"I wish someone would have told us sooner about... that would have saved us so much time, stress and money." All-too-often we hear this from parents whose children are now in college or who have finished college and are not too happy.
"We really thought the Middle and High Schools were responsible to help our kids - but now we see that these schools don't have any skin-in-the-game... Had someone shown us how to do it - our kids would be in a better place today." Most parents want to help their children prepare for college - just that no one has shown them how to actually do it. We show you how to effectively and making this process fun, meaningful and result in a great value.
In the course we will cover in depth:
Starting with Purpose: "Starting with the End in Mind"
The Course Load: Between Boredom and Fascination
Finding the Best-Fit College: Not necessarily your "Favorite" College
Developing a Strong Student Resume: Becoming an Interesting Person
In addition, we have created for you 21 worksheets to help you and your children have mutual ownership.
