Are you a College-Bound Parent?

Many parents know the importance of a college education, but either went to college many years ago or did not go at all. They are struggling to guide their child through the process because they themselves have to become familiar with it. In many families, that leaves the student to navigate the process for both themselves and their parent(s). Parents are having a difficult time knowing where to begin.

Planning For Life After High School?

The college admissions process can seem overwhelming. However, it doesn’t have to be intimidating if you have a strategic plan. My college readiness workbooks will allow you to design a strategy for college acceptance specific to what you want your college experience to be. I will challenge you to take a good look at yourself and where you stand in reference to the requirements for your top college choices. My workbooks are designed to equip you to become a successful college student by exposing you to major concepts in college readiness and acceptance, college life, and career planning.

Not Planning To Go To College?

The traditional college journey is not for every student. Some may elect to join the military or enter the workforce by pursuing a trade. The guidance I give to all students is that you will need to acquire some type of education or training beyond high school to be successful. Technical programs, apprenticeship programs, and specialized trainings can go a long way for your financial future. While in admissions, I've assisted students enter technical and career programs that created a salary that exceeded my own. You don't have to follow the traditional route, but you do have to have a plan. 

Don't Have The Same Support As Others?

The two concepts I want you to focus on are accountability and self-advocacy. As of today, you have to be accountable for your actions and the trajectory of your future. I have worked with students from all types of backgrounds, and I have learned that the those who take on their responsibilities and advocate for themselves are the ones that you cannot stop. They will be successful by sheer willpower. That can be you. There is no substitute for hard work!

Quick Tips From Brannon

Your success, in school and in life, is directly related to your effort. It's not your parent's, coaches, teachers, or counselor's responsibility to ensure that you are successful.

Research and self-advocacy skills are the two most important skills for you to develop and master on this high school to college journey. 

The worst thing you can do is nothing. Always take responsibility, be accountable, and make a decision. Indecisiveness leads to missed opportunities and becoming a flat squirrel. 

Your attitude and reputation can take you places your abilities alone can't. When decision-makers are discussing potential opportunities, what are they saying about you?  

Excuses are tools of the incompetent and are used to build monuments of nothingness. Those who specialize in them never succeed.

High school is just the beginning. There's a whole world of new experiences waiting for you and college will be the best time of your life. 

Colleges are institutions of higher learning. You will not only learn academically, but you will also learn so much about yourself. Education doesn't only occur when you're in a classroom.

You will learn that your network is your net worth. Take the time to nurture them both for a successful future.
