PJ Alford Life Skills Academy is an education company founded in January 2019. It's products focus on Personal Development and Lifelong Learning. 

"We create the world we live in and if we want a better world we must start by CHANGING what we don't like about it." ... Sharron Gannon

"I  didn't  like that there is no formal life skills education in the United States. The most important things we need to know to survive and  aren't  taught anywhere. We have to rely on our parents relatives and friends to teach us everything and then we have to trust that they know what they're talking about. There is so much that we need to know and it is impossible for one person to know everything, so what happens when you run into things that your family didn't teach you and what about the people who didn't grow up in families who thought about things like this? They're thrown out into the world with no clue how it works. They're left alone in the dark without a flashlight


 I created this school to change that.  PJ Alford Life Skills Academy is a central location for life skills education online. A place to go and  learn all of the practical things you need to know to survive. Things like how to buy a new home for the first time Step by Step, and how to Negotiate Like A Boss.  How to get the best deals on groceries, and how to grow your own food. Real Directions and lessons taught by people who have been there done that and got the     T-Shirt!


PJ Alford Life Skills Academy is the NEW Online Life Skills Resource Center Teaching Everything They Don't Teach In School!


We will be formally opening our virtual doors on November 1, 2019.  We Need YOU to create those courses to make this possible!

Have no idea what creating an online course is all about?
