    Creating the Foundation for College Success

    Creating the Foundation for College Success

    Working from a personalized college list forms the foundation from which everything happens proactively!

    If I ask 100 parents-

    Which do you prefer, being proactive or reactive? 

    Of course, all 100 will respond the same—PROACTIVE.

    And yet when it comes to college for their children, few parents will work it proactively while the vast majority- over 80%, will be reactive in their approach.

    This happens predictably for one primary reason- 
    parents proceed through the process without working from a formalized college list, one that specifically matches colleges to a student's qualifications and interests along with the parent's interests and needs.

    Therefore, our 
    Power Principle # 2-

    The Foundation- Getting college right begins with working from a personalized college list.

    You can't be throwing-darts-in-the-dark any longer, reacting to everyone else's ideas for your college. Rather, you must work from a college list, targeting your marketing and visitation efforts towards the colleges that meet your child's qualifications and interests along with your interests and needs ($'s). This  puts you on the-

    • right colleges
    • meeting the right people
    • asking the right questions

    It puts you in control!

    Do you want to be proactive and in control? Let's talk!

    Owning the Power Position

    Owning the Power Position

    Colleges own the Power-Position. It is up to us to regain it for putting the power where it belongs...with us!

    There are 5 specific, definable, unmistakable, Power Principles for getting college right. In this 5-part series, we will share and closely analyze each of these with you.

    Power Principle # 1

    The Mindset- You must be willing to do things that others are not willing to do.

    This is the differentiating factor in all families with both the parents and kids. Families that are willing to take action that other families are not willing to do create huge advantages for admission acceptances, scholarships, internships, and ultimately jobs!

    Here are a few examples, you must be willing to-

    • take college trips early-on during H.S.
    • contact and connect with college decision-makers
    • extend college visits for meeting the key people
    • become more knowledgeable of the process
    • build upon credentials, do something extraordinary
    • hold yourself/ child accountable for performance

    You must be willing to differentiate yourself from the others. The right people will take notice!!!

    The #1 Secret to Success of a Young Adult

    The #1 Secret to Success of a Young Adult

    The secret to the success of a young adult is learning the difference between what they want NOW versus what they want MOST!

    Right here lies the very essence of our work...it hits at the core of every child's likelihood for young life success. People are living in constant pursuit of satisfying the "now" moment with little thought given to its ramifications on goals and ambitions, those things wanted "most".

    This directly leads to compromising a child's or family's longer-term goals or initiatives. The bigger picture becomes blurred in favor of immediate gratification. I'm not saying that we can't enjoy our life and indulge in fun, entertainment, and pleasure, because certainly we can and we need to! Believe me, I enjoy a bowl of ice cream as much as anyone. But I don't do it to the extent of compromising my overall good health and competitive spirit, which is something that I want most to maintain.

    In working with families, I always begin by asking the child- "
    What 3 things do you want most in your life."

    Their response is the key to unlocking and sharing their deep inner-core beliefs and feelings...a rare thing for them to do. This does two unbelievably great things-

    1) It allows them access to their own inner feelings, which
     most often remains elusive otherwise. 

    2) It gives me critical insight for knowing how to proceed ahead with them to ensure their desired outcomes.

    Why is this so important? 

    It serves to add a conscious awareness and attention to a person's difference between what they want now versus what they want most. Now we can let them have their fun, but not at the expense of future goals and ambitions. Therein lies the secret to success in a young adult! By the way, it applies to all of us, ha!!!

    Essays- The Difference Between Very Good and Great

    Essays- The Difference Between Very Good and Great

    Acceptances are often secured with a very good or great essay. Denials are easily reached with poor essays.
    When it comes to college application essays, very good essays are by far the exception, whereas mediocre, boring, and meaningless essays make up the vast majority.

    Very good essays have 6 things in common, they...
    1. Have a Title capturing a reader's interest
    2. Begin with a date and point of time-reference
    3. Begin with a personal story
    4. Relate significant meaning of the writer
    5. Flow well to the conclusion
    6. Are written with a flair for vivid description
    "Very good" is the minimum standard for my student's essays, while "great" is the expectation. The inside secret for making a college application essay "great" is for it to have a "timeless" message of the writer embedded into its meaning. This is a message of the writer that will last for the writer in its meaning for many years to come. That's what makes essays great!

    5 Biggest Admissions & Application Mistakes

    5 Biggest Admissions & Application Mistakes

     

    Common mistakes made by student-families lead to predictable results.

    Year after year students completing their Junior year fall upon the college admission and application process unprepared and seemingly without concern as they plan ahead for summer.

    But there should be plenty of concern as they step upon the front porch of College Admissions with acceptances, scholarships,  family-finance and young lives at stake...all too easily put to risk and left to chance by unsuspecting families.

    Here are the 
    Top 5 Most Common Mistakes made by student-families during the Admissions Process-
    1. Students remain a Stealth Applicant, unknown to the people making the decisions
    2. Their Essay, lacking interest and genuine meaning, gets submitted without proper guidance or oversight
    3. The Common App is submitted with glaring holes of incomplete and obviously rushed information
    4. Applications are submitted late without a strategy for securing affordable, quality options
    5. Students hit the "Submit" button without a plan for constant and consistent follow-up and follow-through
    The predictable results...
    • Application denials and lost opportunity
    • Less scholarships and broken finances
    • Upset children and family anxiety
    • Fewer options and wrong college choices
    Parents are not excluded from this. You can't defer this job onto your child or others. You will be the one to pay the college bill and have final responsibility for making the right choice. You need to be involved and you should know more about what you're about to buyCOLLEGE. Your child's college outcome reflects upon your preparation, or lack thereof.

    We've made it easy for you to be well-prepared...no excuses!

    College Prep Portal designed to help you better navigate the college process for winning admissions. To get your free portal, click & submit our brief questionnaire.
