Here’s What You Do Now That Christmas Is Over [Next Steps]…

A lot of people have the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day off and, in an effort to make the most out of the time, they plan to mark some college prep items off of their list.  Usually, I am uber-excited when people are in action.  However, there is one thing that I would suggest you not do that you not do over winter break. If you made plans to do this already, cancel, because it’s that important.
The thing that I recommend that you skip over winter break is taking a college tour. During winter break, almost everyone’s gone from campus and that won’t really give you or your child a good strong sense of what’s what. When you take a college tour you want to make sure that you and your child are getting a realistic view of what that college will be like during the academic year.   Most campuses are ghost towns right now so skip the college tour.

In the time between Christmas and New Year’s Day, many people start to seriously plan for the upcoming year.  If you have a child in middle school and/or high school, it’s time for you to look beyond the next 365 days, you must get on the fast track to plan for your child’s future.
Unfortunately, most parents don’t know where to begin.  Well, you’re in luck. I have a program that will set you in the right direction and give you the much needed guidance to help your child succeed.
 

Introducing – The College Savvy Mom Masterclass

In this four week program, I will guide a group of mothers through the fundamentals of planning for college.
Is this group right for you?  Answer the following questions:
  • Do you have a child in grades 6 – 10?
  • Are you worried  about your child’s success?
  • Are you interested in positioning your child for admission to a top-tier college?
  • Do you lack the time, but not the desire to help your child elevate to the next level?
  • Are you suffering from “comparison fatigue”?
If you answered “yes” to at least two of the questions above, KEEP READING!
During the four week program, moms will learn the “4Cs” that will help you take charge of this sometimes overwhelming and frustrating process.
You will learn how to:
  • Week 1 (Monday, January 9) – Connect with important school personnel
  • Week 2 (Monday, January 16) – Collaborate on your child’s comprehensive academic profile
  • Week 3 (Monday, January 23)- Coach your child on how to interact with important stakeholders and manage their online and offline reputation
  • Week 4 (Monday, January 30)- Craft a college prep plan that includes scheduling important tasks

This class combines live weekly online lessons, emailed action items and a private Facebook community to take away the guesswork of how to prepare your child for college.

This amazing opportunity is a $897 value that you can receive for only $197.  This class will not be offered at this price ever again. Spaces are limited – act now before the cart closes!

I’m Changing Everything

I’m Ready to Punch Fear in the Face

As you know, I have been The College Savvy Coach for the last several years. I love helping parents get their students to and through college.
In light of recent events, I’ve taken a personal and professional inventory and decided that it is time for a transition.  It’s time for me to make a bold move.  I am pivoting my business by helping families in a way that make my services much more attainable.I’m pushing fear aside to announce that I’ve partnered with a mobile app developer and together we have created College Bound Parenting.  What I love about this collaboration is that it involves more than a handy college prep tool; it symbolizes a movement.  Our mission is to educate parents about the college admissions process in a way that empowers families, informs decision-making and provides a forum for collective knowledge and resources.  In other words, College Bound Parenting provides an opportunity for us to lift each other up and also provides a vehicle to propel us all forward.

If you are the parent of a college bound middle school or high school student, the new mobile app, College Bound Parenting, is a “must-have”!

College Bound Parenting App Features:

  • College Prep Reminders and Push Notifications
  • College Planning Checklist
  • Podcast Series
    • Hosted by Sia Knight, The College Savvy Coach
  • Community Chat
  • Scholarship Search
  • Pre-College / Summer Programs
  • Test Prep Resources
  • College Search

When a parent downloads our app, s/he also gets access to a private Facebook community, monthly conference calls and the collective wisdom of the entire College Bound Parenting community.  What I love most of all is that, at $4.99, this mobile app is an affordable alternative to the private coaching that I provide as The College Savvy Coach.

“Sia, this sounds great!  What can I do to help?”  I’m glad you asked.☺   I only need you to do two things:

1. Download the College Bound Parenting app (Available in iTunes and in the Google Play Store. Thank you for your support!) and

2. Go to the bottom right-hand corner of the app’s Home Screen and click Share App.  From there you can share it via Facebook, Twitter, Messenger or e-mail. Instead of choosing from these platforms, how about sharing the app with all of them?
