In these unique times, the stakes are higher than ever for college students. This time away from campus can lead to success or failure.
This is why right now is so important to ensure your kid stays on the right track.
To help students come out on top of this, here are 5 critical lessons (some that I share in my book 50 Things Every College Student Should Know) that will set your child up for success now and when they return to campus.
#1 CONNECT WITH ALLIES
#2 YOU DON’T CLIMB A MOUNTAIN BY ACCIDENT
#3 REGULARLY FIND THE EDGE
“If you’re not close enough to the edge, then you’re taking up too much space.”
#4 BUILD A PERSONAL BRAND NOW
Open up a private web browser and Google your kid’s name.
The good news is that your kid can control search results by building a strong personal brand. Right now is the perfect time to do this.
#5 CHOOSE EXCITEMENT OVER FEAR
Life can be an amazing journey with some days better than others.
This small but important shift will allow them to focus on the many opportunities ahead of them after the pandemic instead of a laundry list of problems.
