We see you! The world needs you!

Find out how your uniqueness is your best asset!

Fully funded coaching for differently-abled youth.


You were


The world might have told you were too much, too different, too anything. But we want you to not only HEAR that you are perfect just the way you are, but the world is desperately screaming. out for fiercely empowered young people just like you.   

The world has taught you to conform, but the world and everyone in it needs different thinking and ways of being and doing. That’s where you come in. The quirky, the unique, the differently-abled, the out-of-the-box rebels, are the ones that will change the world.

Ideation for Youth Nation was set up by two old freaks, Jacqui O’Connor and Michelle Clarke who were consistently told they were too much, too weird, too out there, too something, and struggled needlessly with their own physical and mental health journeys.  “Our purpose is to empower you with the tools, mindset, support, and resources you need to get out there and fly your freak flag while getting on with changing the world, because together we shall rise”

The world desperately needs you and your different way of viewing the world, but most of what is out there does not cater to us unique ones…

This 2-day Healing and Future Career/Business Retreat will show you just how great you have always been and how to lean into that and make it work for you while you get on with shaping, changing and saving the world.


Who are these two crazy ladies?

  • Jacqui is a registered nurse with qualifications in health psychology and whole health medicine with 26 years experience in psychosocial nursing and teen management as a school nurse.
  • Michelle is an internationally registered coach and a qualified teacher, with training in supporting differently abled children with 15 years of experience in supporting teens and young adults in education and 26 years of business experience.
  • Both Michelle and Jacqui have their own super powered teens, and were (still are) quirky non conforming differently abled kids who now run their own successful business by embracing their uniqueness and want to show others how to do that too – minus all the years of anxiety.
  • Jacqui and Michelle are both highly intuitive empaths who get to ride the wave of feeling everything intensely all the time and have found ways to not only cope with this, but turn it into a super power – and want to show teens how to do that too.
