If only years ago, for an 8th grade graduation gift, someone had given my older daughter the first book in the HOW TO SUCCEED series, she and her younger sister would have had an easier time in high school and applying to college.
I learned back then that a particular high school’s requirements for graduation may NOT be the application requirements for a particular college. And by the time my family learned this, the “die was cast,” as the saying goes.
Skip forward a few years and I began working with high school students and college students using marketing principles for applying to colleges and grad schools. It was then that I developed the overall framework for the 3-book HOW TO SUCCEED series for teens and young adults that I am just now self-publishing.
If you are planning to give a graduation gift to an 8th grader, consider HOW TO SUCCEED IN HIGH SCHOOL AND PREP FOR COLLEGE (available in paperback as well as ebook formats):
This first book in the series contains information specific to high school success and applying to colleges as well as information to help young people with interviewing, creating relationships with potential mentors, and following their passions. Exercises that build on the information are included.
If you are planning to give a graduation gift to a teen graduating from high school, consider HOW TO SUCCEED IN COLLEGE AND PREP FOR BEYOND COLLEGE (currently only available in Kindle format):
This second book contains information specific to college success and applying to graduate schools as well as information to help young people with interviewing, creating relationships with potential mentors, and following their passions. Exercises that build on the information are included.
And soon the third book – HOW TO SUCCEED BEYOND COLLEGE – will be available in Kindle format. (Get a sneak peek of the book cover now.)
