and confusion that had me pretty down and discouraged. Some of the things you taught me just yesterday have already had a tremendous impact on my state of being. Thank you so much, and I'm eager to see where this journey with you will take me.

    Kathy

    Teri is fantastic! I am a recent college graduate and I have been stressed with my career choice, dating, and personal relationships. I hated the way my life was going and working with Teri has helped me get my life moving in the direction. She helps to hold me accountable for those things that I tend to put off. She is motivating, encouraging, and helps to keep me moving along in a timely manner. Teri has shown me how to determine the difference in what is important now and what can wait until I have the time. She has truly shown me what it means to “go for it” and “take a risk.

    L.M. college graduate

    Recently our family was blessed with the opportunity to personally work with Teri Haggerty, author of Your Key, Your Door. We all came up with unique and individualized life purpose statements. As a mother, having the opportunity to do this was especially beneficial. I wanted to set the example for my kids and help them see their personal strengths and interests. During the process, I realized some things about myself that had sort of gotten lost in the last decade or so. Beginning this process has reiterated to me that helping kids realize what is personally important to them and incorporating those things into a life purpose statement is incredibly important! My kids now have a personal road map to help guide them as they grow into adults!
