        Having spent thousands of hours observing students and their families, I have found that the ones who have the most success are the ones who don't wait for the government or someone else to fix their lives. They are taking action for themselves.  For families learning to help themselves and  developing their personal education plans, below are some things they can do right now to get a better value from their college investment.
Here, two of Kathy's students, Jillian and Courtney, share their tips about making themselves more valuable to colleges (and employers.) 

(Please note: we had to film Jillian's quickly before she headed to college.  Hers are better viewed on a smaller screen.  Thanks for your tolerance of our imperfections and differences.)


Leveraging a college's marketing

       Reality is some parents care about the cost of college enough to do something early enough and some don't.  For those parents taking action, here are Kathy's suggestions for helping teens succeed in college and beyond.  Today's college is very expensive and requires a major investment.  It is important for teens not to waste the investment. What is your definition?  It's your money and your time.


Please remember that no person or organization can be all things to all people. 
Everyone is different.  People who can help themselves have a much better life. 
It is wise to have more than one resource.
