    College is a Debt-Fueled Business

    College is a Debt-Fueled Business

    Colleges will protect their business model with greater determination than parents will protect their finances.

    This is what you're up against when contemplating college ahead for your children, and it doesn't get enough attention. Well, does this get your attention?

    • College is a $500B industry, with $300B of it financed.
    • Federal Student Debt now exceeds $1.5 Trillion.
    • Parent's College Loans exceeds $4.0 Trillion. 
    • Dozens of Colleges have Endowment Funds > $1B.
    • Over 50 colleges now cost $70,000+ per year.

    You don't think colleges are worried about you and your finances, do you? Do they seem worried when you come for a visit? Are they quick and helpful in protecting your interests for saving college costs? Not for a second!

    College is a debt-fueled business and parents across America are rushing to contribute. But not our parents, we all know better than to be sucked up into the massive Business-Machine known as College. 

    There are many things you can do to save on college costs.  With a simple click, we have 8 Top Reasons People Overpay for College described for you.

    And if you like that, then you'll love our book-

    College Visits? Don't be like everyone else!

    College Visits? Don't be like everyone else!

    Don't just show up, take a tour, sit in an information session, then leave...

    That's what 95% of America does as they plan for college visits, thinking that they are suppose to take a tour, sit in an information session, then leave. They're playing checkers when college more resembles a game of chess.

    I'm not saying it's wrong to take a tour and sit in an information session, but I am saying that it's very bad and ineffective to then leave without meeting the key people.

    Meeting the key people means to meet-

    • An Admission Counselor
    • A Financial Aid Advisor
    • A person in your anticipated Dept. of Study
    • For athletes, the Head Coach

    Leaving the college without meeting these people will leave you scratching your head for answers...you get checkmated!

    The key to an effective college visit is to meet the key people and ask them the right questions...what questions are those?

    Must-Ask Questions making College Visits effective 

    These are just some of the ways we help families get college right. If you like it, then let's talk book an appointment now...Checkmate!

    "Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn."- John Maxwell

    I love that quote. Have you heard it before? It's very appropriate when it comes to college. In getting college right, you must know that the Admissions & Application season begins with the live launch of The Common App.

    If you know the process for submitting completed and timely applications, then you know that August is the month to get rolling. You would also know that complexities exist within applications that you can't ignore in hopes your child knows better...that would be a big mistake. However, it's a mistake you could learn from for your next child's college, ugh!
     
    Let's get to winning by learning now, not later.   

    Well-written and early submitted applications win higher acceptance rates and bigger scholarships. Why? Because it reflects in a serious intention of the student and importance to the student.

    Poorly-written and late submitted applications are not well received, typically resulting in quick denials and an important learning lesson...a costly lesson at that. 

     
    Why do student-families submit late applications? Because they are not due yet. After all, deadlines are still months away.
     
    Why do students submit poorly-written or incomplete applications? Because they get rushed.

    I ask you one question-
    Is having your child's application rushed and submitted just under the deadline an effective strategy for winning college acceptances and scholarships? 

    Our families win preferred acceptances and maximum scholarships by getting ahead early. You can too. If you would like to discuss how then
    book an appointment with me now. 

    We discuss these things and much more on our educational webinars. Join us on my next webinar coming up shortly.

    Why Parents Make the Same Mistakes Every Year

    Why Parents Make the Same Mistakes Every Year

    When it comes to college, parents make the same common mistakes as others every year costing them time, money, and opportunity.

    A parent was telling me his story this morning of how he handled his first two children with their college process. He was lamenting about college transfers, changes in majors, extended terms, and extra costs.

    He then stated the profound cause for it all-
    "I just kept thinking that all the college stuff would be taken care of by others. Not until my 3rd child did I realize that I had to be involved and on top of my game."  

    Parents, you can stand on the sideline of a ballgame cheering on your child, but when it comes to college, you can't stand on the sideline! Rather, you need to be involved. You must know more about what you're buying than you do!

    Just think, why do you have an inspection and appraisal done when buying a new home? Because you want to know better about what you're buying. Well then, why wouldn't you use the same approach in buying a college education? 

    You don't because you don't know how to, so you stand on the sidelines hoping it turns out ok. When it doesn't, you lament. Our parents don't stand on the sidelines hoping and lamenting. Rather, they have the tools to know better.

    In buying a house, the bank is your "oversight committee" making sure you know what you're buying without overpaying market price. In buying a college education, we are your oversight committee making sure you know what you're buying and without overpaying market price! 

    We discuss this and much more on our educational webinars. Join us on my next webinar coming up shortly.

    Arrogance vs Confidence, the difference?

    Arrogance vs Confidence, the difference?

    The difference between arrogance and confidence lies in the ability to embrace one's own vulnerability. 

    Arrogance lives and thrives on a superficial platform which does not acknowledge one's own vulnerability. Vulnerability is something that is feared and run from in arrogant people typically caused by a deepened lack of self-esteem. To the arrogant, vulnerability is a perceived weakness. 
     
    Confidence lives and thrives on a genuine and authentic platform which embraces one's own vulnerability. Vulnerability is a recognized sense found in confident people allowing one to proceed ahead in a calculated and cautionary manner. To the confident, vulnerability becomes a character strength. 
     
    I find it very interesting that vulnerability is a perceived weakness in many people and a character strength in others. 

    Ok, what does this have to do with college? Not much directly, however, I mentor young people to be confident, not arrogant. It's a big difference. Arrogance causes many problems at college, while confidence provides for college success...just a thought as kids get ready to head to college in a month or so.
