If the statistics in the graphic below don’t scare you, PLEASE, go back and re-read them.
As of 2010, 56% of Americans have completed some or all of a college degree.
The common stigma has always been; Graduate high school, Go to college, Get a good job. It’s pretty obvious that message has been received.
With everyone blindly following the same advice, we as a country have created a surplus of over-educated Americans who have willingly put themselves in massive debt with the belief that college is the only way to achieve their individual dreams.
Instead of installing the notion that paying top dollar for higher education is the only sure-fire way to eventual success, we propose that exposing students to consider ALL options first is a much more effective way to getting them where they want to be.
Take a moment to consider the following questions:
- What will your degree really do for you?
- What is the total investment going to be for your education?
- Does the future vision align with the numbers it takes to get there?
- Is there an easier way to achieve success and happiness?
We know that there is an easier way to achieve success and happiness and we have the antidote to cure the symptoms that ail every student, in every walk of life. Stay tuned for our next post that is guaranteed to give you a new perception on the questions we proposed today.
