More about Trevor...
Hi! I’m Trevor Ragan,
I have the best job in the world.
My time is divided into three buckets:
1. Learning Reading is a great tool for learning, and I read a ton. However, I find that the best learning takes place during interaction with others and actual conversation. I often observe teachers and coaches, and hang try to hang out with as many researchers as I can.
2. Producing Content Writing the articles, producing the videos, and recording the podcasts is the toughest part of the job, but I love it. We focus on making it fun, useful, and easy to understand. I’m proud of how we model our content and I’m excited for it to evolve.
3. Facilitating Workshops Since 2014 I’ve delivered a few hundred workshops to people of all ages and all walks of life. I’ve worked in prisons, with MLB teams, Olympic teams, Fortune 500 Companies, and 200+ schools.
Workshops are my greatest strength. Each one makes me better and I’m beyond grateful to have so many awesome reps with a wide range of groups that allows me to do what I love.
There would be no website without my amazing mentors, teachers, and the incredible people who have shared their work with me along the way. It’s because of them that I’m able to do this.
I am so excited to keep learning together!
