When I was just starting out, I remember feeling super overwhelmed.
Where do I start? How do I find scholarships? Where are the scholarships for me?
All of those questions raced through my mind while I blankly stared at the long scholarship search engine questionnaire on the computer screen.
I had little to no focus and was suffering from an extreme case of “senior-itis.”
The problem was people told me I would just magically get scholarships—to not worry— but I didn’t quite receive a full-ride to the school that I wanted to go to. And now, I was stuck trying to figure out how I would come up with the extra money.
I spent so many hours day dreaming about my dream school, but unfortunately didn’t spend as much time thinking about how I would pay for it. I didn’t have a lot of direction or clarity on how to find scholarships to make my dream school into a reality.
I caught myself laying in bed at night, hoping a fairy-godmother with scholarship knowledge would come down and present me with a scholarship in the exact amount that I needed to get into my dream school.
I would beg her, saying, “Please, please, please, tell me exactly what I should do, step-by-step, to win this scholarship money so I can go to this wonderful school and be on my way to an awesome career and life. I KNOW that this school is the right school for me and that I can do this.”
Looking at things now, my life feels so different.
Almost a decade of trial and error, many mistakes, missed scholarship deadlines, and an intense dedication to researching and taking action will have that effect.
Although I’m not perfect, I’m very grateful that I’ve been able to crack the code on how to turn my strengths, passions, and hobbies into scholarship dollars. And I’ve helped many families do the same.
So what does all of this have to do with you?
Since you were kind enough to let me know that you’re interested in learning how to graduate college debt-free, I wanted to let you know that I teamed up with an admissions expert and we are having a workshop (on May 18th) revealing all of our Super Scholarship Secrets.
I know there’s a lot of conflicting information on scholarships out there. I know how extremely overwhelming, frustrating, and confusing the scholarship world can be. That’s why I wanted to give you clear, simple steps that you can use immediately.
You can sign up for a spot in the Super Scholarship Secrets workshop here.
There are only 20 seats left, so you want to sign up before they’re all gone!
I’ve learned so much over the years and my hope is to help you shorten your learning curve.
I struggled with so much fear, discouragement, self-doubt, frustration, and confusion that it made me want to quit chasing my dream of attending college all together. I felt like time was rapidly running out. College was going to be starting any day and I remember that feeling of panic and of my stomach being tied in knots.
If you can relate to any of this, I want you to know that you don’t have to experience it. Let me help you use your passions, strengths, and talents that you’ve been given to help you turn your college and career dreams into realities.
So come on and grab a ticket before it’s sold out.
Of course, if you know anyone that would benefit from getting help winning scholarships, please comment and spread the word!
Happy Scholarship Winning!
