In 2016, Phillip Porter and Dr. Janice Porter wrote and published their second book "The Power In A Vision Driven Family" along with their workbook "The Power In A Vision Driven Family Workbook".  Their books were so successful, they begin teaching family leadership, success, and wealth workshops throughout the United States. 

In 2020, during the Covid-19 Pandemic, they were forced to transition from doing in-person workshops to online webinars.  The webinars were so successful they had international students.  From this success, they launched the Global Family Success Institute (GFSI).  The Global Family Success Institute is a division of Generations Empowerment Enterprises, LLC.
