WHAT DO YOU NEED HELP WITH TODAY?
THE COLLEGE REPORT CARD IS FAR FROM A 4.0 GPA
When you signed up to go to college, you signed up to cash in on a promise, a promise that your investment of time, effort and money would lead to a degree that would change your trajectory, provide a measure of security and put you on the path to meaningful work.
For many students just like you, the reality is much different!
Examining theories and concepts in your area of focus is one thing. Figuring out how to parlay that into accessing the essential, valuable and practical info and tools necessary to transition smoothly into exciting, challenging, fulfilling and meaning work is a whole different story.
The college report card tells the real story, and it ain’t pretty!
A recent Gallup-Purdue University Study reported that when it comes to being engages at work and experiencing high well-being after graduation, college graduates report that the type of institution they attended matters less than what they experienced there. Yes, just 3% of all the graduates studied had the types of experience in college that Gallup finds strongly relate to great jobs and great lives afterward (Life in College Matters for Life After College).
THE FACT IS:
There are some serious potholes on the road from college to the workforce. Statistics suggest that the majority of the U. S. workforce are NOT truly satisfied with their work lives. And, many of the students who do graduate from college (after 5+years) leave with a heap of debt and scarce opportunities for work in their field of study.

The Crossroads of Should and Must: Find and Follow Your Passion, one of the easiest reads and most genuine examinations of the choices we make everyday, related to life and career, that I have ever read. In my humble opinion, it is one of the best books on these big topics. I place it among my top three books to read in 2017 and among my top twenty faves of all time in this category. It’s a simply written and beautiful what, why, how to, that holds your attention from the first to last page. GET IT, READ IT, APPLY IT, SHARE IT!
