Life in Focus

Following their passions has always been the Alsops' approach, even if it means carving their own path.

Life in Focus - AlsopKatelyn James and Michael Alsop were typical high school sweethearts. But that’s about all that’s typical about them. With their family, careers and church, they refuse to cave to mediocrity or mainstream notions. Instead, they brainstorm and take risks to improve old norms or develop new ones. Perhaps that’s why Katelyn’s online photography school peaked at 40,000 worldwide users, and Michael’s youth academy encourages “learners” to take responsibility for their own education. Discover how these young entrepreneurs apply their passions and talents—as well as their funds—to fulfill their life’s purpose and live their faith.
