We go through life checking the boxes of what it means to be “successful” only to find the things we were “supposed to do” don’t actually matter that much.  Jake and Cole have been there.  They sought out resources to understand and improve in every area.  But personal development forgets one critical factor: we don’t only have ourselves to think about.  We have to factor in the one thing that matters most – family.

The funny thing is that the concepts of personal development exist in the context of marriage and child development, but they have different names.  So let’s cut through the syntax and look at how the best of us is available now.

Experts including psychologists, occupational therapists, educators, and more share how these concepts can be used to bring out the best in us all.  In addition to the expertise of Jake and Cole in the areas of physical wellness and nutrition, they share experience and hard-earned lessons they have learned navigating personal wellness, marriage, and family life.


The Villeau mission is to help bring families into the complete fullness life has to offer – capable and reaching their potential.  We start with personal development that can then be translated into happier and healthier marriages and more connected families.  By building a community of people ready to experience a fulfilling family life, the entire community can go into the world with purpose and intention as their authentic selves.
