"Been compromised. As a candidate, Donald Trump vowed to safeguard classified material. In my administration, I'm going to enforce all laws concerning the protection of classified information. No one will be above the law. But now under investigation himself, he's changing his tune and his arguments. At first denouncing the raid is a political witch hunt, but then claiming that he had declassified the documents found at Mar-a-Lago anyway. Some of which were marked SCI that means from the most sensitive U.S. intelligence sources. Trump's also claiming that the FBI agents seized three of his passports during the raid, ABC News confirmed that's true, but all three have been returned and two were already expired. Amid a tax on the FBI by Trump and other Republicans, there has been an increase in threats and acts of violence towards law enforcement, including a Pennsylvania man who was charged Monday for threatening law enforcement officials in the days after the Mar-a-Lago raid, riding in one post, my only goal is to kill more of them before I drop. Meanwhile, in Georgia, in an unrelated investigation into Trump's effort to overturn the 2020 election. Prosecutors in Fulton county have notified Rudy Giuliani. Trump's lawyer in that battle that he is the target of an investigation there. That is typically one of the final stages before someone is indicted. Rudy Giuliani, former president Trump's personal attorney, who was challenging the 2020 election results, is now the target of an investigation by Georgia prosecutors who are looking into possible criminal activity surrounding those who tried to overturn those results. ABC News has learned that Giuliani is scheduled to testify tomorrow, but is pushed back on the investigation and his claim without evidence that Atlanta is a city known for corruption. ABC's Aaron koterski also says that South Carolina senator Lindsey Graham has also been called to testify but says he is not cooperating. Lindsey Graham says that because he's a sitting U.S. senator, he shouldn't have to participate, although a judge there has already overruled that said this has nothing to do with him being a senator. It has everything to do with him being a mouthpiece for allies of the former president who were trying to overturn the results of the Georgia vote. And we know that Lindsey Graham was on the phone, the judge said trying to question the integrity of the Georgia vote, questioning some of the ballots and the electors and clearly the prosecutors in Fulton county and metro Atlanta want to explore that a little bit with him.

"100% fully recovered from the knee surgery that he had today in Los Angeles with doctor Neil Ellis. And by the way, his teammate Mackay Becton also officially out for the year. Yeah, he's going to have surgery later this week in Los Angeles with the same doctor, by the way, surgery has not happened yet, but he was placed on IR his season officially over. The jets officially added Dwayne Brown yesterday so the team now has this new left tackle and right tackle combo with George fan moving over to the right side. We go from the jets to more joint practices as the packers are playing host to the New Orleans Saints. These two teams met all the way back in week one of last regular season the game was played in Jacksonville good to see these two teams that had plenty of defense and plenty of new faces amongst wide receivers on offense this off season and time now for us to bring in the great rob the MOFs who covers the packer force here at ESPN and rob sounded like a good day out there in Green Bay. What did you see on the field? Well, it wasn't that great of a day for the receivers field. In fact, if the expiration date on Aaron Rodgers patients with the young receivers was August 16th while he's reached it, they've expired. He expressed frustration with the group for the first time, really, since they lost devonta Adams in free agency. Now he's not frustrated with Allen lazard, who he thinks can be a legitimate number one. He's not frustrated with Randall Cobb, who he called one of the premier slot receivers in the NFL and not with Sammy Watkins either who's he said had his best practice today against the saints, but after watching mistakes and routes and drops cost Jordan love three interceptions in the preseason game against San Francisco and then another sloppy practice today. Rogers said that those young receivers have got to become more consistent. I asked them when does consistency have to inconsistency, excuse me, have to turn into production and he said, well, it's now the time is now it's coming. Giving the obvious answer that they're running out of time before the opener. Now they will get some reinforcements back in the passing game. Christian Watson, their top draft pick, the second round pick and Robert Tonya and their tight end have both come off P UP. Now, none of them did anything in the team stuff against the saints today. They're just doing individual drills, but the fact that they're back here in practice and doing some individual stuff and some jog through stuff field, at least gives Rogers a couple of more weapons before they get to that season opener at Minnesota. All right, there you have it. The latest on the packers pass catchers from rob demos. Thank you so much for joining us here. Rob. Another day of doing practice is coming up tomorrow. There's been plenty of talk about how Green Bay's offense will look without devonte Adams this season, but one thing seems certain. Aaron Rodgers success could be defined by his protection up front. Last season Rogers ranked top three in QBR completion percentage and yards per tech when kept clean, but when he was pressured, he reached at the bottom of the league in all of those same areas, so Damon is our resident offensive lineman, both packers offensive tackles are coming off of injuries. David bakhtiari still on puppy, how concerned are you about this packers offensive line right now? I'm concerned. I'm concerned. I mean, listen, we just looked at the stats on the graphic right there. Yeah. When he, you know, and this is the case with any quarterback really, but obviously Aaron Rodgers is really a stark difference. Oh, there's no question about it. He's greatly, you know, effective with that pressure. You're talking about both starting tackles that are coming back from major surgery as much as we talk about The Rookie wide receivers and obviously the tandem in the backfield with AJ Dylan and Aaron Jones. If you don't have the protection, you don't have the guys on the edges to give Aaron Rodgers to a clean pocket to survey those guys. What does it matter? None of it matters. So to me, when I look at the Green Bay Packers, that's what I got my eye on. Yeah, it's almost in the same vein of how we talk about New England with the benefit of the doubt with Bill Belichick, but this is live action and when you're on that field, your protection predicates how good you are in quarterback, obviously, by the graphic that we showed, but the more the thing that I really focus on and what robbed in my Damascus coming off of is the rapport receivers help you get the ball out of your hands quicker. And the one thing I think receivers have to understand in a couple of guys that's been around lazard and obviously we're in the cop and getting telling you back is that Aaron Rodgers is going to make throws that other quarterbacks in the NFL can't make. He's going to take chances in tightrope throws that other guys just aren't able to do. It's a couple Herbert and obviously Patrick Mahomes, but ultimately getting on the same page with these guys is a part of your offensive line as well. Being able to protect and maybe needing a little bit more time to push the ball downfield because you don't have that report built. It'll be interesting to watch, man. This is not a great combination. When you're trying to break in receivers, especially trying to find a number one guy after what you lose with devonta Adams, but also worrying about protection and time that you have to throw the football. Remember this fellas, Aaron Rodgers is going to throw the ball sometimes and we are going to be like, what is happening? You got to have receivers that understand that as well and you need time to do that. Rob said he's frustrated with young receivers. Yeah. Christian Watson is just back at practice. He didn't name him, but he unofficially named him, right? Like, that's who you took it to be. Right. Now he's been sensational during training camp, and I would think that any young receiver is going to have ups and downs. And so this seemed like a down day, I guess, for him. After a week in which he caught a long pass, also dropped a ball or two. So again, ups and downs. I think that's par for the course for the young receivers, and that's why this team is going to have to lean on running the football short passes. Robert tongue and getting him back at tight end, hopefully, and having him back for the start of the season, throwing to the two backs out of the backfield, doing other things that are a little bit different than they've done in the past. But you know what? That's the experts when you expect it to win now. You know, Aaron Rodgers talked about like, guys, we don't have time to wait like literally week one it's coming. You know, if this is a rebuilding team, it's one thing, but when you're expected to contend for a championship, it's almost like we don't have time to wait for you. You got to figure it out right now. And they certainly don't want to repeat of last year's week one. 38 to three against the New Orleans Saints, the game was being played in Jacksonville, of course, because you just chose, you just chose violence. I couldn't help myself. Second time on the show today, I'm feisty today. Hey, time now for one more thing. And Aaron Rodgers may not have trust with his young wide receivers at least entirely, but he doesn't have a Nick cage bust in his locker and Damien, that to me feels like raising enough to believe he could be the back to back to back MVP this year. Yeah, man, his swag is just on a trillion right now. I mean, to have a Nick K busting your locker. Who does that? Yeah, hey, swagger, did you ever carry anything weird in your locker during your playing days? Nah, nothing weird at all. Pitch up my family, but I wasn't good enough to put no foolish people. You first try, come on now, swagger. I don't mean you're good enough. I had to go back to the league as far as I could say. You could have whatever you wanted in your locker.

"Rookie to take over a job and make it his own. Good stuff there, coming up with NFL library, the live report from Green Bay in the joint practice between the packers and the saints eyes may be on the new wide receivers in Green Bay. What do you test? We should be looking elsewhere. Breaking news into NFL live involves jets quarterback Zach Wilson shifty. What can you tell us? Feel he went underwent knee surgery today. It was the best case scenario for the jets they initially had said two to four weeks, but it certainly sounds like Joe Flacco is in line to start with the ravens and the jets are going to be very careful with Zach Wilson and not bring him back until he is a 100% fully recovered from the knee surgery that he had today in Los Angeles with doctor Neil Ellis. And by the way, his teammate Mackay Becton also officially out for the year. Yeah, he's going to have surgery later this week in Los Angeles with the same doctor.

He means the tying run at the plate now, though we'll see what downing does. Alice about delivers and his low ball one. And that just adds to the pressure. The crowd going, downing has to ignore the sound effect. And stay a professional in pitches game.

"Hello welcome back to the aaron parsons project. I'm your host erin. Parsons i wanted to touch on something that i've been taught since my childhood which i will follow up with a big issue. I've noticed over the last year. This is going to bother some listeners. But i can't stay silent about it anymore. We've become so divided that it's not even funny. We've got republicans versus democrats liberals versus progressive conservatives appear in canada proud boys versus antifa even log cabin conservatives versus albright this whole thing of making one side the good guy in one side the enemy. It's going to kill one of the greatest privileges. We all have as human beings serving other people even people. we don't like disagree with. We are constantly forgetting that even dismissing the fact that in a democracy and free society expression of ideas risk being offensive. We all have different values and life experiences. We need to hear truths and stories. That are uncomfortable and that discomfort has to lead us to a place where we can say. What can i do for you. Or how can i help you. the truth. is that the most satisfying thing we can do with. Our lives is to give a large part of ourselves to a hill. Were willing to die on that benefits others before ourselves. We're always going to encounter people we don't like we're always to encounter people who play the innocent victim but don't take responsibility when they can. We're always going to find people who abuse those who are truly helpless. We're always going to see divisions based on class race ability trends and who's who in our societal zoos. If we're going to get ahead. We must figure out how to build bridges to each other rather than walls that divide us. We need to shutdown arguments that go nowhere and start having discussions that lead to some form of problem solving restoration where everyone wins in the end. I know it seems impossible. But if this divisive attitude that a lot of us have keeps going is going to be the end of a saul. We need to love each other more than we all deserve. We can't paint people with a broad brush just because of what team were on or because of what team. They're on each human being presents another with an opportunity to serve..

"Sometimes christians they get too caught up in the fundamentals. I've been trying to solve my own suffering by hacking away at my problems using the fundamentals that i learned in the church and in my experience nothing has helped me even when i pray to god asking for him to come through to perform a miracle or something twenty nineteen. After selling my house. I realized that when one gets caught up in fundamentals and reacts towards life based on biased binary facts that were learned. There's no room to ask questions or to see the world from another perspective. Philosophy is really about the study of ideas and their power over our lives. Alfred alder once said that a person's behavior springs from his ideas so studying ideas whether religious secular liberal conservative. Whatever it's important but it's not just important to understand the actions of others but to understand ourselves our faith why people live the way they live and it's also important in order to understand god and to understand life itself. Studying philosophy helps humans. Because it's like a hammer that helps us as a species. Build our faith creatively. We have to work on this creation. In order to make our faith their own life itself has guided by many ideas such as truth beauty justice meaning morality and much more studying all of this on top of biblical diet can lead to a greater understanding of some of the most important aspects of living life. Let me move on to talk about. Meaning the question of meaning is one of the most important aspects of anyone's life. Viktor frankl the writer of the book. Man's search for meaning. He recognized that we suffer. Because we don't take proper steps to finding meaning frankl believes that finding meaning is important key to mental health. Philosophy should be part of christianity because it's a critical tool for examining our life into find meaning in life but the church one embrace philosophy in itself because it stuck in its own methods in dogmatic views of examining life and finding meaning it depends solely on one holy man jesus christ rather than operating on interdependence the best of philosophy is actually giving me helpful insights that we need to address. Life's ultimate questions and to help us find meaning and purpose. The truth is that every second. We look at something whether it's on a screen or walk in the park influenced by a world of ideas. We need to study them. We need to look at them closely because studying them in an effort to understand them in their effect on us is a worthy important thing for our mental health. The truth is that philosophy can actually help. A lot of the characters involved in the stories told in the beginning of this episode. The truth is that most of the time. I we go through the motions. Just say whatever and live relies with the set of guidelines that cheaper identity without taking the time to shape it ourselves by asking questions were pondering through things. I think the problem is that we've let many benign parts of our lives dictate. How we live in think rather than rather than just trying to live independently. We let her job support us on autopilot and then we go home and watch netflix. We lead a pastor. Tell us how to see the world. And then sharon debate about it on facebook. Afterwards as teens and young adults we go to school and then we come home. We share someone else's thoughts on tiktok or instagram. Or we hang out with friends and talk about who's getting with who while deciding what sports are video games to play. We work all day after we work. We party we are hobbies. Pray remake love at night. I've known as a musician as a christian and even as a child that there was more to life than any of this. But i never figured things out until i started studying philosophy. You see what philosophy does is. It breaks you out of a dogmatic way of thinking. It breaks you away from viewing and living in the world just going through the motions when all we do is just work playing get sucked into politics news tv and religion without exploring ideas which has pleasure materialism embraced toxic positively. We think we're always right and we never feel. Were wrong we get stuck in certainty for the victim. We'd become angry. we become entitled. We think the world should revolve around us without taking responsibility for what matters. We need to understand life itself rather than get mad about a couple of democrats pedophile trying to swallow her babies. We need to go through suffering of sobbing when millionaires make more money. And yes they think this is wrong. So if you're frustrated with evangelical ism like i don't wanna get caught up in all the craziness of this world or if you're looking for something more than just living life. Once this whole thing is over with with covid. I see tickets studying philosophy in your spare time can do this by journaling after reading a few books or if your mental health is fragile. Maybe go for counseling or therapy with someone versed in philosophy. Now one of the books. I would recommend if you're just getting started with studying. Philosophy is a book that's changed my life now because of the language i'm going to be a little careful with stating the title. It's called the subtle art of not giving a word that rhymes with firetruck mark manson. The author of this book emphasizes the importance of philosophy. Because finding something important and meaningful in your life is the most productive use of your time and energy life itself has problems associated with it and finding meaning in your life will help sustain the effort needed to overcome the particular problems face in a sense mark rates that the key to living a good life is not giving a damn about more things but rather giving a dam only about things that align with your personal values some of the greatest points he makes that suffering is inevitable and that what most people in the middle class consider first world problems their life problems really just side effects of not having anything more important to worry about.

Statement is not going to be helpful unless each of us does something to keep the world turning looking at proverbs twenty four fourteen. It says no also that wisdom is sweet to your soul. If you find it there is a future hope for you and your hope will not be cut off so i think we really need to sit down and take a look at what needs to be done. We can't just sit in our tribal bubbles anymore. A lot of conservative sino. They want their businesses to going while most of us who are left of center need to feed our families and create a better future for our children. Someone posted that the talk with people who won't wear masks or others who voted in politicians. Who won't pass laws. That helped the little guy. The truth is the hatred that came with this is going to be our next pandemic yes. I'm still very angry. Especially with some of the articles. My friends have been sharing. But i can't let that stop me. Spring is coming. Easter is coming very soon. Don't need things to go back to normal. I'm sure that all of us want to thrive pass normal not long ago a place that volunteered are called scope opened up a shelter for those who were homeless and struggling with mental health.

There should be a link to all the donation details on scopes website. If you want to help those who struggle to get back on. Their feet scopes a great cause and their tax deductible. Now you're probably wondering aaron. Are you a little bit. Scared catching covid. I'm slightly hesitant to do anything even with the high chance of recovering survival. But i'm more afraid that i won't have learned. Anything changed for the better while. I was staying home in working on myself all this time. I've been exercising taking online courses and even started writing a book. That should take me somewhere once. Everything's running smoothly again. If it doesn't then. I have no idea what the future has in store for me or the friends. I can still see after all this.

"One two three four of long long time ago. I can still remember. Capitalism used to make me smile. We're not going do the rest. There was this one time one living in my old house. I was praying. I was asking god to show me where my wife. And i would be in the next few years. The strangest part of that prayer was that all the lord's showed me was that we would sell her house. Twenty nineteen and then twenty twenty happened a year ago today. Winnipeg reported its first case of covid. I remember that morning when it happened. I just finished editing. My first official studio album. I walked away from my desk into the living room cited to celebrate with my wife before she started writing a blog post. She looked at me and with a blank expression on her face. Said it's here. I looked at her stunned. I had absolutely no idea how to respond to her. At that point my parents were visiting family ontario and we were house sitting. I was scared knowing. What something like. This corona virus could do to older relatives as soon as i could. I called my dad. And i tried to convince them to give back to manitoba's soon as possible. I wasn't thinking about flights coster. Anything i didn't care about any hidden government agendas conspiracies and i never cared about the real case numbers in saskatchewan or toronto. I never cared about businesses. Shutting down or that people would be blaming bill gates and they would leave me on non speaking terms. I had no idea all of this would shake and challenge my faith and beliefs and caused me to cry as my evangelical friends freely expressed outrage at a new enemy post. Nine eleven. I just wanted to make sure i can see my parents in loved ones again before something big happened. Nothing else mattered. Thankfully i was able to get my parents home the following week before everything shut down during that week i was on edge. I had no mask while food shopping. I had to go to the airport with my face exposed to pick up my parents with their car and once it got to the airport i walked into a sea of people with fear in their eyes. I watched a sports teams loaded bags onto trucks. Some of them had short were dressed for the cold march weather at.

"Somebody's personality on test when it comes to just a snapshot of the moment that they're taking it absolutely in this in these are all fun things that we can really do. You know we're talking about college. Though now we're talking about a house level decision and some of them. That's GonNa make such an impact on a kid's future that there is nothing else to compare it against gets in that sense right. You know you can't you can't match a career based on just one personality tests and you can't it also doesn't take into consideration today's economy a and what jobs are out there like what the really really like so. I'm I'm a realtor my other job. I do it for fun for friends. I I really feel like ambiance is a lot like zillow when it comes to finding a house. It's a really fun tool. You get to go on there and you get to see like what houses are available. Would you know they last sold for that kind of thing but it's not perfect zillow will feed you. A lot of houses actually aren't available or they sold but you know zillow's not updated and whatnot. I'm not trying to rag on sale because it's really fine and I like to go on it too but you can't just you can you theoretically can go on and find a house and just do all of it you can you can buy it. You know yourself hyphen and go through the contract work and navigate it all yourself but you don't know if you're getting the best deal. You probably are not getting the best deal. You don't now if you're getting the right fit for what you're looking for in the first place you you know zillow's not gonNa you know do home inspection for you or are you know there. There's just a lot of other things that go into it that you know. A website tool can't do you really you really need to do more homework and more personal work. I mean you deal with bought right useful tools. I think that's the marketable difference between this and which you're describing zillow navy and then the rest of like like college planning on working with somebody on it. There's a difference when a tool and then a process and a person very say so all these great tools roles and there are all useful in some degree but at the same time like you said like Zillow isn't GonNa go and actually negotiate a contract with you. I mean how many people out there literally early raise your hands as you're reading this have done a physio and for sale by owner yeah and how many of you thought about it and then thought otherwise about it because it's overly complicated on how to buy a house you have to line up the financing. There's so much to it and for good reason you go to somebody right because you're literally spending two hundred thousand dollars in most cases on something that's going to pretty much change your life being buying a house and then you have to have fifty the witnesses to sign off on it before you even get to that right so just seeing pictures on a website. It's like you're. You're kind of taking a risk right. They're not doing you know your full due diligence. If you jus- go that route but you know I am here to tell you that you know figuring out your college plan is actually way more complicated and way harder than buying a house. So you know I mean more yeah. I said on both sides and and it's a lot more at risk. There's a lot more. There's a lot more that is confusing. takes US two years right. I mean you can buy a house and hopefully a couple of weeks. A COUPLE OF MONTHS TAKES US two years to do this absolutely right and but the the the the inevitable issue and of course in this where I was trying to make these connections so people can see how these things connect to their normal lives and and again why now is a great tool to get you kind of often Ryan to some degree but it's not a replacement for just good in person working communication with a with an adviser things like this again in house analogy. Let's say any given your city. There's three thousand houses on the market which might be actually pretty accurate. Are you going to sift through three thousand houses on Zillow and people are you going to sift through all the options that you need an order by that place and then find like okay are the neighborhoods lineup to what we're looking for Do we have enough bedroom all those things. Are you going to do this. Forty two hundred schools in this country makes it a lot more complicated. There's four thousand two hundred university in this country each one with about two hundred majors in ranging from price tags for about two thousand dollars to it's eight hundred thousand dollars per year. That's what you're dealing with now beyonce and a teenager. That's our solution to currently like really like. That's that's what we're saying like a fifteen year old sixteen year old seven zero. Here's will go figure that out. Yeah play on the website and find your school. Put it that way not dogging the onset aw it's about finding a place for now beyond just explaining what is what is right yeah. I feel like we're doing kids. It's a disservice in general in this country saying like here. You're sixteen years old. Just go figure out what the heck you. WanNa do for the rest of your life but I think there needs to be a lot more conversation. Surrounding it like you said there needs to be a person that they're working with and that they're able to talk through their thoughts and feelings about these things not just say hey. Here's the results of a test yeah. Go on and can figure out what you WANNA do now because it's not going to take your job. Shadowing may help you develop your career path once it's given you said you'd be a really great dentist. It's it's on help you develop that yeah. They're not going to have that confidence that they would. If they tasted at touched it felt it out there in the field experience you get doing job shadowing like you said and doing research on careers and on schools guided research not just like here's a book of one hundred and seventy seven major sort through them but yeah they won't they won't don't feel as confident when their and their direction. I think about the other side and so I I think the the core issue about this concept of what nonviolence Lavigne's is versus. What we're trying to make it be is one in this country that it's just like? We just want the quickest and easiest route right but that's not always the best answer and in fact. It's not even close. I I just want everybody to always think of this college planning thing in the same level of magnitude as again. We're talking about buying house today. It is of that magnitude greater magnitude. Yes it's a greater magnitude even of buying retirement and you don't go to a bad for that either like you actually actually go to people for these large scale investments. That's what colleges. It's a large scale investment academically financially your kids future. We want what's best for kids across the board. One small tool. That's useful part of this is not the solution to it. It's part of the solution and we want to make sure that we can understand Dan. This has a whole that we can see like it takes that it takes two years of good guidance of understanding what it is you. WanNa do on one to one scale almost in order to be able to figure this stuff out is again. Anything of these large asset magnitudes of these large asset buys us. Just say we're we use each other. We use people in order to be able to do these things things same deal here we haven't even mentioned either of the fact that how likely is your kid to actually sit down and use them the accountability their self guide your way through all this by the way out of these forty two hundred plus for you and the financing for four two and we haven't even really gone and that's this is really honestly for a whole other podcast but the fallout of not doing this right not planning for college right like what what's the consequence well and. I'm sure we will go through Alan podcast but the truth is. I'm sure anybody listening can automatically put a story in their head. Yup of how this has been done really badly and how this can ended up really badly. We'll save that topic for Halloween. I mean just like high level like what's the consequences so you you know you go to the Ron College. Pick the wrong major. Stay there too long and up taking on rampant amounts of debt none in that. Let's see what's your all true. Imagine the school has the majors you like but it has no intention of doing the major in the way that you wanted imagine if you're doing use this example a lot if you're doing marketing and you're thinking Oh. I'm really highly creative. I can't wait to get into design and then you get a very statistics laden math heavy marketing program and you're GonNa hate life in that program and you're going to think oh my gosh. I hate marketing know the truth. Is this version version of that and you pick. The school didn't do it in the way that you wanted to so now you're for your job prospects or you can just put your major probably. GonNa Switch your major into something. That has nothing intendant on what you really wanted to do. So now you've screwed up on the financial structure because you've really haven't paid attention that the academics that you're going there for completely changed and your job prospects and what you're going to do afterward is completely changed and now your problem school for five years and maybe scholarship money but ran after four because because that's how long they run so now you're paying for that last year or maybe even two extra years. It can get to be a real snowball of problem okay. I think this is really helpful awful for parents especially parents of seniors that are hearing about now the aunts and just like maybe even for the first time a lot of my kids. I'm like do you use. I think I've heard the word before four eighth grade. We did a tutorial again. NAVIENT is a useful tool. No doubt about it. We use it all the time whenever our kids have had that system set up at the high schools in order to help us finish the college application process. It's the perfect way if I could even say hi how to submit transcripts to letters of REC that way they're they're automatically. All of the guidance counselor have to do is push a button. It makes very seamless with common APP. It's really awesome those pieces aces so I think that there's just understand the difference between the tools versus the trade yup right and seeing what we can make make differences out of those things okay well Aaron.

"Many students are now having to try and wheel and deal with <hes> accepted students to try and put it off a year or a semester so they accepted too many students which they all this. This part is very much like buying plane tickets where they overbook purposefully knowing that people aren't going to show up seats are going to be taken so they over book a flight same deal here now. The truth is into the vast majority of cases. The actual teams that work for these schools usually predicts pretty good virginia tech did not which is very surprising because it's a math and engineering school. Go figure you think they could add <hes> but <hes> yeah they had too many students that said yes and so you run into this other problem where now they don't have any space for these kids and so what do you do so that could be a whole other podcast so the takeaway today are common app is now open. You should do your homework in advance vance. Have the checkless page over mother's maiden name birthdays resumes a._c._t. Scores all of that jazz said do are your essays early. Be thoughtful about your essays. Have them correlate with your career plan. So career planning is important then. You're ready to do the common. I'm an app go to school guidance counselor plug for you and then and only apply to five to seven schools seven so that's how you do it anything else. I'm gonna throw out in there. <hes> if you are on a system like navient or something like that do go talk to guidance counselor even more because letters of rec and in a few other things get submitted through that so usually a guidance counselor have a senior night or a calm or navy night <hes> at the beginning of school year so make sure you you go through through that because those since they are digital sources they actually link to common app on the back end so your letters of rec in transcripts kitson bidded digitally through those we're not experts in them by any measure your guidance counselor should be if they have the system otherwise they shouldn't have bought it but i would go to them in order to do that too absolutely and then the other thing <hes> again make sure that once you've applied you look through the portals figure out what else is necessary i can't i can't tell you the number of students who came in there like i didn't know so. I had to do a supplemental so it's right there. It's not always not every school asks for supplemental. Some ask for several syracuse asked for seven last year for one one of my students <hes> but you need to know that right because you don't want to get to a week before you think you're ready. Everything's reading or applying and realize oh man. I still have a three hundred word supplemental right because he thinks her equally is important. I think of every piece of this process as like a key that opens a gate right your a common application and with all of your scores in your transcript and your activities is what opens the first gate and then they read your essay they may determine whether or not that opens the next gate then maybe there's a satis up lamented that they read and that determines what gets you in but at any point in this process you know you you can forget a stab. You can just kind of do a slips shot job and get things done at the last minute and that will close. There's a gate for you and that seems really silly so i mean honestly if you are a strong candidate if you look great on paper if everything should line up for you then take hate the extra time to get the supplemental stein get a really quality essay written for your common app essay or the coalition they're different by the way to coalition also requires an essay but make sure that you've done that extra work do not do not blow all of the hardware that you've done all through high school. You've done three years at this point of quality work. Don't blow it with last minute essay writing. I know we talked a little bit about this when we talked about that say but don't vote with <hes> with writing or supplemental at the last minute or just thinking your essays fine or that. You're going to recycle something which you can do but we encourage you to so take your time. It's if if you come to if few students or anybody if they ask you well so do this part. If you're thinking that then you might as well just not do any of it honestly because it's one of those this things have diligence. If if if you're being shoddy about it in your feeling on a section or you forget to kiss it goodbye stun and if a school says <hes> this is not mandatory but recommended do it. You're gonna show your demonstrated interest by doing the work. You're like. It's worth it to me right additional three hundred word essay because i really wanna go there. Don't expect any favours from school in terms of scholarship money in terms of emissions or anything if you don't do all the things whether or not not they're required a recommended just do them all and that's basically just do do and do a thorough. Do the best work you can. This is important exactly and by starting early <music>. You're starting. If you really are doing it. In august you have several weeks before school starts. You can get so much of it done so that you are not trying to cram this in the kids who really struggle last here from where my our students came aboard with in the ball rather than earlier because they just had less time they were doing career development and researching schools at the same the time they were applying and writing supplementals and that was just i mean and then actually trying to go to school and also played sports so what you have the time. Go ahead and get it done early. Don't try to mix it all together. <hes> one of this little side story but one we were talking to our students story and one of the workshops and hannah who is one of our awesome. I'm writing center.

"aaron " Discussed on Affording College with Aaron Greene

"Six million in higher education costs. So why do this podcast? Well, I really want offer some solid vice for families when it comes to planning for college, and higher education because truthfully, there's just so much misinformation out there. So that's what affording college is all about offering folks out advice, free advice. So subscribe to really help families planning for their children's futures and today sitting here with my marketing director, also have be my way, Alex and between us we have. Four kids. So maybe he was listening can relate to this. We're in the middle of trying to figure this out far four kids in the summer and what to do with exactly you nail that we are just trying to figure out what the heck are we doing with our kids this summer there? It's always a struggle, as you know, you know, trying to figure out what, you know, trying to get them to not sit around on their ipads all day. So, yeah, we're trying to figure out if we're you know what camps are going to like, should, you know, some of them go to daycare. I don't know. We, we have a good friend who actually gives a good, talk and just like today's world like how we're trying to not use their kids, but had was it? Telling us, you know, he was just lamenting about how have trout challenging it is in this day and age to have kids, because, you know, your it is a constant struggle. Parenting is of trying to find places to put your children, and he really nailed it. You know, I feel like my entire day is circled around where do I put these children now where do I put them next? Where do I put them after this special in the summer? No schools, good anchor for about nine months. Right. Archea great. We love them. But, you know there are days that I am like I can't wait 'til they're old enough to work. Is that horrible? It's not at all. I had two part time jobs on I was in high school. And, you know, it's to say the least for me, it felt alter valuable because I got the earned my money, you know, got to kind of dictate my time, and I was actually doing you had a part time job to. Well, that's interesting. You know, I did in high school. I did go out and get myself a job. But my parents, did not want me to so, you know, that's I guess, that's the question that we're really here to talk about. You know, should kids in high school, get jobs. My parents, do not want me to get a job because they were afraid that it would take away from my schoolwork. They were like why would you wanna waste your one of your last summer's at home, working when you could be at the pool with your friends, and this, and that I know that's awesome. Right. But they just they didn't understand they said and we were in a financial situation. Fortunately, where you know they didn't need. Me to work. So they were like, why would you do that? So what do you think? Well, you know, in my situation, disconnect double back on that, you know, your from DC, so, you know, getting around and transportation and your parents and it was it was hard of it. You know, I wasn't I didn't have my license for part of the time. I had a job. And so it was kinda more of our Shifter like Alex, far you making us drive you to the mall so you can work at American Eagle. I was like I need the experience, but I get my license very shortly after that. So that helped, you know, in, in that same vein, though for families in DC and, and people growing up and living. I mean you've got you've got the we had the metro metro that's the word. I'm looking for things. I grew up in Cincinnati in the suburbs. I mean there was no other way to get around. If you didn't have a car. And I had to had to fund my car. Ms Moore, unless the thing. So you know it's, it's and being sixteen. You get the worst cars ever. At a nineteen eighty six hundred core. The my head JoAnne gave me. That I had to learn how to drive a stick on. And the thing is this is the great thing about cars when you're sixteen that, hopefully, you know, you think back on it, it's like why in the world would I do this? But the car wouldn't stay on if my foot wasn't on the gas. And if you know how to drive the car with a clutch you can't really do that. So had you. Yeah, I did actually had to learn how to use the clutch and the break with my left foot and just keep my foot consistent on the gas my right? That's why my, my mom actually drives to footed. I mean for the last however, many years that she's been driving forty five or something. Yes, she drives to. You could talking point for you with her. You drive to put it. I drive to foot it to. That's why. So he's got way off topic with that. But still. Yeah. So what are your thoughts on? What should D age kids be doing this summer should they be working? Should they not should they take my parents advice? And you, you know, live it up, all you can or should they take summer school will truth is kind of all three and summer school being if needed. Right. So really, you should jaw enjoy the time that you have, honestly. Oh, it should get you won't really get that back. I remember again, I worked two jobs in between my between my sophomore junior year in the Mitchell junior and senior. And then I think just actually had both of them between my senior and freshman year college, but I didn't work nearly as much because that was. You know you don't get that time back. So I remember, I just kind of sat on the couch and watch jaws for like three weeks in a row like four times a day. Right. When I actually exited at high school, and then I was like, okay, I'll go back to work now. But, you know you need a little bit of the relaxation time. But at the same time, some job is actually really important for kid in a couple of different ways one, I'm going to answer from a parent perspective as you and I talk about this for our kids, and how we grew up it to me, it's important to make sure that the kid has some skin in the game and understanding what that means because eventually, they're going to go to work, and that sounds very fatalistic that you're gonna have a job for the rest of your life. But part of it is just waiting into that water, not being thrusted into that water. So I really like that side of it. But at the same time from the college side, and planning for it in that, same, then yet is because I think you have to learn how to one take initiative college Bill different very differently than high school in the sense of the way it's taught high school, you show up your teachers, teach you if that doesn't work then. Constantly help you to try to catch up and college. If you don't show up you don't class. It's on you. And having a part time job kind of starts to begin to teach you that because if you don't show up if you don't do what you're supposed to get fired. And you get embarrassed and all those other things that really happen. So working having a job during high school, you think helps prepare them for just being a self starter. I think it helps. You answer seventy other than your teacher your parents. Exactly. Okay. I really think it helps you really just two way things are going to be going forward with just waiting in that at ten hours twenty hours a week versus being thrusted into it. Once you get into college 'cause truthfully the, the, the biggest problem, students have in their fresh first semester of their freshman year is the fact that they're just a Justin for life. And how do you really do college because it's very different than a parent sitting at home saying, did you do your homework? Did you go to class? Did you do all these things and they really done that yet in their life? And so if you. Can get a good jumps on on that the better. Now, here's the other side of that. That's one side and the maturity issue that's one part of getting a part time job. Which is important, the other is having something if you can if you can something pointed direction, that the air, you're planning going into so a great example, all of our med bay students program. Volunteer local hospitals, don't get paid there. But they do volunteer there, so that to me is like a summer job, more or less because they can do more hours in that field one. It's giving them direct exposure to the medical profession that actually exist there. And working with patients on a day-to-day to. It's a great resume resume builder for them once application season actually starts to how important is that it today? Honestly, it's pretty important will be honest with you used to be the, the concept of getting the schools were two things grades test scores. Now it's grades test scores resume how around at are you? But not even how well rounded. Are you overall anymore? It's how well rounded, are you in the area that you direct towards so? We're at a point now where even your high school curriculum kind of has to be slanted towards. I'm going to be an engineer or an accountant or nurse or a doctor or something like that. You have to have the basic bios and Kim's and more advanced classes in that territory, maybe miss Manetti visibility and then you support that with jobs in that respect of area, I volunteering at local hospitals or if you were going to go into working with animals volunteering vet clinics, things like that, that really helped to more or less pad that component of it. You're saying that, like a sixteen year olds shouldn't just like go get a job at American Eagle offers. Because they're like I need something to do like they if they're going to be looking for job. They should be looking for something very specific. If the Kim, that's the first step the, the go in and get a job at American Eagle. And I actually worked at Arthur triggers, fish and chips. Was that at during the day, I was a groundskeeper by touching than I worked at other trees fishing chips at night in a mall. But that first part solve with the maturity part, that's why we talked about the beginning just getting out there and getting something at least shows better than nothing, nothing. But like if you are going to be working with animals, and you can get a job at the local zoo, something that is just getting to help you in two ways, as opposed to one exactly that must that's sounds super important. In fact, I think we just put up a list for all the jobs that the Columbus city zoo has listed for the summer for high school kids, just in our office. So we can have our kids, see, okay for veteran, students in our animal based animal science students. These are some things you can go do this summer. That's really directed in your area and actually still get paid for that seems like it'd be beneficial. Because what if you know, your, your sixteen year old, thanks? I really wanna get work with animals, and they work at zoo, and they're like, Ryan. I don't wanna wear animals that can help you. Wow. So that's really gonna help you before you go applying to colleges. Just try to figure out what it is. You really why the that's the strategy. Even then that's the piece that we wanna put in this that way our kids can see that early enough on and start to get understanding for the profession anyway. Similar to job shadowing, but actually better because again, it's better for resume head, if they actually put it on the do like it. We're in great shape and they've got real job. Now they're entering school than exactly what they're going to do. They're getting out early all of these things play and become just like a series of dominoes, and all totally works on them. Then you're like ten steps ahead of all the other kids in your high school class, and college when you get there, drizzly because most of those kids are still guessing with they're going to do and trying to figure it out along the way and they're gonna change your major five times, you're not doing that because you've already taken initiative to go. Find out exactly what this job is that's going to happen, once it's done. You know what the end goal is gonna look like and feel like when it's all said and done this, actually we always. In a couple of high school in turns into our business every year. And if the then you probably have noticed this, but the ones we already bring, in our more dedicated to the things that we need us for our business. So we.

"aaron " Discussed on Affording College with Aaron Greene

"Welcome to affording college with Aaron green founder and president of college liftoff. All right. Thanks thirty. I saw come in college. I'm Aaron greenhouse of affording college and found of college off college is a college planning firm, I started to provide solutions for anybody and everybody that's going through college planning our has college planning needs. Our mission is to secure teens brightest future, and save them and their families. Thousands of dollars in the process we work with teams throughout the entire college planning process starting with personalized one on one critic element work from there. We find the best schools to match students chosen career paths and interest then offer support throughout the entire mission's process next. We work with families budgets, to find the price that makes the most sense for their kids education all while ensuring it's the right fit today, we are Hirose premier college planning firm. I'm happy to say that where shooting for the world, by the way, and we strive to save time stress and money when it comes to your child's higher education. So that's a little background on myself and college lift off from I do this podcast. I really wanna offer. Families from salad vice when it comes to planning for college and higher education because there's so much misinformation out there. The purpose of this podcast is to dispel, the Mets and misinformation, and really help families. So let's talk about college essays bit. That's what we're gonna do today. I'm sitting here again with page manager Clive planet and Emma Levi's. So we're going to talk about the essay writing process. And of course, the question that you're probably asking Aaron why in the world are you talking about? Essay writing and may the beginning of may because of the fact that this, this whole thing is a wildcard at least feels like it to most students in most families. I mean, we have a lot of kids that do really excellently in school. We have kids have very good GPA's or valid Tories. Or if not close to a NS. ACS scores atop ninety percentile and the Neville is, what is really saying in the end in how well is being done because the truth is, if you're a looks like it was written from you. Like when you were twelve years old, all that stuff go straight off the window, and that's year's worth of work, and time and effort that you put in your school, and everything else, and all the news you done, and you're a is kind of caring your banner, and if it's if it's off, it's if it's wrong, and you spent an hour doing it right before you need to turn it, and that's problem. And so we're gonna talk about that today in the outs. So figured let's start off with some things. We want avoid let's put it that way, some of the downsides of when this is done wrong. What are you guys thing? Definitely procrastination is a thing that I see a lot with even I feel like so my seniors last year that I had worked with for a while. We'd been talking about the sl really pushing them to try to get started on it. And it was that I think you're right. They were just scared of that. And I think that's where a lot of a lot of people that procrastination comes in, because I don't even know where to start. I'm so scared of it. I'm so scared of doing it wrong. Just don't do it right, nothing. I don't have to think about it. And that's the absolute wrong way to go about it. So starting earlier. Exactly. So we're talking about this may because the comment prompts are out. They've been published doing exactly so that's something that you can start doing brainstorming on, now an August first happens, and the common up opens up, you can just plug that right in there. You're good done before you're even starts. So that's why we focus within college lift off on doing writing center work really in the summer before. Exactly. There's no reason to wait. And I mean what we tend to see as what I don't. On what I don't want to happen is for students come in be super passionate about an essay, that's just the wrong fit the wrong fit for the prompt the wrong fit for who they are as a person. The biggest thing the biggest thing that we wanna see an essay is showing change over time. What did it look like before? What did they do differently now? What is the outcome? That is a big part of what colleges wanna see from you, are, you learning are you growing are you the same person that you were at twelve because if so they probably don't have a place for you. Right. But if you if you can show that you're making changes over time. Right. Or that you, you know you've struggled with something come out stronger on the other side of it. Or if you if there's something I one of the promises about, you know, something that you're super passionate about, like the you know, you would give up anything to do. You know, I wanna know. Why, why are you passionate don't say, yeah. I loved us yet. I love it. I love it. Doesn't really tell us enough about why you love it. Why it keeps you from sleep? Being at night, or makes it possible for you to sit and one of our kids wrote, this great essay about sitting in, in a hotel room during a Bekasi writing pieces of music that, that he needed for like a spring concert, and I remember I in reading his work, I was sitting there with him. I totally understood why it was more fulfilling for him to sit in this hotel room and just craft this, this piece of music than it was to be out with his family doing fun stuff. So, and that happened that magic that you're talking about and that happens from planning ahead of time. And like doing writing an outline doing pre writing and making sure that you liked the direction that you're going to feel good about it, because you can't write this amazing essay in one day, and I feel like a lot of kids, and you can kinda get down on yourself as a writer a little bit, too. Well, maybe I don't this promise. Well, or I can't come up with supporting details and ideas. And that's not true. You just have to take time, very DA, December, right to come up with them. It Rome wasn't built in a day. Right. You've got a like, let that magic idea for supporting detail come to you. When you're laying in bed or whatever. Exactly. And see in the problem is not everybody's a writer, right? So we've got plenty of students that are English and writing or not their thing, even more reason to do what you just said. Because we can't allow this one thing to sink the whole ship for that particular student, whoever that may be you. You've got all the all the stuff that you've already done. And you've now allowed a day to kind of right the Sesay or a couple of in the in the again, because appearance that don't really know fully, how this thing works, but we're telling you now this is just as important, imagine if you've got a resume from somebody, and it was stout. And then you got a, a cover letter where there were misspellings all over it. The, the grim, the grammatical set of it was all to hell him back, and it didn't make any sense. Would you hire that person never, but the resume was stout? But you would never know that that's the same thing here. We've got to be able to make sure. With this really matches with the student is really going after and what they're really trying to do what they're trying to say and this is honestly why we've created and really enhance a special this year writing center and what that really is gonna mean for us going forward. I'm sell excited about our work in writing center. So I did a lot of Eddie editing last year with the essays and, and I'm still doing some editing. We still have some kids pumping out scholarship. Essays. Oh, it's it's been a super busy season and what I know from doing this editing work is how important it is for even strong writers to sit down with somebody and collaborate. So you just you know, a lot of times you have an idea in your head and it's just kind of stuck in there. And you can't quite pry it out to share it in the best way possible, you know. And you think that you've been very clearing explanation? And then you feel like you're too wordy because you've over explained something where, but I've come in and I've read it. I'm like, I think this is what you mean. But I'm not reading this on his paper until one of the nicest things about working in a writing center is having that collaboration having that chance to do some real sit down work with somebody and really go over the parts of your essay that you feel are your weak point. One of the nice things that will do them writing centers. We'll sit down actually before you turn an piece of writing, you'll fill up this intake form. You'll indicate how long you've worked on the essay what you feel strong points are. What you're worried about specifically. What are you most concerned about is it like do you just need to brainstorm new ideas? Do are you worried about the organization of the essay, are you worried about just the nitty gritty like punctuation, spelling grammar that kind of thing because I don't want to come in and told all over your essay when if you feel that your idea is, is where it's going and just knowing what it is. And you feel that you're struggling with really helps me help you so absolutely. And so, in that same vein all those things go into it. We've got a coal staff, that we're getting ready to bring on board with this, too so excited. I think I say that all the time, but I'm so excited about our writing staff. So we are bringing in some top notch people from the university from both the writing center, and we have this terrific journal, editor who's coming on board to help us with the editing that will do you know, the, the headed there's a lot of editing to be done. And one of the nice things that I think makes makes college liftoff distinct in this market is that we will dedicate an editor to you. So you'll have a writing center person who will help you bring one piece of writing from its earliest rough draft to it's completed product and there won't be three different people taking a look and giving you different ideas, maybe sending you on different directions. You'll have one person who will very be very streamlined, and you'll be able to reach out to them and you, you can either work. Virtually or you can sit down with them. There are a lot of different options, but the nice thing is that they'll have a good sense of where your ideas are, and what you're hoping to accomplish with this essay and they'll be able to take you to a completed product that you're very proud of. That's a, that's a good point. Because how many times of the three of us run into issues where the student is put their essay through five people mum English teacher? This person Johnny from down the street and then us and everybody gives their two cents in everybody's two cents thinks that they're two senses, the one that matters the most and. The students got love them. Don't know any better that that advice from Johnny down the street or from even from the parents, some side. I'm not a writer. I have no business Selami kids what to do when they're say no business at all. You know. So it's, it's, it's one of those things where it's like. You don't wanna send a eight people, truthfully a barely won a Senate through two, and that's the point of the writing center for us is that you can have somebody devoted that no one is already professional writer, period. That's what they do. They're, they're coming from a place where they're already editing collegiate level work on a day-to-day basis. And we want our kids to have collegiate level, work ready to go. That's one of the soft skills that we provide to our kids. Right. I totally agree Aaron and I feel like a lot of what happens to when you're essay starts getting passed back and forth, a lot of people and you got a bunch of opinions. Is it manifest doubt and this didn't themselves about the direction that they're going, so they don't end up feeling confident anymore? And as that was probably great to begin with, or it was on, on good path. And again, like the point of the essay is to show that you have the writing skills to do collegiate level work, and then you can Pona thoughts and skills in that particular way, truth is most of the people you pass through. Don't have that, you know that that's not the background. They're not coming from a place where the you know. Producing work specifically for college of that level in a writing on a database, again use myself, I don't so full team that does a great job of this and I get sick back in my phones, and you guys tell me what to do in that.

And on a side note, the voice of our intro that thirty guy is actually the voice of the Columbus, blue jackets. Yeah. He actually does all the all the work actually inside nationwide arena in the blue jackets on kind of like an awesome stork run right now. And there too stressful for me to watch because I have four kids and like that's enough stress on its own to say, the least because all the Bucek.

And I'm saying that in a nice way trying to at least that we could be doing so much more in all aspects for college planning because we don't have anything to compete against in the summer. So just one of the things that we re chatting for charting about before. This was just like even how do we best utilize college visits? A lot of our families are scared to do college visits because students there. Yeah. That's one of the concerns. I get a lot from families is that. Well, what we're not going to get like the real feel of the college. If it's not packed with all the kids walking around and between classes. But the thing that you really wanna remember when you're on a college. Visit is yes, you do wanna get the vibe of the campus and make sure it's right overall. And that you're gonna be comfortable. So you can be successful as a student there all that kind of stuff. But what you really wanna make sure of first before you even get on campus is what do you want to major in? Right. So what do you want to do as a career and that goes back to incur development work, which we'll get into later, which is a great thing to spend your summer doing? But before you go on those visits, you wanna have a direction. Right. You wanna know what you're actually going there? Four and already have some sort of an idea of what the campus has in store for you. Once you get there have great questions developed for people that are actually in the major that like teach in the major or academic advisors in the major that you want to go into because they're they're over the summer, right? Like teachers live there. All year round. There around and a lot of times not as busy to talk to you guys in the summer when you're there on visits. Yeah. I was thinking about you know, in my years at Florida state. I worked in the English department as an undergraduate and doing this school year during the academic year their professors in and out, but you know, typically, they're like where are the does that I need to do my class because it was the dough era. But nah in the summer, they would they would just linger a little bit more. They had a little more time. It was a little more relaxed. And I guarantee that when students came in to ask about doing an English degree at Florida state. They're always a professor were two or seven hanging around who could spend some time chatting with them because you know, summers easy, especially info hot Florida air conditioning office. People are just hanging. Room in the middle, Florida. You're you stay there. But that's the major point of the whole thing of visited campus. It's not to go see the pretty campus. The internet can help you with that today. Like, you don't really need to to do that. It's really about going and sitting down with what which both said it, which is sitting down with the faculty member for the program. You're planning going into spend some time in that building wandering around that building. I always loved to just go sit. And if I have a kid that's doing a college tour, and we go see if this kid's interested in Lexa pledge management or whatever and we need to go. See the business school go wander around the business school, you're going to spend two plus years in this building alone you need to fill out this building. Like, can I see myself here because how many times you've been in a place where it's just like, you know, what like get Bahir? Well, you've got some time to be able to freely do that in the summer where all the classrooms aren't filled, and you can actually, you know, take time to wander. And ask really good questions and you'll have faculty members full attention Jackley. That's the point like don't be afraid of not seeing all the students there. That's that's going to add to anything. I could tell you alive. State is a busy campus. Okay. That's done. What around downtown of any city. You kind of understand field. You're not missing anything if you don't walk around there. But if you go to a smaller campus, especially with four five six thousand students, you wouldn't even know the difference between the summer, and then in the regular practically it really wouldn't even be too much of a change completely true. Now. And also the. This is a real important point don't confuse a vacation with a college. Visit like you really don't want to confuse the two. If you're going to go vacation, like don't go on vacation to go to college tours. There are times and places to be able to go to college visits and things like that. And again, you can use the summer for them but bench show that the dedicated visits to go talk faculty members and things which often about don't just go to California and just like, oh, we can hit twelve campuses along the way go enjoy your time, California. Right. You know, that's really the case. Maybe if if California school happens to be on your list different story. Right. The, you know, the reason that you're going there before you're going there again like you you have to do proper planning for those college visits to say is this a school. That is good at my major academically is something that is going to make sense for me to go explore and not figure out. Oh, well, I like the campus. And then later, I'm just gonna decide I major is like down the road. Right. That's the backwards. Way to do it. If it happens that one of the schools on your list like you said Aaron is a long potential your vacation plan lines then. Great awesome. Go. Check it out while you're out there saves the money. But yeah. Spent under time like in California. Enjoy your time in North Carolina. Go to the beach, go to the mountains, do whatever it is that fits you. Don't come back to us since September say I have to add a lawn. Why do you need to add a line? I saw it when we were on vacation. And I loved it. True story that one of my students decided Adeline, and I couldn't see. What the hell was for this particular student? I'm sure Alon has wonderful things to recommend. But for this particular student could not figure out what the appeal was except that they have been there for vacation. And it was exciting. And it looked pretty so whatever it was about you. It's the ashville. Gosh, the mountains are so gorgeous. It's a liberal arts. School doesn't have that many majors does have engineering, homey. Really? You to be the kid engineer changing career Pascoe's study English. Like that thing out of these program. So really have to rethink that. Right. Not mocking people who want to study England. If there's a reason for you to go do it change it because you like the mountains. That's the point.

"Hey, this is Aaron green the owner founder of college stuff. Here's a preview of the next episode of affording college, but that's getting into the other part of this movie need to use the summer for which started hitting onto which is you know, there's a lot of college planning work that needs to be done, and, you know, nine months out of the year their school there's practice. There's all this stuff going on. And we do it then, but man is three months out of the year where that doesn't happen. So why in the world aren't we doing more of this over the summer? You know, the summer should it be our busiest season to be honest with you. We should have more kids coming through our program in the summer are starting in the summer because man, we've got the ability to be able to meet with them from nine AM to seven not just like from three to seven more or less. We can get a lot more done because there is no what's the what's the best way of putting us. No commend mental competition between the things you need to be doing far as research programs, which take work. I mean, it takes work to be able to do that affectively and calculus, you know, what I mean like we're not battling the two things at the same time which again can be done. And we do it every day and the same sense of like our kids do have planning work that they have to do in the air. But mercy can be so much easier done in the summer. I would say my kids who come in earlier on. And even if it is like if they comment in the summer, they're just a lot more relaxed. They feel like the whole prostate feel good. They're excited to have those meetings. Whereas. When your balancing AP ties and calculus, and your tennis lessons and your speech team, and your whatever then you've just got a lot of things in your brain that you can't possibly dedicate as much time as you probably wish that you could to planning for your future.

"Welcome to affording college with Aaron green founder and president of college liftoff. Thirty. Affording college. I'm Erin greenhouse of affording college and found of college left off college, DAV college planning firm. I started to provide solutions for anybody in everybody that's going through college planning, our has college planning needs. Our mission is to secure teens brightest future and save them and their families thousands of dollars in the process we work with teens throughout the entire college planning process starting with personalized one on one critic element work from there. We find the best schools to match our students chosen career paths and interest then offer support throughout the entire mentions process next, we work with families budgets to find the price that makes the most sense for their kids education all while insuring. It's the right fit today. We are hios premier college planning firm. I'm happy to say that where shooting for the world, by the way, and we strive to save time stress and money when it comes to your child's higher education. So that's a little background on myself and college liftoff, I do this podcast. I really want to offer families from solid vice when it comes to planning for college and higher education because there's. So much misinformation out there. The purpose of this podcast is to dispel the Mets and misinformation and really help families. So one of the most important, and yet overlooked aspects of how to do proper effective and successful college planning is really through creative element work. We talk about it all the time in this podcast. And no one knows that better than my coast today. Sarah. Hey, how's it going? Good. Good. Good and page. What's going on? How you guys doing today? So starting with Sarah your rockstar here. College liftoff you've been in visor here with us for about six months. You really are working with families and every step in this process, but you really have a heart for early teens and actually have a background in teaching. She's been working really closely with page college liftoffs manager client planning page has an undergraduate degree in psychology and a graduate degree in education teaching night. Page. You want said in terms of critic element, you're passionate about helping students recognize trained some passions. They didn't recognize fully in themselves leading to careers that they never mentioned or didn't really understand or know about at the time. That is that. Right. Absolutely smart. You should give me a raise. No. It's totally true. It's just amazing when we have students come in even the students who have kind of an idea what they think they want to do so often at something that somebody else's told them, or maybe it's a Crear that someone, you know, has like, I know for instance, I was going to get a degree psychology. I thought that with the guidance counselor did at my element school was really interesting, and it wasn't like from a deeper need to help people or anything. I just thought her job was cool. And that sadly, like no one really talked to me about what I could do with the degree with interested in in some of their area. Like, I just went to school thinking that is what I'll do. I mean hearing today in college planning. So yes, I'm helping people. Yes. I'm guiding them and my counselor in elementary school. I am not. So I think about how if somebody had sat down with me talk to me a little bit about what about psychology. What about guidance counselor work was interesting? I might have moved into a dip. Direction. I'm super super passionate about public health. And since this is the me show will just keep talking about my stuff. We see the same thing in our students. They come in. They might have an inkling or they've been told. Hey, you're really good at this. And so that's sort of informs their idea of potential careers, or at least a potential major and they come in. They sit down with us. And we do this great board exercise with them where we help them identify strings, help them identify even more importantly things they know they don't want to do. And then we look at their strengths and we look at their interests. And then we sort of paired together in Aaron what I like to think of his Aaron's magical formula and health that come up with this enormous list of careers that are potentially viable option for them. And then as we do the work that we do we sit down, and we we continue to research, and as time goes on we get rid of a lot of those careers because they aren't the best fit. But when it clicks with a kid is just so awesome. When they come in to the office. They're like, I love this thing. This is what I wanna do. This is what I love this. This is where I wanna go. What I wanna do? I'm. So happy, and we see it over and over again. I think if at once I'd be like, let's do it again, but pretty much with every student we work with they come in. And they're like, yes, this is that thing that I am born to do if there's a magic pill that we have. And it's not a magic pill per se it, it's it's just a good understanding of the fact that jobs aren't one thing. And I think we hunt suddenly try to put jobs and people and interest in a box and say, here's your one thing. You do this one thing you like psychology, go work and the school, but like you have to put in public health like these other aspects, and when we dissect not just programs at schools, but when we start talking about I setting jobs, and if you ask anybody shoot audience member ask yourself, what does your job really pertain? What are you really doing? And you're gonna come up with a list of probably ten twenty thirty things not two or three. And I think that's where the. Translation is really wrong in this is that at a earlier age. We think off we boil it down to these very boilerplate things that that's the best method in order to get them into. No, it's not it's about talking to students as an adult and having them expand the concept of who they are. And what the jobs are look that look like them and the magic pill to this isn't continuously adding more things to the list. It's about vetting through those things and taking the time to really see what it is. And that's where we get to those points where the kid can walk in and say, you know, what I've sift through all these things we started with it wasn't two hundred at four thousand five hundred universities worth of things. It was about ten to twelve and these are my interest in how they correlate to those. And you know, what this one's for me because I've researched have seen it. I've studied it. I've gotten job exposure to it. Now, I know that this is from me. And that's exactly right. And we have so many students come in and express that oh, they wanna go be an elementary school counselor like you said page, but the. Reality is they only see it from an external position as a student. They don't see the background that goes in and -cation that teacher counselor. How to do and the things that you normally don't think about that accounts are house to do. Right. And so those might be dealbreakers for a student if they actually understood those things so figuring that stuff out now before they even go into it. That's what we're all about idealism. His ideal perspectives of jobs, especially that's what we kinda give our students when their kids when they think about jobs, I say this to every kid walks to the door and every family because it's true most kids know, Dr teacher nurse. My parents who ex that's the extent of the world and truth be told they probably have one or two word terms for each one of those jobs, and they're so vitally in vastly different. But this is how and why we've developed L plus over the past year and trooper toll it takes time to do the stuff, and we've really seen that we really need to start at at at at an early age earlier age early high school, ninth and tenth grade is an fit for one student should be thinking about this on when our students are coming in asking these types of questions and are willing to spend time to do that career development at an earlier age so often I think what we talked to parents. But they're still young. They don't really they have no idea. What they wanna do. We say. Yes, that's. Exactly what you should. I don't want her to come in. And be like. Yep. On fourteen. I'm going to be a lawyer. Yeah. I get it that they're probably some kids out there who already have that in mind. But in general we wanted to help explore and really help just pare down a list. That's it's infinitesimal really tiny include it. So it's infinite. But

"Welcome to affording college with Aaron green founder and president of college liftoff. All right. Thanks thirty. So welcome to forty college. I'm Erin greenhouse of affording college and founder of college left off colors. Dav college planning firm. I started to provide solutions for anybody and everybody that's going through college planning has college planning needs. Our mission is to secure teens brightest future and save them and their families thousands of dollars in the process, we work with teams throughout the entire college planning process starting with personalized one on one critic felt and work from there.

We are high premier college planning firm, I'm happy to say that where shooting for the world, by the way, and we strive to save time stress and money when it comes to your child's higher education. So that's a little background on myself. And college off my do this podcast. I really wanna offer. Family some salad vice when it comes to planning for college and higher education because there's so much misinformation out there. The purpose of this podcast is to dispel the Mets and misinformation and really help families. So I'm sitting here taking a moment out of our busy schedule of college acceptance offers as we're kind of seeing them role in all over the place so many word letters. We're definitely in the throes of that. And plus it's promises. And so let's say at least high schoolers not exactly focused on college planning at this particular moment, but it is April, and it is autism awareness month. And we really want to shed some light on this topic. I mean, we're we're getting ready to go into the fiftieth anniversary next year and the purpose of autism awareness month is to educate local communities and raise public awareness about autism survey. Like, it's a movement towards really acceptance and appreciation people who are on the autism spectrum Bill, you really want people with autism spectrum disorder to feel valued because they do have special gifts and talents that sometimes go unnoticed by the general public. So great point. So with that I'm here with to my co workers, I'm here with Juliana. Are you doing and here with page? Hey, what's going on much? We're gonna we're gonna talk about this a little bit today in some of the work that we're doing even college lift off to kind of work through with our families. Absolutely. If if you don't take anything away today, I hope you understand is that there's a great fit for everybody in college. And that includes people on the spectrum, and we are just finding great spots for any student comes in who need some additional combinations. And there's no reason to think college is for me. That's absolutely true. It's it's one of those terrible stigmas that we've had for so long that college isn't built for everybody. But there's a version higher education for everybody and working through peace five fours autism at the next level. I it's just like working through any other expertise for be a sport. Whether it be musical instrument. It's just another component to the equation for us that we work through with our families. Absolutely. I mean, we definitely wanna think about fit factors. And fifth factor may be that you need ah dorm room that give has an accessible shower right because you have physical disability. It may mean that you need access to additional time for test taking or you might need a note taker there are lots of different ways that colleges can help accommodate, but there's no reason to think that that your need is. So very different that you can't be accommodated at a school. I think it's important to know that college is really a new experience for everyone. Not just students who have autism are learning differences. So it's pretty frightening. Honestly, I was pretty scared to go to college myself. But currently I'm reading a book that page gave me called parties dorms and social norms by Lisa Meeks, and Tracy Masterson. But it's about safe living for young adults on the spectrum, and they talked about a lot of things. I I honestly wish I would've known just going to college. So that just shows the similarities between. Students who have learning differences and people who are neuro typical that are also going to college they're going through the same things. So we'll take this back to even think about schools and hell that correlates to to students with learning differences droopy told there are schools that deal with better than others. We know that we don't still let that be the driver we still really want proper velopment work to be done and all those things. But in the end, we do wanna find the schools that do offer better accommodations for those students overall. But again, it's just another piece of the criteria in the same way that we're looking for the rat academic situation. You wanna make sure that you're paying the right price for all those things. Exactly, we never wanna send students to program. Just because they've got great accommodations. What we're seeing more and more as that. Every college is recognizing the need for great accommodations for all of their students a variety of levels. Whether it's like, a dedicated cafeteria for students with with food allergies, or whether it's making sure that all of their buildings are acceptable. So that we don't need to move classroom. Around. So that somebody in a wheelchair can take a class that they desperately need to fulfil a major working with a student on the spectrum now, and we looked at musk musk Ingham is a great school, and they have a terrific plus program for students with learning differences. And ultimately, it just wasn't the right fit for this particular student. It didn't really must didn't support the this units major, but not to say that must gingham is integrate fit. But it just reminds us like we would never send a Saito student. Let's go to the school because they've got a great accommodation program. Instead, we're going to find a great fit for your major. And then in addition, we're gonna find you the kind of accommodations that will help you be ultra successful. I think it's even more important for students on the spectrum or who have a learning to France to focus on career development work because generally, they do show amazing SCO in one or more ability domains. So we talk about in our general orientation that there's nine types of intelligences and the United States only tests for logical slash mathematical or lingua. Mystics? And sometimes that's not the case, I who are on the spectrum or have a learning difference. And sometimes that's not the case for just a neuro typical student general hill probably because for. But it really has opened the world up to students with learning differences. It's a very different world. It was even ten twenty thirty years ago in that regard. So, you know, I started my career as a lot of you already know or actually it's the people this table hurting. I started my career in in early intervention. I worked with a Bertha three population in Indiana. And I had a ton of kids who are on the spectrum, and that was really Bevis kind of early stages early dentition for a long time. We assume that we couldn't identify students autism spectrum disorder until they went off to school. And we notice that they were diverging from their peers. But in the time that I was doing early intervention work. We really they were doing much better work at identifying students early. So that we could do the kind of their base that would help them game in a seri- skills to go on to school and be successful. And even then we were having these really positive excited conversations about what we were hoping we would see for these students moving forward and feary rarely did we talk about college or higher education or even like a certificate program. We just we didn't really talk much about employment. What we really talked about was. Let's see if we can. Spend some time in the regular classroom. And now, I mean, the the conversation is just completely flipped around in the last twenty years. So we realized that as long as we build in the supports. That's units need. There's no reason to think that college isn't a possibility that you can't have a great exciting career doing something fun and meaningful and combines your purpose and your passion. So I think for a long time. We did we are notion of work looked more like a sheltered workshop anything. Most people are familiar with those. And now, there's no reason to think that that needs to be the outcome for any of our students. So people come in. They have ideas about what they wanna do. We help them refine those ideas to find the best fit, and then we find a great program that they they can go and who in their skills and go out into the world, all all such great poets. I mean, it really goes back to critic element has to be the driver and at the beginning of this and. Like, we don't have these box jobs anymore, isn't it? In fact, we don't even really use the terms of white collar and blue collar for that regard. I mean, the the sense of what we think of as blue collar probably the higher.

"Welcome to afford college with Aaron green founder and president of college liftoff. All right. So thanks deep thirty guy. Welcome to afford in college. I'm Aaron grain founder and CEO of college off. So cows office a company I started about ten years ago. As response to us to a problem. I saw on the market a real problem. We actually have in the country. That's the problem of kids going off to college without knowing what they wanted to do and take astronomical debt and the pants paying through the nose for tuition books for degree that honestly, they don't know what would do for them or what they what they do with to be honest with you. So I started college left off to help families and students to do this in a smarter way. So they don't have to spend six years in college take on more debt than they can manage. So they can find the right career find the right school that best fits them. The thing of always said, and it's on our website, very plainly, and I say, it's appearance every year, we work without any outside influences. And we will never promise it get your kid into a certain school. Your child will get into the school. That's right for them based off of there. Academic achievements based off of hard work, and we can serve these schools be great fits at what your kid wants to study what they wanna do long-term because we've done the work to really choose them for that particular reason, that's the way we should be choosing college. That's the way beginning done. And here we are today on March thirteenth thousand nineteen sitting around talking about a huge candle that just broke all over the news involving college admissions, it seems that this it seems there's a company in California, according to their website promised to do a lot of things some of which we do. Honestly, a lot of them. We don't do pretty plainly. We'll talk about why today as a matter of fact, their website says we partner with your suit with your son or daughter to identify their strengths unlock the potential choose the right college position them for admission and outline a course of study and extracurricular to lead to life as excess. Let me say we've literally never heard of this company before yesterday. And they're saying a lot of things that we similarly do as well, which is a little scary. But the same time they're saying a lot of things in that statement that are not what we do. And we're gonna talk about that too. So to talk more about this. I'm sitting down here today with our college liftoff senior adviser, Emma, and our manager client planning page, we really want to get into this and talk about this case. And explain the ins and outs of what's really happened here and offer some parents solid vice on where to go from here when it comes to working with your kid and working with your child on preparing for college and beyond. So let's just dive into it. So what happened what's really going on in this case? Well, if you're not following the news, if this is all brand new to you for some reason yesterday, a big college admission scandal broke out. Involving. But namesake wise, Felicity Huffman, William H Macy and Lori Loughlin. Good old uncle Becky, Becky. Jesse ambiguity? So tell us what would happen. They may want to kind of break this down from the start. Yes. So it sounds like this, man. William singer has started several college counseling companies ending with one that involved in the case. Now that we're all hearing about this kind of blown up, but they're basically having parents pay bribes, which he would set up and facilitate at their students into schools or they wanted to go, but they didn't necessarily have the grades for so far whole bunch of coaches at schools like Yale Stanford University of Texas Georgetown week for us. USC UCLA were charged such several teachers and test proctors were too and more than thirty parents, including the celebrities that you mentioned earlier Aaron and they were doing a whole variety of things like trying to get their kids recruited at these schools for sports that they had actually never even played before. Like, I was for crew had never actually photo shopped her face on. Onto another kid one. How disturbing is that? Just to be able to if you're the parent of the other kid and see here. About a picture of a water polo player, and I guess they like put their kid in the water with their arm up and the feedback negot was at a water polo player would never be that high out of the water. Just to the picture. Well. I mean, the thing is this thing goes deep it goes this guy took the measures of going through admissions counselors. He went through coaches, they went through testing facilities, bribing people left. And right. Bribing therapists to talk about this given going this far as and this is something we talked about behind the scenes about the whole five or four situation. But utilizing taking advantage of systems that trip you told if you want to say right now, we've kind of us on the honor system at this point that we thought would be on honor system, even though we know taking it's it's proctored. It's a pretty standard process that it's been a process all of us country for how many years we've been doing standardized testing. That's a very different pockets. But doing it for thirty forty years at this point it went as far as doing that it went as far as like, we're just just laughing about taking other students images in order to actually put them in there in order to get better. Admission. Not standards. That's the wrong term better emission numb or the ability to be able to get into school because the truth is it is easier to get into school as an athlete depending on the situation, pending on the sport all of that. I mean, let's be honest. We have schools like the university of Virginia and Michigan where we can barely get a four point. Oh, and then like, you know, how many football players they actively recruit and Ohio. That's just we know. It's better we know better than we know that that's happening. This guy's taking advantage of all of these things. That's really what happened here. He started a company multiple companies just basically to learn how to cheat the system on multiple levels crooning starting on profit. So that they get money launder effectively. So when people are making their payments to get their kids into schools, they weren't just writing a check to say brand name school. Instead, they're writing to this nonprofit, and then the nonprofit was laundering the money to the college. So so and then they were taking. A big tax write off the number of layers the number of layers. I mean, it's you have this monetary layer that was going through with this. You have coaches literally getting hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of bribes through this like some of these are even questioned whether or not the teams can join this tournament next week because of this therapist being paid off to Nord for kids to be so called have learning disabilities. So they can get extra time on ACT or SAT, and then actually bubbling in the answers for those particular kids. I think it was what Felicity Huffman kid scored four hundred points less on the PSAT, then she did on the regular C T. I is someone gonna draw flag here for this. It's it's, but again, this has been honor system thing for so long. We haven't question it's all of that money too. That was spent to bribe people do things ethically. That could have just been say donated to the university in the first place. They probably would have had a higher likelihood of letting your kid then so. I mean, there's multiple layers this. We're gonna talk about and and I'm going to hammer this part home more so later, but this is a case of fraud and corruption in a company like troops. All that's not a college planning problem. That's just an industry every industry has this as a problem like this is the Bernie Madoff of college planning like this is just somebody. That's taking advantage of a situation across the board. And I think that's what we want to talk about today, especially from RBIs. His we are college planners. I mean, we're make no bones about it. This is what we do. We've built a great thriving company where we work with students every day about this. But talking about this in winning pieces that we're talking about some of the things that he's saying, especially like position your students for admissions. All really says is that you're trying to cheat the system in order to get them in that sounds like oh did short position anyone to get them in because we find a good fit, and and the kids physician themselves all of our alliance when they apply the physician themsel-. And they are ready to to be joining to join their new freshman class wherever they land thing. I think we talked about in the more recent podcast to is why would you ever want to cheat your way into university where you don't per se Berle belong. Anyway, if you're cutting corners to try to get in somewhere that you're not even going to be able to be successful. What's likelihood the are able to graduate? Gotta cheat your way through that. You're just getting yourself way further into

"Hey, this is Aaron green the owner founder of college stuff. Here's a preview of the next up affording college. Just tell us like how things going can state. What are you studying? Let's started their gives a little your story. Well, obviously, I'm Madeleine I am I can't state right now, I'm studying visual communication design, which is basically along fancy way of saying graphic design getting to visual communication design was I feel like someplace that. I don't know. I would like to think that I would have gone there eventually, but I honestly don't know if I wouldn't have gotten there without college liftoff, which sounds a little cheesy, but it's true finding graphic design. I think I felt like just seemed like very RTD me. I and I was like, I don't know. I'm like, I'm not really an artist. Like, I don't I like, I don't know like. I mean, I like doing design would be cool. But like, I don't know. I don't think I would like talented enough for it. I don't think I have enough like artistic ability. But once we dug into like, what all the multifaceted aspects of what graphic design could be. It was really exciting because I design it's truly the place where like our meets like thinking. Yeah. I just think I was really lucky even just with like college of off like once we decided, okay? Like graphic design seems like it's like a good place to like start with once we got there. Like, I know there was so many different kind of like things within graphic design that I didn't realize like some schools are more artsy. And like it's genuinely just like art in like online forum like using like adobe products. But like we were able to find like what fit me best which was alert logical side.

"The least and tributo we wouldn't have any other way as we continue to build this process out. We really believe in it, and we really champion it every single day. And I wanna make sure that we have folks that are working in our organization that do champion that every single day and to that point we've now surpass over six hundred seventy five clients, and we've saved our families over thirty five million dollars in that timeframe over the last nine years. So thank you guys ton for being here. And we'll be hearing more from them and more from other college planning experts along the way from our organization as we go. Oh forward and also making sure that we're answering some of your burning questions also with a time left. I'd like to address at least one of those questions that we already have on the table. And it's one we get pretty often. And it's wise college so expensive so. There are a lot of reasons. None of them are good. I'll start there. None of them are too good. Interestingly the thing that we have to think about with college in the best way can answer. This is think about this in a way that you do with everything else in the sense of when you buy soap, or when you buy milk gas, but things are commodities and they're based off of supply and demand and what market variances really have colleges. Truthfully. No different than that. If we really look at when college started to spike now, it's been going up ridiculously over the past thirty five years, but we see an interesting spike that happened mid two thousand two thousand six seven eight where things literally went through the roof. What else happened time financial crisis? Actually, we win. And we started a depression. So what happens when people start losing jobs? They start finding trying to find ways of getting jobs at this point people flocked to. Education thinking with solve the job crisis problem that they really had. Instead all it did was flood the market with bachelor's degrees. Universities at the time were in you could say smart enough to understand that. This was now in demand. They can now charge literally whatever they want it, and nobody questioned it. Nobody's questioning even to this day was problems with people questioning the cause of education when the being asked to pay over seventy thousand dollars a year to send a kid to get a bachelor's degree. It's insanity. So that's where we see these things. Really, spike. It's really due to a supply demand issue at that moment. There are other things that have caused this to but think about if you've taken a recent high school or soon to be high school grad on a college. Visit how much the tell you about what you're actually going to get out of this from an educational standpoint. What type of job you're going to get they show you their nice, pretty dorms, and the awesome new gym that just built and all these other things that are basically candy and the decision making process with asking to spend upwards of seventy thousand dollars a year. That's not a real, honest perspective. And droopy told is something we do every day in our practices, something we're going to do in this podcast weren't covering that. We're just going to be pulling that apart. So the way you guys the audience can really see what's going on here and really have a clear cut idea of education's constructed. You hear me use term a lot. If you haven't already the economy of education, and how it's constructed and built in the fact that no one's torn apart before nobody's ever questioned..

"And nobody knows that. They are actually if the infant less do this right there actually hindering that student success when it comes to going forth in life. So, you know at dawn on me like college liftoff is the solution. What they do is actually the solution. So I went home, and I told Erin like you need to you need to make this thing you need to spread the word about this. And he's like well help me. So. Earlier. AM? So so that's why I'm here to spread the word about this to really help students and families understand that there's a better way to do this, and we are sending our students to college. So that they can be successful in life. But you know, we need to know what what that entails, and we need to do it the right way or else it's going to backfire we'll votes port of the bigger picture rate. And this is something we talk about all the time at work. But it's nobody realizes this. The college planning affects every aspect of what we do all of truth be told. I mean, we have a suit loaded problem where it's at one point five trillion dollars for credit. That's going to check every other market along the way, I mean second to mortgage debt like credit card debt is in the ballpark of this. So when we're talking about college planning, we really have to think about this differently. I mean, we're buying an asset that now we have on the books at one point five trillion dollars in total that in proper, budgeting and crew planning. It's the greatest hindrance for college. Graduate success as exist today. But people are starting to see this. I mean, we're starting to see this a little bit more and more. We talk about it. As what time in the morning to this conversation is still say it's like what five forty five in the morning to this conversation. That's an old Reagan slogan. I don't know if anybody ever remember that. But the people are starting to see that in. That's why we went to actually start adding members to our team this past fall we end up getting over two hundred applicants just for one chop hosting actually. So what what do we do instead of hiring one? We actually did hire three. We just went ahead and hire three instead to kind of really get us rolling. But we narrowed it down to the three applicants we really thought. Had a passion for this work and advance understanding what's really happening with college today. And as we talk through this podcast, especially in future episodes, college has gone crazy to say, the least and really have a good grasp on that makes a big difference. And that's how we really wanted to be able to add people to our team that really understood that. So I'm happy to introduce you to our team. Here are to move visors. We have Yoshi Juliane, and Sarah Yoshi, I'm gonna put hotseat I tell us more about what? Are you doing here? Why do you want to be here? What what what would drive your passion about this work that you're doing? All right. Aaron so I think the answer this question I have to really talk about my background little bit. So I went to a high of state and I ended up with a BS anthropolgy and minor in biology. I think the key words here really are ended up because I don't I don't think that was quite something that I consciously decided to do, you know, the one thing I wanted when going into college was really just to do something I was interested in and I mean answering via totally fit the Bill, but as those are liberal arts, I kinda got exposed to a bunch of different disciplines, which for better for worse. I found a lot of things interested in and maybe some things I might have been interested in more. I mean, I'm happy with my path. I'm happy to be here. And I'm also happy. I was fortunate enough to have an opportunity to teach rod last year in Japan. But now I'm here, and I just wish wish that had some knowledge about the world of work and the world the school because that's really what I think's important..
