The 2020 Resolution ~ This Message Supersedes Ever Other Communications ~ Earn a Golden Ticket

Here is the List of 12 Current How-To's Available. I rated them for you so you can put together a strategy on what you want to tackle first. Some really are EASY, just need to take some time to go touch your vehicle and submit the pictures.   YOU GOT THIS!!
#1: Washing Your 4x4
Rating: EASY
#8: Differential Fluid
Rating: MEDIUM    (It's easier than an oil change...just scarrier lol)
#11:  Fuel Filter
Rating:  EASY!!!  (Not changing it, just tracking the system)
There is a little procrastinator in all of us....which means December is our favorite month to complete Resolutions 🙂  I will be working to get the rest of the How-To's we shot back in January up by the end of the year. I'll be cheering you on and you can cheer me on too!!

"How To Work on Your 4x4" Class will be available as a Bower Academy Class in April
You will get all of education and comrade with the class, but not the added benefits of the Resolution and the Giveaways that go with it. 

What is the Resolution?

Do you set New Year's Resolutions?  Yea, we do too...but how does that go? Are you focused on the task? Does someone hold you accountable? 

Each year Ladies Offroad Network will host a Resolution where we all work together to be successful. This year our focus will be on learning HOW-TO work on your 4x4 Vehicle!  You don't need to know how to turn a wrench, you just need to have the spirit to try and you will learn a ton along the way.  If you are not interested in learning How-To work on your vehicle, may I add that this is a great way to learn how to successfully and intelligently communicate to the mechanic that is working on your vehicle.  Knowledge is Power.

You will receive 20 How-To's over the course of 10 Weeks to complete. You don't have to do them all, but of course the goal is to do as many as possible! These How-To's will be hosted in our Bower Academy online course program where you will have written and video documentation.  Please note - these How-To's are not built to be bolt-by-bolt for your specific vehicle, but the concept of How-To do the maintenance. Information may be provided for your specific vehicle or you may have to do a little additional digging.

You will work with Ladies around the country and in your local area that are also participating in the Resolution. Within our online system (Wild Apricot) you will be chatting, encouraging and asking questions of those across the country. In another area, we will group you with the ladies in your region who you can actually get together with and do some of the activities together. It is always more fun to have a garage day and get greasy with another lady!!  This opportunity should also eliminate the challenge of not having a place to work on your vehicle or a large selection of tools. More than likely, you will be able to network with someone near you to help you be successful. Again, you just have to have the attitude to learn! 🙂

We talk in the REAL WORLD for us! 🙂 

For every How-To that you complete and post a picture of you doing it, as will be requested, you will go into a drawing for something BIG. We will have a series of large giveaways that you could win. This will be the encouragement to successfully complete the tasks.  IF you complete all 20 How-To's, you will go into a special drawing where 3 Ladies names will be drawn to win Free Entry to the 2020 Ladies Offroad Convention!! 

Register today!  Get excited and motivated as the New Year approaches. The first set of How-To's will be released on January 1, 2020!!

If you have ZERO Desire to work on your vehicle ~ Ok, I get it! Let me add another thought: If you are going to take your vehicle to a mechanic it would be beneficial to have the understanding of what they are talking about and what service they want to perform on your vehicle. By participating in this program you are able to gather the vocabulary and understanding of the service that should be performed.


What are the How-To's?

charlene bower academy resolutionI can't tell you exactly what the challenges are because that would spoil all the fun...but I can give you a brief list.  I will teach you how to do each of these tasks...  YES! You can do this!!

Tools Provided

2020-LON-PlannerYou will receive an exciting package in the mail with multiple items to help you be successful! Maybe the coolest item in the package will be your very own 2020 Ladies Offroad Network Planner Guide!  A 8"x8" booklet is full of Motivation, has room to focus on Goals and features the 2020 Schedule of Programs.

The How-To's will be set up as classes within our Bower Academy online school program. You will have access to them as they release and for as long as you are a member of Ladies Offroad Network. (Yes, you will get a How-To on using this program!)

You will utilize our Membership Wild Apricot online system where you will work together with other ladies who are also doing the challenge! This will be where you submit your work which will consist of simple pictures. (You can utilize this program on a desktop or as a phone app.  You do not need to be a member to participate. Yes, you will get a How-To on using it too!)

Q & A

charlene bower academy resolutionI don't have enough time?!  You have until November to complete all of these How-To's...and don't have to do them all, you need to do as many as you can! You will have a lot of time in comparison to what you have to do. They will trickle out to you throughout the first half of the year and then you have until the last day to post your picture. 😉   And Remember, you need to make some time for YOU to LEARN and GROW. 

I don't have an offroad vehicle?! That is ok!  You don't really need one except for maybe something to do with the 4x4 system. You will be in a online group where you can work with other ladies in your area who may be able to help you with that particular How-To.

I've never worked on my vehicle?!  Awesome! This is your chance. These How-To's are built to be understood by all. You are encouraged to try to complete them. They ARE NOT a turn-by-turn how-to being there are so many vehicles available.

I don't have any tools?!  Ok, You will need a series of tools to get you through the activities. This may be that little kick of an opportunity to build your tool kit too.  OR you have the option to create a relationship with other ladies in your area so that you can work together with someone who may have a great tool bag!

I have ZERO desire to work on my vehicle!  Ok, I get it! Let me add another thought: If you are only going to take your vehicle to a mechanic it would be beneficial to have the understanding of what they are talking about and what service they want to perform on your vehicle. By participating in this program you are able to gather the vocabulary and understanding of the service that should be performed.

I can't afford to participate?! We got you! There is a scholarship option for the enrollment portion. (Closed as of 1/10. Reach out to Charlene directly if you have a challenge.) There is no money involved in the rest of the challenge other than if you need to replace some parts during the maintenance service. You may also want to invest in some tools that help you be successful.

I can't do them all?!  Hmmm, first, you can will receive instructions on how to do each of them.  You are not expected to know how to do everything when starting. 
Life happens ~ do the best you can! I get it! Therefore, if you compete 3 of the 11, know that your name is going into the pot 3 times for the random drawing for the big gifts!  Do as many as you can...which is better than nothing.

I can't take any more time off?!  That is ok! You don't need to take any "time off work" to do any of the Resolution tasks. You should participate to do the resolution, the trip to the Convention at the end is a bonus.  
If you get into a position where you are joining the Convention weekend, you can either A. Make it happen 🙂 or B. Waive your opportunity to someone else. Not a big deal either way.  Don't not do the Resolution because of the possibility of the Convention weekend!
