The time-lapse for change, what use to take 20 - 30 years, now occurs in a mere 2 - 3 years.
As 2020 lurks on the horizon, most people struggle to keep up with the times. Why so? Because change occurs much faster now than ever before. Trends, things, and our way of life can transition in many ways in a matter of a few years.
This means that if you don't stay up with the changing times, then you quickly fall behind. Brands, images, products, services, achievements can all get old or wear off in a matter of months. We awake each day to this ongoing reality!

Ponzi Schemes didn't end with exposing Bernie Madoff and College-scamming won't end this week either. The scammers are out there taking shortcuts. Side deals will be made. The work will be skipped. But in the end, they lose!
Not us, not my families with whom I work. I take it personally. They understand the game. They know that getting college right is a conscious effort, an arduous process where great work lands great results. I show the path, the parents manage the course, the kids do the work...this is how it's done right!
A thing about us. I am a big fan of Stephen Covey and his book- The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
We apply 3 Foundational Principles for getting college right.
