I believe your child has the potential to achieve his dreams. I do things differently with that end result in mind, leaving nothing on the table. I do this by teaching parents the step by step system I used to get my kids into their 1st choice colleges with over $100,000 in scholarships.
“People don’t buy what you do, they buy why your do it!”-Simon Sinek.
The same is true for your teen with regard to his/her getting scholarships, getting into college, and getting a job. WHY do you want to go to that college? WHY are you the best candidate for that scholarship. WHY do you want that job? Certainly there’s a financial component. But as Simon describes in his TED talk, the money is the result, not the direct motivation. The true motivation is deeper than that. Otherwise, if it were all about the money the rate of success would be smaller.
Why do you volunteer at THAT charity? Why do you work for that store? Why did you choose those electives? The more you search your heart for your WHY, the easier writing college and scholarship applications will be.
Find your WHY.
