About Focus Up
Our Mission Statement is “Focus On Three, Success Guaranteed”. By upholding the three tenants of Education, Perseverance, and Soft Skills we will succeed in our mission. Our mission at Focus Up is to provide the highest quality of educational resources by current successful professionals and mentoring to those that wish to change the path they feel they are on in life so that they have the greatest chance to succeed. Our goal is to see a consistent decrease in the number of young people staying in impoverished situations as they enter adulthood.
How We Got Started
Focus Up was founded in 2022. A group of successful professionals that wanted to make a difference decided to stop thinking and talking about making a difference and instead put their education and real-world training into a company that focused on accomplishing those thoughts. Stephen Slappey (founder) stepped away from his two award-winning marketing firms because he saw an issue that a lot of people cared about but not enough people were willing to take action on.
