Thousands of hours being schooled and you’re STILL left without a roadmap

Between kindergarten and high school graduation, the average student is subject to 15,000 hours in the classroom; 24,041 hours of various forms of network programming.

Only to find themselves dropped into a world with no map and no compass.

We have been subjected to a system that instills a sense of learned helplessness and appeal to authority.

Compulsory schooling does not prepare today’s adults to survive and thrive in the world – not without giving up their essential freedoms and morals.

This is because the public education system is a breeding ground for state propaganda and indoctrination… and this is no accident. It’s by design.

Every day, you are being sent into battle with no sword and no shield

Those in control don’t want you to think for yourself. They’ve intentionally blocked you from learning to think critically. It’s as though you were programmed to be docile and obedient, instead of being your most successful self… go figure!

From one moment to the next, we are being bombarded with propaganda, disinformation, misinformation, and outright lies from mainstream media, government, and corporations who want to take our freedoms away.

Building a life independent of tyranny and battling misinformation means being able to see through the muck quickly, efficiently, and effectively — something that traditional schooling has left us all sorely lacking.

Continued awakening requires continuous learning

Reality: There isn’t a school on the planet that will teach you what it takes to be Autonomous.

People are seeking meaning, substance, and competence. Unfortunately, this is not provided by the current system of schooling, university, and employment.

When blocked from their goals, people become frustrated and aggressive, making them perfect customers for either medication or incarceration.

Mainstream media, public schools, and universities don’t prepare us to understand how the world works in reality. It simply locks you into the standard of trading time for money, with no guarantee that you are going to have what you need to survive and thrive in today’s world.

Freedom itself is being extinguished around the world

As most of the world continues down a path towards less freedom and more chaos, it’s essential that we support each other on our quests for personal liberation. We need to help each other actualize our true potential.

Self-reliance and free trade depend on educating individuals in the exact areas of knowledge that were removed from American education to create 20th-century schooling…


FACT: 87% of Employees are unhappy with their jobs. – Forbes

Unlike traditional universities, AUTONOMY has a success assurance team and multiple layers of structure to ensure that you can actually leverage what you learn and catalyze your potential in life.

Definition of Autonomy: “Liberty to follow one’s will, personal freedom.” – Oxford English Dictionary, definition 1b

Fortify Your Intellectual Self Defense

Learn how to learn anything while gaining powerful discernment and critical thinking skills

Overcome the Scarcity Mindset

Exchange self-limiting beliefs for a mindset of growth and abundance, setting you up for success

See Time As Your Greatest Asset

With powerful productivity systems, you’ll get more done in a day than you used to do in a week

Know When You are Being Lied To

Become your own bullshit detector, spin decryptor, and best authority on what’s going on around you

Speak Clearly and Be Listened To

Know how to draw well thought out conclusions, present them in front of others, and be taken seriously

Listen and Provide Immense Value

Actively listen to others with empathy while helping them solve problems creatively and collaboratively

Leverage Entrepreneurship Skills

Pay for your desired lifestyle by creating and owning assets that deliver recurring, consistent revenue

Craft Compelling Offers

Know how to communicate value and present an offer (AKA = how to turn words into money)

Be The Captain Of Your Own Ship

Exit the rat race and actualize new levels of self-reliance, peace of mind, and cognitive liberty

All while being part of a thriving community of freedom-seekers across the world!

Richard Grove sees Freedom as being composed of three primary ingredients: Non-Aggression, Physical Self-Defense, and Intellectual Self-Defense.

Richard’s unique background as a 2004 corporate whistleblower (under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act) who successfully represented himself in court has enabled him to effectively educate and inform those who seek to understand how our world really works.

While working through college to earn his business degree, Richard invested $5000 into a franchise opportunity where he was mentored in entrepreneurship skills.

Upon graduation, Richard took his entrepreneurship skills to market, and working for various silicon valley high tech companies, Richard leveraged his investment in himself and used the skills he learned to earn over one million dollars by age 30.

Since then, he has dedicated his time and invested his efforts to collecting evidence and exposing this ongoing corruption — and in turn, creating and developing solutions to provide individuals with Cognitive Liberty.

He had to start from scratch and build the map himself… Now, he’s providing that map to you.

Concerns of Students

Before They Were Students

How can I trust myself to realize the benefits?

This course teaches you to know thyself, to consistently practice integrity, and to trust yourself to benefit. Autonomy helps students emancipate themselves from limiting beliefs ingrained through 15,000 hours of public schooling. You will learn elements of self-knowledge which enables you to make a plan for getting from point A to point B with consistency, structure, and motivation. Learn how to break through the excuses, get past perceived limitations, overcome obstacles, and scale up your life.

It costs a lot of money, how can I be sure it’s worth it?

I’ve designed this course to deliver tangible value to your life within a short period of time (in fact, the principles taught can be put into practice immediately). I don’t believe students should be asked to make an investment which doesn’t have the potential to pay for itself. When the skills taught in this course are put into practice, Autonomy becomes an asset (that which puts money into your pocket). After internalizing the curriculum and practicing the exercises, you’ll understand how to offer your value and transact in the world, which liberates you from a scarcity mindset (worried about where money is going to come from). The breakthroughs students achieve throughout the course propel them to stop making excuses and start finding solutions.

I want to take the course but I don’t know how to get the funding

Sourcing funds for this course will require a degree of self-discipline on your part to make a plan of action and then follow through with it. In order to do that, you must confront your scarcity mindset (the idea that money, employment, opportunities, etc are in short supply) and be willing to invest your time and resources instead of simply spending them. Investing time means focusing on that which teaches you everyday skills, high value skills, skills to pay the bills – skills which allow you to attain and maintain freedom. (That’s what we teach in Autonomy). Spending time means letting opportunities pass you by and continuing to focus on that which drains time & money away without a plan to pay for itself. You can start by evaluating how much of your resources are currently being drained by liabilities, and redirecting them toward that which will provide lasting value.

I have immediate financial obligations and can’t add more

This course is designed to teach you various methods of making it pay for itself. Autonomy is an asset, which enables you to put money into your pocket. If you don’t take this step, you’ll be left with the status quo method of meeting your obligations, which has resulted in the current obstacle(s) plaguing your life. Your current approach is already cutting off your opportunities to grow and if this problem is not solved, the issues will only become worse. Do you have a plan to triage and heal this wound before it festers uncontrollably? Outgrow the status quo by:

  • Learning to prioritize your time/attention/energy
  • Learn the methodology of taking your offer to market
  • Learn which high-value skillsets are in demand
  • Learn how to meet your needs in a self-reliant way

Learn your way forward and grow in the light direction!

How can I spend more time & attention on something when I’m stretched thin now?

Autonomy will help you distinguish between spending your time and investing your time. To get the most out of the course, students should be prepared to invest about 5-10 hours per week, which could be spread out in a number of ways. Students often begin to build momentum and receive such value within just a few weeks of participation, they find they’re able to begin eliminating lesser uses of their time and dedicate more time to applying the skills being taught. You will learn ways to manage your time, get things done productively, overcome obstacles, and build better habits through self discipline so you can focus on your goals and move forward.

I haven’t figured out yet what I’m doing in life; is there a way to find out?

You don’t need to have all the answers to begin this course. In fact, you’ll be in good company if you don’t. In some cases, it’s better to have no idea than to pursue an unrealistic idea. The key is knowing where and how to find the answers you need. This course helps you to realize your full potential by teaching elements of self-knowledge as well as discovering your inclinations and applying them to high value skill sets. You’ll learn to incorporate productive habits through self-discipline, which allows you to put together a strong plan to get you where you want to go in life. Additionally, the Autonomy community is full of inspiring minds ready to spark your thinking about how to creatively implement your energy.

I feel guilty about monetizing my passion/hobby

You may feel that you owe the world your product or service without charge, and that is likely because you are a genuine, caring person who is trying to make the world a better place. As students progress through the course, they start to realize that this hang-up has been intentionally introduced to keep individuals from challenging the status quo and bringing new ideas into the world. Begin by simply recognizing that this self-limiting attitude does not bring you (and ultimately the world) value but rather prevents you from growing and becoming self-reliant. Once this dynamic is re-framed, students realize that monetizing passion actually revolves around delivering massive value to those you’re serving, and it won’t feel cringeworthy to make your offer. Indeed, it will be quite the opposite.

Won’t things get better if I just…wait/hope/work harder/fill in blank

Self-reliance begins with the understanding that things will not get better without you taking some meaningful and consistent action. Buckminster Fuller once wrote, “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” They/Them/Those who are writing the script of the future are not writing you into it. You’ve got to take action and write the script for your own life. This course is not for those who are sedentary and just hoping that others will take the actions to resolve the erosion of personal liberty, individual freedom, privacy, entrepreneurship, and the amazing world economy which we now enjoy. Most people do not understand the technological structure of our society and don’t realize the reality of the future we face. Those people likely think “things will get better once (fill in the blank).” They won’t. Learning and implementing the skills taught in this course are vital to attaining, maintaining, and retaining individual freedom.

I’m looking for community but is it authentic/valuable if I have to pay for it?

The self-knowledge and high-value skills which result from this course rely heavily on the community in which they are forged. Skills must be practiced, offers made, solutions sought, and it is within the Autonomy community, distinguished by a culture of excellence unlike any other, that you will find yourself in an atmosphere which propels you forward. Fellow Autonomy students and graduates are instrumental in motivating, encouraging, supporting, and providing accountability. Here, you can build a diverse network of people looking to provide value and expand personal freedom. The Autonomy community is one of the least-advertised yet most valuable aspects of the course.

I don’t know how to communicate well or work with others

It’s a given that most folks have poor communication skills; it’s one of the most common self-limitations that Autonomy consistently helps students overcome. This problem is rapidly addressed within the first few weeks, and through the use of integration exercises, students quickly begin to outgrow such barriers and learn to thrive. This is a long-lasting, life-changing transformation and it begins with just a few simple, easy exercises getting to know fellow students and make connections in a meaningful, substantial way.

I’m worried about adding additional stress to my family/relationships

The reality is that there is already stress on today’s family. What causes relational stress? People being out of integrity, people assuming instead of asking, absence of planning and organization, ambiguities which stoke the fear of unknowns. Under life’s pressures, many don’t survive marriage for more than a few years. But what if spouses and families could be on the same page about important topics? What if everyone had a method for managing their time, validating the contents of their minds and their communications, resolving disputes and being able to identify when someone is trying to deceive them? The potential for the family would be IGNITED! Vision focused, goals in frame, actions synchronized in motion, together. That’s a stress-free environment, and that’s just part of what Autonomy offers.

Do you teach competency in any specific software or applications to serve the entrepreneurial goals of your students and clients?

Great question. We show our tech stack to our students and encourage them to use what is working for their own purposes. We support content and course creation, and like in the case of Benny Wills, we helped him to build a course that is now supporting his family. We also have other active media, copywriting, and communications/sales groups that share resources and help each other build skills. Additionally, Autonomy Unlimited is a marketing agency that has an internship program where you can cut your teeth on various projects.

The Elephant in the Room:


Fear. The darkness of the unknown or yet-to-be-seen. You might be thinking that this is too big of a challenge to undertake, that you might not be disciplined enough to prioritize time in your calendar to integrate the useful knowledge and wisdom encapsulated in this course.

But what if you CAN muster that discipline and integrate this knowledge into your skillset, allowing your potential to blossom? If you can do that, you can overcome your fear with planning, learning, and growing in the light direction.

You wouldn’t have read this far if you weren’t interested in leveling up your life.

So you have 3 options:

1) You can give up your dream of being autonomous

2) You can invest the same work on your own, without a map, over years and years

3) You can invest in the AUTONOMY course (and yourself) and leverage the benefit of the knowledge transfer

What sounds more reasonable?

The AUTONOMY methodology and nonlinear curriculum deliver consistent results. If you integrate the method it will work for you and it never runs out of batteries.

Instead of wandering aimlessly, hoping to find what you’re looking for, let AUTONOMY provide you with a compass, map, and community so you can actively get to where you want to be.
