Why Having a Business Mentor is Essential to Success
"Today. I have two guests. My guests are kevin harrington and mark tim as an original shark on the hit. Tv show shark tank. The creator of the infomercial. Pioneer of the as seen on tv and co founding board member of the entrepreneurs organization. Kevin harrington has pushed past all the questions and excuses to repeatedly enjoy a hundred times success his legendary work behind the scenes of business ventures has produced well over five billion dollars global sales launch of more than five hundred products. And the making of dozens of millionare's twenty of his companies have each top two hundred million dollars in revenue. Martyrdom has been a serial entrepreneur an exponential thinking practitioner for almost three decades. He started more than a dozen companies. Several of which have multiplied imminent sold. They are the co authors of the great book mentor to millions. Thanks so much for joining me today. guys be here. Thank you a great to be here. Awesome so mark. I am going to start with you and ask you to share selvi. Would you think are important lessons that you learned from heaven in your mentor mentor relationship. Well kevin Kevin was kind of the dream. Mentor for me. You know he was he. He became my guide in my own. Entrepreneurial endeavors i had had a successful business multiple businesses. But i kept topping out at a certain level and when i looked at kevin as a shark you know i'm like he's taken over. Twenty businesses dobra hundred million dollars. He could really help me to scale and so to be candid. I had to give the best pitch. This guy's heard over fifty thousand pitches. And so i went to kevin and said hey look i know your time is valuable. I know that You've got a lot of wisdom you could share for me so if you would be my mentor. I'm gonna make this easy for you. And i'm going to become your student. And that was a pitch that he hadn't heard before thankfully and he said yes and so he became my guide in my entrepreneurial pursuits. I learned you know. Probably the two biggest things i learned was about following the eyeballs. He calls a aggressive curiosity at the short hand for that is follow the eyeballs. Where are people looking. The chances of success in business and scaling is if your business in the path of where people are looking in. So i started putting more my efforts behind commerce because as you can tell right now. We're shopping from home. That's herat and so it was perfect. Timing for me to invest in that category. Because wow my business this year. I can tell you that i'm actually on my way to my first one hundred million dollar business because of my mentorship with kevin and then he also taught me a concept about the dream team and the dream team. Here's here's the mistake. I was making and by the way so is ninety. Nine point nine percent of everybody in their business. I had this crazy notion that i was hiring people i could afford and you know. And that sounds so intuitive. And that's what we normally do. When we're growing our business. But kevin has this concept called the dream team where he told me i would rather have ten percent of the time of a cfo that could take me a hundred million dollars than one hundred ten percent of the time of a cfo. That wouldn't get passed a million and that's the concept of who you can afford often caps you out and taps you out versus putting a dream team in place sometimes which you don't even have to pay them if you incentivize them the right way but if you put a dream team in place that can take you where you need to go than likely. You're going to get there. And so i would say aggressive curiosity dream team to the biggest lessons i learned from kevin but most of all i took what i learned from kevin. I started applying it to home. I started treating family like the most valuable business in the world. And i found out that aggressive curiosity works at home and my ultimate jer. Green team is my family at home. And i started seeing results. That are beyond anything i could ever imagine at home. And that's when we wrote the book mentor to millions. That was one of the commitments. We made we teach all the lessons. That kevin taught me but we try to end every chapter with how you can take that lesson home to your most valuable business and bring them your best and your first instead of your last in your least oh my goodness i just love that and i have to say that i love this concept of aggressive curiosity because i am all about Well you may notice that. The end i remind people to stay curious because it is so key and i love this dream team concept i get that so many people hire who they think they can afford and they miss out on who they need to get their business where they want to go so kevin. I'm assuming that you think every business owner should have a mentor. Is that a fair assumption. Absolutely i believe let's put it this way if you're a startup entrepreneur or startup business owner. You don't know what's coming up. Kobe through a lot of wrenches in a lot of businesses for many that were some of the most successful business owners were were were. It was like pulling the rug out from under them right. This is is business life. It were were throwing curveballs every single day. A thirty years ago one day my my bank shut down my merchant account and grabbed two million dollars out of my account. And i didn't know what to do. Well i got some mentors. That helped me through that. And and because i was never a finance guy and so people have different strengths and and entrepreneurs though tend to a lot of a lot of entrepreneurs her soul entrepreneurs they take pride in being the the entrepreneur to do it themselves to be their own boss. What they don't realize is that you know when they were inside that corporation with that big structure and all those people you know there was other people that were doing the things that maybe they weren't good at and so now that they're responsible for all parts of the business. It's now time to make sure that you've got the right support team as mark and i call it the dream team to help you succeed in that and a dream team can be one or two or three or some grouping of mentors and coaches that you can bring together so i think everybody needs one

I appreciate that and the excitement is shared Thanks for having me today. And like i said very excited to be speaking with you and to have our work featured on your podcast. Absolutely code eight. Now dermot sensor is is. I mean just fascinating evaluating skin cancer in a much simpler way. one on learn more about this as the listeners. Do too but before we dive into that. I love the know more about what inspires your work and healthcare. Sure will i think first and foremost helping patients Is really my inspiration for working in healthcare hands down. I think that everyone faces at least some challenges and frustrations With their job and their day to day work. And i think our company and me personally you know no exception to that would be called work but dinner the day knowing that if you're able to overcome those challenges in your start up and your product is successful knowing that success will benefit hundreds or thousands of patients that is incredibly motivating for me. And i'd say in line with that. I think for entrepreneurs you know. The common expression is that we're supposed to dress unmet needs and as as you've seen obviously from from from all your your work in the podcast. Unfortunately there's no shortage of unmet needs in healthcare and many of them are very large. Ones that fixing not only greatly benefit people's health but depending on the solution also oftentimes i think has a potential to sit health system money and of course patients ultimately pay for parole healthcare whether it's directly or through their employer for private insurance or through taxes that go to medicare and medicaid For sure yeah. And you know we were experiencing so much change and you know. The epidemic has accelerated that change in digital medicine and telemedicine remote care what you guys are doing fascinating and skin. Cancer is a huge problem. It goes unaddressed like undiscovered. It's way too late and so tell us a little about what you guys are doing to add value to the healthcare ecosystem. Sure sure and yet it really is a big problem and you know a clear. Our product is not yet approved by the fda for use in the us but as you mentioned in it is available and certain areas abroad. Who just announced that. Dermot sensor received seamark for sale in europe as well as regulatory clearances australia in a new zealand. So for the u. s. Yeah so that that's been exciting milestone for us and in the us we hope to be approved next year and then after that to start. Adding value to healthcare system in a couple of men was to just address your question so our our company's mission is to improve patients access to effective stink cancer checks as you noted. Writing cancer is very common. It's actually the most common cancer in the united states in melanoma the number one cancer killer of young women fortunately effective effectively skin cancer can be successfully treated if it's detected early enough unfortunately the average wait time in the us dermatologist's appointment once a two months and because of that and other cost access issues. The majority of americans report having never been checked her skin cancer in illness. Small fraction of americans do so annually. Which is direct recognition for many of us So our our main objective to fulfill our mission of improving patients accessed effected skin cancer. Sharks is really empower. America's hundreds of thousands of frontline providers primary care providers like family physicians internists clinicians at retail clinics to more effectively. Catch skin cancer Study showed that primary care providers they're not dermatologists and that that they only correctly decides to refer biopsy a malignant lesion as little as fifty four percent of the time but melanoma fighters survival rates. Go from well under fifty percent for stage. Four melanoma to high nineties for stage. one mellon all not so virtual helps detect nominal. Earlier helps these primary care providers which by definition frontline providers right so the patients often in early. That would be huge. So so detecting melanoma earlier. It's this to help a bad dad. Be a huge benefit for patients. Survival and also treatment costs relate stage. No no law can be over a million dollars whereas stage one mellon on the treatment typically just cost a two thousand dollars

Thanks so much for joining me today brian. Thanks for having me diane. I am thrilled to have you here. I know that you're a big believer that most professionals operate without a strategy. And i'm wondering if he would elaborate on that please. yeah. I i think the experience that i have not. I'm not personally obviously it. Was this way personally. But as a as i've worked with so many people now over the years that there's a lot of professionals out there who we can grind our way to a certain level of success when we kind of combine. We combine our skills and our talents. Were good at what we do. Kind of combine that with our work ethic and you know even flying by the seat of our pants we can achieve a certain level of success. But i still think even those people are operating without a strategy meaning at a certain point you hit a plateau where just working more hours or doing more of whatever got you. They're sending five hundred miles instead of two hundred emails or whatever it is it just you realize that's not doing anything and you know when when i help these people it's usually because they don't have a strategy and and let me be specific what i mean about a strategy meaning. They haven't figured out in advance. They haven't done the work in advance to figure out where they get the biggest return on investment for their time right and their mental energy. And so that's what. I mean by strategy. Meaning you are very intentional about where your focus is so you can get the biggest bang for your buck. Yeah boy. I get and i agree with you. I i it so interesting that they it's like they hit the ground running and they just keep running and then one day they stop and go. Okay hang on a second. Where am i going allergy. The analogy i like to use is like you know you have think of a fly right. I mean flies are good at flying. We literally call them fly right. They're fast they're nimble. I don't think anyone doubts that they're good at what they do. And their work ethic is is uncanny but you know one fly winds up dead on the window sill despite its talent and its work ethic and other fly just turns its audie slightly right changes its focus of where it applies that talent and skill and it flies right out the door and so what you learn from these flies in and what you learn over time is that being good at something and being successful are two different things and again you can be good at your trade. You can be good at what you do and again just kinda grind your way to that certain level success but if you wanna go next level you need a strategy.
This Green Bay Quarterback Idolized Alex Trebek
"Last weekend the world lost an icon we have learned that longtime jeopardy host. Alex trebek's has died after. Waging a brave very public battle with stage. Four pancreatic cancer so remembering the man with all the answers. Now extra bet you showed up in our households more consistently than any relative. Alex trebek's was not a game show host. He was like a friend today. The athletics match schneiderman on the connection between jeopardy host. Alex trebek's and packers quarterback aaron rodgers as a kid you grew up watching him in idolizing him and spending every weeknight with him so then to see him in person here that iconic voice in person is really special for rodgers star combination having a connection to somebody s the meaningful stall. But when you meet that person they have the president and the charisma that you have hoping they and definitely athletic. I'm davidson and i'm under sculptor. It's friday november thirteenth. And this is the lead so matt you recently talked to aaron rodgers about role that jeopardy has played in his life. What was his experience with the show. Growing up yeah. He told me about how when he was a little kid. He'd be staying at his grandparents house finished dinner early. And you retire to living room for jeopardy and grandpa's in his grandma's hurt sure i'm on the ground and that's just kind of a we. Did he was so devoted to this show from a young age and then he kinda grew to appreciate it more and he's a really intellectual savant. I guess you could say big trivia buff so that kind of drew him to it and alex trebek's became one of the iconic voices of his childhood a connection with certain people for my show and i've been fortunate enough to meet a few of them but it's kinda voices on my gv. I'm talking about john. Men summerall about how frank. And then on. Monday nights before bob barker on prices riot as he got into the league he said even if there would be obligations tend to in green bay on weeknights. He would record it. I mean literally friends of mine and visit dated. Six o'clock at my house is by had any friends over. If i was dating someone. If i had any family in town they knew that six. Pm in green bay was jeopardy time. So they'd better not make any other obligations so he was a real deal jeopardy diehard what stood out to him about alex trebek's as a game show host. He said really his cadence and his sense of humor and his ability to not make fun of but have a great back and forth with. The contestants are really enjoyed the often awkward coming into the first commercial. It'd be the contestants is reaction to so many of them is what made this show so great. Now just the thank you often have some nerds out. There were really nervous about what they do. It's called mary. Core hip hop it murdered. Core hip hop. It's people who identify as nerdy rapping about the things. They love video games science fiction having a hard time meeting romantic partners. It's really catchy. And fun losers. In other words. I know teasing you. And roger said that nature of trebek's the one that was playful with the contestants and related to them a little bit rather than just being a robot reading off of a sheet because it was his job for thirty minutes every night was what drew him to him so much before he became a professional. Football player did aaron rodgers do trivia. Was he the guy at the bar at trivia night. I'm sure he was. You know he's been on a couple of game shows. You probably know it then on multiple shows jeopardy hundred dollar ear man. Eight small felt things on a billiard table lopez jennifer lawrence i. I'm sure when he went to cal berkeley and he was the big man on campus there as the quarterback he was still going to trivia night at bars. I mean he challenges himself intellectually in a lot of different ways. I did a story with him last year seeing if he could name all thirty seven players. He's turned touchdowns to in his career. Rodgers could remember the exact route. Some no name tight end ran in two thousand and eleven. Because that was the tight ends only touchdown pass from rodgers so it was really impressive. Seeing how much he's able to remember and his abilities as a quarterback. I don't think it's an exaggeration to say his ability to process information and remember kind of the tendencies of certain defensive. Players definitely transfers over to a game show. Aaron got the chance to meet. Alex trebek's five years ago when he was a contestant on celebrity jeopardy. What was it like for him to meet the game show host. He grew up watching yet. It was big for him. Because you think aaron rodgers you know. You wouldn't be florida starstruck by anyone. This was in two thousand fifteen when he met. Alex trebek's super bowl. He'd already one to mvp's but aaron said he was the one of the few people that left me starstruck. And i think to be star star can have stayed combination of having a connection to somebody. That's that's deep. Meaning for a stall jack but when you meet that person they have the presence in the charisma then you kind of hope they would and you definitely did i so excited trying to keep it together as a kid. He grew up watching him in idolizing him and spending every weeknight with him so then to see him in person here that iconic voice in person it was really special for rodgers and he just loved more so than anything. How down to earth travek was how conversational he was. It wasn't something like okay. You're here on my show getting your position and i'll do my job. He was the guy you think he is on tv. All the things that make you feel like you care about the conversation. I'm talking about old school stuff. I'm talking about striking yet. Shaking your hand looking. I contact in the conversation. I felt like present in the moment. So aaron rodgers this trivia. Buff jeopardy fanatic. It's finally on the show. How did he prepare for it. Was he like in a room going over tape. His preparation for this show was unbelievable. He was watching. Not just the ken jennings and brad rudders of the world. But he was watching random contestants just to see how they approached the game. He watched tape of other contestants just to see where they place their hands to buzzing quick enough did they stay in the same category. Did they go. Two hundred four hundred six hundred or did they bounce around to try and throw off the other contestants so he came in with a very set strategy especially to go up against mr wonderful kevin o'leary from shark tank. That was his main competition. And i'm not gonna say he wanted to win it more than he wants to win a regular week ten. Nfl game against the jaguars like they have coming up this weekend but he took this very seriously show was a dream. But you don't think we're there any highlights or any surprises any categories where aaron rodgers did surprisingly well. Yeah leader of the pack. He obviously did very well in that in three thirty four bc. This great guy. Lead thirty five thousand greeks into persia. Aaron was alexander the great correct twelve hundred. The one question he did get wrong. Which was the final jeopardy question was it showed a black and white picture of two men riding old school motorcycles and the writing question i believe was what company made these. Aaron is looking pretty happy now. Did he come up with the correct response when he wrote down who are earned standing young and the answer was hardly and davidson and he got it wrong and then there's that brief moment where alex trebek's says well let's see how much wagered and rogers had a wry smile on his face and kind of smart looking at alex. Trebek's like i already know i won. This caused him too much. No he is the winner today. Charity the tape and he said he still has the little trophy. They gave him after winning celebrity jeopardy and that big fifty thousand dollar check the money that went to charity after he won. He still has those in his house. Check now with me. Checked and little choking and i asked him. Where does that day on. Celebrity jeopardy rank among non football ventures. Because he's been on game shows he's been courtside huge sporting events. He's the face of state farm billion dollar insurance agencies. He's done a lot of fun. Commercials there he said. The liberty jeopardy is right up there. The opportunity to compete against astronaut turned senator and super successful businessman. Plus really special. You know getting those nerves friend. He walks out turn just for.
"There's a drink they make in chicago that boasts about how few people actually enjoy. Its bitter wormwood flavor if bars even had a bottle of it. They probably never opened it when the manufacturer ran a social media contest to come up with a new slogan albeit an unofficial one. They got suggestions like when you need to unfriendly someone in person turning taste. Buds into taste enemy is free years. And what soap washes its mouth out with but believe it or not. It's catching on my name's moxy and this is your brain on facts pop quiz. What is the most popular liquor in the world. While you mold that over here's a quick primer on a small segment of the panoply. That is the world alcohol. Low alcohol beverages are made all over the globe by mixing something containing starch or simple sugars with water adding yeast or allowing wild yeast and bacteria to invade and leaving it to ferment wherein the east eat the shiver and because ethanol and carbon dioxide these beers wines and the like can be made from any fruit grain and even some tree saps like palm and birch. Anything with natural. Sugar will do in colonial america brewing with pumpkins and other winter. Squashes was actually fairly common. But if you take your beer or wine and distill it meaning to boil it and collect the condensed steam thus removing the water and making the drink stronger. Now you've got something that's where we get vodka brandy whisky and all other drinks of spiritus nature. That's what we're talking about today. The weirdest and most wonderful who humanity has come up with on the whole. I am ruling out craft beers. Because will you know how craft beers are even trying to restrict searched liquor. The google machine kept popping up craft beer. after craft beer beer made with pizza or chilies or fermented shark. Fan or bull testicles goat brain or stags semen not a word of ally. Didn't make any of those up but back to the question. Of the most favoured firewater there is a lot of whiskey in the world for sure but with all of its subcategories consumed across the us and canada and of course ireland their credited with inventing it. After all though they called it ishiba the water of life. No it's not whiskey looking. They drink a lot of vodka in russia. That is true but it's not vodka you know where else they have. A lot of people china one point. Four billion to be specific. And it's the chinese spirit buys you. That is drunk more than any other. And i'm guaranteed be mispronouncing that because i have not been trained in any inflected languages. Sorry it's the world's most popular liquor by volume selling more than ten billion with a b. leaders every year more than all the vodka and whisky in the world combined by you is a vast category of clear yet complex spirits that have played a prominent role in china's drinking culture since the dynasty.

Names aren't as big a force in by shoe as they would be in the west where you might swear by jack daniels and never touch jim beam or you only drink hennessy. When you're out restaurants and families all do their own styles and it changes a lot. Regionally brand names. Her barely a factor. But i do want to mention one reaching fung. The brands only been around since two thousand. But it's declared itself the oldest distillery in china because its parent company stumbled upon the ruins of six year old facility when they were undergoing renovations in the ninety s. There technically correct the best kind of correct. Ju can be divided into six subcategories divided by their fragrances. Honey layered light rice sauce and thick. None of which would help me make a decision. If i was buying it in the shops it said that western pallets tend to favor the lighter and sweeter fragrances. And it's not very surprising. Baiju is rare in the us though you can find it in certain thoroughly stocked bars and it might be a while before it catches on people who have tried it often describe it as tasting like sweaty socks or rotten fruit and other things. That don't make me wanna reach for one. In other words to the uninitiated. it tastes weird at best. If we're gonna talk about spirits in asia we should probably address the elephant in the room or rather the snake lizard or baby mouse.
U.S. breaks COVID-19 record for third straight day
"In the US There are more than 9.5 million cases of the Corona virus. And more than 234,000 people have died. 17 out of 50 States set record one day increases in covert 19 on Thursday, and the outbreak is hitting the Midwest hard. Illinois reported nearly 10,000 new cases Thursday alone. The number of hospitalizations in the US roast over 52,000 Thursday it increase for the 11th straight day. CBS Jim Priscilla tells US hospitals in some areas, they're overwhelmed several hospitals in the Metro ST Louis area. Have suspended elective procedures because there's so many people hospitalized. They need the bed space, so they're doing that rather drastic step but again. Covert 19 cases and hospitalizations are rising rapidly in the ST Louis area. Speaking of hospitals The county health director in El Paso, Texas, that border city Has said over the past few days that cases air rising so rapidly and again hospitalizations in El Paso that he feels that the hospitals the medical system, the health care system. Is it up breaking point? Very dire situation, apparently in El Paso. And there's also been a situation of kind of a bloom of covert 19 cases from church, right. This is going on in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina. Allison that is Charlotte. Where the county Health Department now says there have been eight deaths nearly 190 confirmed cases. And at least 15 hospitalizations related to a Corona virus outbreak linked to a weeklong church event about a month ago. This was an early October Hundreds attended the gathering at the United House of Prayer for all people in North Shark. So again, health officials in several states actually have been watching for any potential cases related to this worsening outbreak in Charlotte, and one more quick question I understand things are going to be a little different at grocery stores in Chicago and some other places over a new plan to get groceries out under covert 19. More and more of us or shopping online. In fact, the industry, Ellison says in August online grocery sales are up 75% from a year earlier were obviously changing of many of us are changing how we shop for food because of Corona virus. And more more grocery stores are increasing increasingly using floor space to fulfill those digital orders. Albertsons, which is based in Boise, Idaho, They're the nation's second largest grocery chain. They're testing the use of dozens of large temperature control lockers and select stores in Chicago and California for customers to pick up what they ordered online and also I think it's worth noting that Albertson's is also starting contactless payment in all of its 2200 plus stores. I suspect Alison as this corona virus pandemic continues, We're probably going to see more more. Stores and various change retail chains doing that Same thing, CBS Jim Priscilla

"Fast form. It's now time for this week's scholarship tip. Today scholarship tip I'm GonNa talk about. Knowing. What scholarship judges or the scholarship committees are looking for? Now often scholarship applications are evaluated by several people. There are several pairs of eyes and is typically a committee form with multiple judges. And here's one thing I want you to know. They're not looking for a well rounded scholar meaning student who has done everything. They're looking for a well rounded scholarship program and this is really important because a lot of times students will participate in a lot of activities thinking that it's going to impress maybe college admissions, officers, maybe even scholarships but really they wanted see passion and they want. To, see depth. So achieved this goal to become a well rounded candidate. You want to focus on activities that you enjoy and even try a few new things that you're interested in. But over time you WANNA go deeper. So I have a process that I walk my students through and it's called learn serve lead, and so you learn something by participating being a participant in a club were activity. Then, you serve in it. So once you learn something, how can you impact the life of another person with what you've learned and then you lied maybe you lead a project or you step in a leadership role as treasurer secretary President or Vice President or project manager of of some sort, some type of leadership capacity and I find that when students. Move through this way they Discover. An deeper level something that they're really interested in and it's easy to talk about something that you're passionate about that. You enjoy on your scholarship and. Wing you've gone. Through various tiers are various levels. So I I want students to know you don't think that more is necessarily better in terms of a lot of activities. but really think about what it is. You're interested in and begin to pursue a few things and really work to get to a leadership level with those activities. and. If your activity is in line with your major or your career goals, that's great. It doesn't have to be necessarily on key is really to find something that you love some something that you're growing in where you're making a contribution and going a little bit deeper now again. It doesn't mean that you can't have multiple interests but at some point, especially around that junior year and definitely in your senior year, you really WanNa step into a leadership capacity in whatever it is that you've been a participant in for quite a while.

"About a week ago through October the first the facet. . Has a planned outage? ? This allows for the new updates to load in the system and it will open on October first. . Now, the , fastest cycle lasts <hes> twenty one months from October one before the school year begins and it closes on June thirtieth of that year and each year their system changes and processed guidelines that can cause issues when logging in or when processing your paperwork, , and that is why I always recommend waiting about a week or two because the irs website might be experiencing some technical issues and you really want them to work it out. . <hes> there is no big rush to log on October one or even. . October. . Second to do anything the money's not going to run out in a day or two and I want to talk about what you can do two things to really important things you can do during <hes> from now until you complete your Fassa that will <hes> help get you moving in that direction. . So I know a lot of times families here that you know the money is on a first-come-first-served basis and that is true. . <hes> the funds that the schools received they allocate based on you know as their students <hes>, , submit their applications and acceptances or made. . However, , they're not gonNA run out of money in a week or two. . So waiting is always in your best interest <hes> because. . You know in the past, , there have been <hes> issues with the data retrieval toll <hes> when the federal government went to a different shorter tax form, , I believe that was twenty eighteen there were issues or with the two thousand eighteen cycle. . So you just want them to work those issues out and you don't WanNa be the Guinea pig you don't want them working out on you so. . No rush you know maybe put on your calendar for October fifteenth or even October thirtieth but no rush. . So. . Here's what you can do. . Instead two big things. . Number One, , really start to gather all your documents. . So everything in place ready to go so that you're just in all the data. . So one of the first things you want to do is get your F- Essay I D, , and you can create that at f. s. a. <hes> ide- dot E dot go the have this link in the show notes. . And both the student and the parent will need to create their own FSI ID and you keep it private because it's your electronic signature. . <hes> and you will use this. . Your student will use this for all of their years of school and parents. . You'll use the same idea for your current student and if you have other students after this student who use that same day. . Also make sure you have all social security numbers, driver's , license license numbers and alien registration numbers if you're not a US citizen. . Now you'll want to gather your W. Twos, , <hes> federal income tax returns, , any other records of income earned. . And for the parents income <hes>, , you want to have the most tax return. . So for this cycle for the twenty, , twenty, , one, , twenty, , two, , you're going to have your twenty nineteen tax return. . <hes>. . So just having on hand even though you will most likely be using the data retrieval toll there's some cases where you shouldn't use it, , but if you're using it but it's still just really good to have it on hand as well as ten forty forms <hes>. . <hes>. . If. . The Student Is Independent Bank statements and records of investments and just records of untaxed income, , and this leads me to my second thing that you should be doing and that is no the schools you're you're planning to apply to so. . Begin to think through the list of schools you're interested in attending. . <hes> sure. You . add colleges you're considering even if you haven't applied yet <hes> most likely students have not applied by the time you know it's still September. . So most likely applications are not in. . An for many students are still waiting to sit for either the sat or act. . So you know that application may not be in yet. . or You may not have heard back. . But even if there's a slight chance that you'll be attending, , that are applying to that college you one to listed on the fast form you can always remove it later if you decide not to apply. . But if you wait too long if you're waiting until the this spring or later to at a school, , you could miss out on financial aid. . So my number two point is really to think through your list to build your college list and get those schools are on your list on your essay on the Fassa form. . So that they receive your results electronically when you do submit. . To help them to determine the type of a that you would receive. . Okay. . Now, , you can list up to ten schools at a time on the form if you're applying to more than ten schools, , this is what you do. . So you'LL WANNA give it like a week or two be a week or you know for the school to retrieve the data and pull it off, , and then what you do is go log. . Back in Click on the homepage log into your F s you're facil- account and you'll be given the option to make corrections. . What you'll do is just remove a few of the schools on your list and then add the additional schools hit submit and then it sends it out again to those particular schools. . So again, the , two things that you can do while you wait and don't rush for that October one deadline. . I'm number one, , gather all your documents that you're going to need all your supporting documents and number to really think through the school list because just completing it that step one but part of that completion process is knowing where's the information going and <hes> what what I don't want to <hes>. . Excuse me what I don't want to have happen is you know students kind of complete it and forget about it. . In terms of the later lying for school maybe November or December and forget Oh, , I forgot to add that school to the list. . So really keep a list of the schools at you're planning to apply to <hes> and make sure that they are on the list <hes> on the fast form. .

"By now, , school has probably started for most of your students. . And It's a mixture of how soon going back to school some are going back as. . You know as if nothing has really happened and they're going back to full days summer doing hybrid days based on their last name. . <hes> some are. . Partially online some days and in the school other days and some students are fully online but. . No matter. . How your student is going back to school. . <hes> one thing that I wanted to talk about and I like to do this <hes> these kinds of talks in this series at the beginning of a school year kind of our back to school series today I, , just really WanNa talk about <hes> helping your teen focus on their homework and when I share three tips because according to the act research students who spend less than six hours per week at home during homework are nearly twice as likely to be low achievers. . Than students who are considered high achievers so I JUST WANNA share to some practical ways to help your students succeed and you know again, , it's going to be a little bit more challenging but they either just general ideas and this is really important because what students often don't realize is that when they're applying for college in the fall of their senior year, , schools are looking back grades in their ninth tenth and Eleventh Grade Year. . So those first three years of critical you know. So . you really need to think of it as sort of you know the <hes>. . Kind of the on ramp where they should either maintain their grades or improve their grades and having a plan in place to do that will make all the difference. . So tip number one really say clear goals and expectations <hes>. . What are the expectations? ? For each class. . <hes> you know and began to discuss those with your student in terms of <hes> you know what needs to be done when taking a look at over a big projects getting those on your calendar. . And having a discussion around what's a typical amount of homework each night I would say sit down and really talk about it and carve out a schedule <hes> to make sure that your student is doing their homework and <hes> maintaining a a study schedule specially if again, , if they're in their junior year <hes> and they had their psat coming up in October. . You know that's another element that they're adding on top of their regular homework. . Number two I would say set up a proper study area. . So to really help your student, achieve , their goals, , they're going to need a place to study. . It may be <hes> a kitchen table dining room table. . <hes>, , but you know, , well, , let area quiet area. . <hes> place where there are few distractions or the fewer the better I know can be a little bit difficult especially if some parents are home. . But you know having a dedicated space <hes> with the supplies that they need to avoid any last-minute trips to the store or <hes>. . Any kind of delays is really helpful. . So knowing you know what that study area is going to be what you need, , and then having a few things for projects because even in the virtual environment, , there are students who will still be required to do project. . So get those poster boards, , markers, , glue sticks, , scissors, , tape. . You know all those things that you're going to need to do those projects and to present them virtually. . and. . Then the third thing to really help your student focus on homework and doing well would be for you to step in when needed. . So. . Don't be afraid to step in if they're struggling <hes> especially, , if they're online I mean it can be very difficult, , very challenging and so making making it a point to check in regularly to see how they're doing <hes> and maybe scheduling additional time outside of the classroom environment where you may not have needed to do it for particular <hes> one of your students <hes> but if you need to step been. . Definitely step in and what I find some of the ways were students routinely need. . The extra support is with time management and study skills. . It's really know how to manage their time in this this kind of either virtual space or hybrid, , and then study skills just general study skills and these kinds of skills were carry them not just through high school, , but into college and beyond. . So again, , you know if if your students help. . Consider getting a tutor <hes> or some type of support to help them so that they don't fall behind again I can't stress enough but you know really doing well in the ninth Anthony Eleventh Grade will set them up well for their senior year as applying. . For Colleges.

"As the coronavirus pandemic requires many schools to continue online students are wondering, , how can they get extracurricular activities? ? And in our scholarships segment I'm GonNa talk about what is a scholarship weekend? ? Welcome to the Scholarship Shark podcast I'm Pam. . Andrews your host as a college admissions consultant I believe that getting into college does not need to be complicated for confusing and paying for it doesn't need to be costly and you're here because you believe the same join me each week as I share advice on the college admissions process as well as scholarship tips. . So let's get started with today's episode. . The impact of Corona. . Virus is not just limited to the classroom. . For some students starting school this fall you know they're still going to be online doing classes virtually. . A hybrid where it's a few days in the classroom. . And a few days at home online. . <hes> but many schools are choosing not to do their extra curricular activities that require gathering large numbers of students together, , and it's easy to focus on what we can't do. . But in this episode, I , WanNa talk about ways, , students can get involved. . And although you may not be able to do some of your traditional activities I'm GonNa just share three things and three comic groups of things that you may think about doing. . As we continue to navigate through this <hes> pandemic. . So you know you may not be able to participate in school sport or in your marching band or be a part of your theater production. . But you can still participate in extracurriculars while you're at home or even if you're doing a hybrid model, , you just have to be creative and it's really important that you don't neglect this part of you for several reasons number one. . It's a great way to distress to <hes> develop a friendships to strengthen your leadership skills to gain self competence <hes>. . Extracurricular activities have all kinds of benefits, , and of course you know applying for college, , you will want to list what you've done in this academic year on your college application. . So along with your high school <hes>, , your grades your class rank if you've been able to sit for the sat or act. . <hes> and you're your recommendation letters and your essay, , your activities, , your extracurriculars, , what you do inside of scorn outside of school were really show how you spend your time and what are you interested in so think of it as initiative and interest. . So I wanted to share. . Three things that you can do if you're not able to participate in some of the things that you've done in the past. . Because I don't want you to think while I'm not able to do what I would like to do or what I've done last year or the your prior. . So really what can I do? ? Not Share three three things that you could possibly do so. . Number One, I , want you to think about what did you do in school? ? In the past and how can you either do it online? ? Or? ? If your school offers it. . So if your school is currently offering something, , how can you participate for example, , maybe your school still has student government and you're not meeting in person, , but you can still participate online. . So don't neglect those in school opportunities that are happening virtually. . So see if your school is still offering some of the club's activities that they would normally offer, , but just in an online format. . And you know again think through what you've done in the past what you looking forward to maybe participating on your school newspaper or language. . Clubs Academic Clubs <hes>. . You know again, , take a look at those and see what they're offering online. . Now if your school is not offering it online. . Why don't you lead it start the initiative may get with a couple of students and offer that particular club in a virtual setting <hes> just simply reach out. . To Your School, , the advisor who helps you coordinate your activities and maybe write something down and began to share your idea. . Now. . As, , you begin to think about things that you do in your school, , and if your school is having it, , if you find that your school does not have it again, , maybe you can offer it in a virtual world

"I before finding a college and thinking about things to consider when fighting college is really important to start with yourself. . What do you value? ? What type of academic environment will lead you towards your goals? ? And then it makes the process that much easier to focus on the school. . So to help you share five factors to consider as you're thinking about a college. . So number one focus on the major do you know what you already want to study if? ? So that's great check to see if the colleges on your shortlist of that specific major. . But if you're not sure what you want to study, that's , okay to just make sure that the colleges at you're interested in have a wide variety of majors from which to choose that way you can explore and. . As you're discovering what it is, , you wanNA major in it will make it easier to land into that major without adding time to the clock and you can do this by clicking on maybe the academic tab on their website to take a look at their majors or <hes> contact the office of admissions source. . If there's a way you can get on their mailing lists to get a paper brochure for your specific major go through look take a look at it take a look at majors, , minors concentrations, , but see what they actually offer in terms of the program. . Now the second thing is the financial factor. . So what is the cost of attendance? ? You know all the cost associated with going to that particular school, , the tuition fees, , the room and board <hes> all let's involved with attending that particular school. . But you also want to focus on the money that they offer. . So check out the scholarships and I'm GonNa talk about that in today's scholarship tip. . Now don't let the sticker price scare you because often what the published price is depending on your personal financial position as a household. . Most likely, , not be what you pay <hes>. . So it's it's important to <hes> build a list, , but I want you to focus on that financial peace and you can do that <hes> with some researches well. . The third factor, , your student activities. . So think about what you're currently doing at high school that you enjoy. . Do you want to continue to do some of that? ? Maybe if you're part of your high school's band, , do you WanNa be a part of your colleges band or maybe you're looking forward to try and things that you weren't able to do in high school <hes> maybe you live in more inland and you want to go to a school. . Close to the beach or close to bodies of water <hes> because you want to study something related to marine life and and so you're gonNA explore things that you never could really do. . But take a look at their activities, , think about your interests and find a college that allows you to explore and pursue those interests. . So not just the academic focus, , but those <hes> extra curricular. . So student activities, , and again, , you can check out what the school has to offer by going to their website and taking a look at student life and activities. . You know maybe doing a search if it's not real easy to find with a TAB but. . One of the best ways I like to do it and I tell students my students to do this. . is by checking out their instagram page because what I find on the website. . Those are sometimes staged photos or very they're very scripted. . But when you go to an instagram page, , that's real life that shows you what's happening it's in the moment and even if it's done by the school, , if it's schools instagram page, , they're capturing actual students doing whatever it is. . that. . That particular activity is and so that's a great way to find out what some of those student activities are. . Now. . The fourth thing focus on the campus amenities. . So those are some of the. . The <hes>, , the extra things that you're going to spend your time doing or participating in, , and that would be residence life. . So where are going to sleep and live dining you know are there campus options if you're in a city area or an area where there are many restaurants in a college town or you know <hes> It on campus dining? ? What are some of the meal plans available? ? Do you have to use their meal plans? ? <hes> do they accommodate special diets such as Vegan or gluten free <hes>, , but back to the residence halls? ? What type of halls are there singles? ? Doubles doubles, , apartment styles how much do they cost? ? WHO's eligible are their communities where you are grouped with the students who are like minded may by the same major or same special interest <hes> some schools call those living learning communities. . So do they offer that kind of experience in their residence hall? ? Then, , also may be some additional on site services such as tutoring and students support. . If you have a student who needs a little extra help <hes>, , do they offer support for students with learning differences? ? So finding out what are some of those? ? Amenities medical facilities is there a place on campus for medical care if your students should get sick or your students should have an accident maybe they follow their bike and you know and hurt themselves what do they do? ? Where do they go? ? So <hes> some college campuses have on campus pharmacies there have <hes>. . Banks, , grocery stores, , <hes> counseling centers. . So find out what some of those <hes> onsite services are, , and then is there a place not for just organized sports in terms of soon activities, , but for recreational opportunities so maybe there's a REC center or a gem or they offer group fitness classes or they have a you know a basketball corridor you know just some of those other recreational opportunities available because you're gonNA spend just as much time outside of the classroom. . As you are inside and so. . Your mental wellness <hes> where you sleep <hes> where you eat your eating options, , all those things are just as important.

Parents and deans is your place to gain practical easy to follow advice on the college process as well as tips from pass, scholarship winners, and now here's your host of the scholarship, Shark podcast Pam Andrews. Welcome back to another episode of the Scholarship Sharp Podcast I'm Pam Andrews your host, and in today's episode. I'm going to talk about student activism. So today is part one of a two part miniseries on student activism today I'm going to talk about the history of student activism some way students can get involved and then next week and Linda share a few scholarships for student activists, so there's a lot going on in our world right now, and at first you know early spring or late winter it was corona virus, and now more recently has been the rage killing of George Floyd by Minnesota police officer in a summer. That already felt uncertain. Some students are countering that feeling of helplessness with action so student activism is not new and has long been. been a catalyst for political and societal change, many movements have advanced because of student action and colleges the place where you can find like minded friends who care about what you care about, and it can also be the place where your beliefs are challenged, so let's talk about the history of student activism in order to help students understand their role as activists in this continuum. It's important to know the history of student activism at different times throughout the world while many students most likely learn about civil rights movement of the fifties in the sixties in history class. It is unlikely that students were taught activism. So, let's go back in time to the Sixteenth Century fifteen o seven to be exact professors at the University Padua wanted to cancel the student celebration of Carnival. That's their equivalent of spring. Break instead of partying. In Venice, students were told to ten lectures on aristotle now Venice Italy had had a reputation for political stability, a strong balanced government and I'm going to read you an excerpt from the book titled. Ritual and Renaissance Venice written by Edward Mirror a professor of history and Italian at northwestern university, so check this out. In January fifteen o seven, the serious-minded minded faculty at the University of Padua decided to lecture through the Carnival season, thereby to eliminate the liturgically unnecessary but customary vacation. Hoping perhaps to save their students from folly, and from the beckoning festivities of nearby Venice. that. Hope was a mistake. The students rioted smashing the classroom benches and beating any tutors who dare to discourse on Aristotle or gallant. Carnival was a time to be seriously playful and gaily disrespectful effect. These students fully appreciate it as most everyone else except their unredeemable e prudish or those who obliged to care for public safety and morality. The students of course did not want to miss the fun, but they're. Riots revealed more than disappointment. For an attacking their mentors and destroying the seats of their labor, they were themselves partaking in the Liberation of Carnival. Exercising their wills against their masters, turning the world upside down in a way they would rarely attempt at any other time of the year. So we see this as an early form of student activism and apparently at work because they didn't try to cancel their spring break again. So let me share a few other student, activists, moments and examples. There are many other times of of student activism in the US and around the world where students learn more about understanding, their role is activist and just a few include the Vietnam war protests. TNN Square Arab. Spring and Occupy Wall Street. So, let's talk about why student activism. Why is it important for students to get involved well activism help students connect learning to the real world, and it allows them to make an impact while adults may question the passion behind the students participation in a 'cause students, protests continues to be a way to make societal changes students who are aware of and concerned about the wrongs they see in society and view they view activism as a way to ensure that their voices are heard and a way for them to make a difference. Now. Let's talk about what colleges think about student activism. Well, research has shown that students engage in activism. Re educational benefits such as developing. An inclination to continue in their political aspirations well into their mid lives. They acquire a greater sense of social responsibility and identity consciousness. Studies have also shown that beneath contentions and dissatisfaction around protests, students on campuses with a culture of Activism and advocacy, experienced increases in critical, thinking civic engagement and a commitment to a larger community. Now some campus leaders, maybe student activism as dreaded fires to be exterminated where others view it as flames that need to be fanned, and for colleges that welcome it. They recognize that by expressing dissent. Students are constructing ideas that one day may provide solutions to some of our nation's most urgent and complex problems, so I'm going to Lincoln article by cataracts. Does Com titled Twenty Twenty Best Colleges for advocacy and social activism because of spending four years with other politically minded. Students is really important to you than it's worth the investment in time to find a school. That's a good fit. K. There I'm interrupting today's podcast episode to Tell You about college admissions academy now if you have a high school student, who is in the class of twenty twenty one.

"Give you the ultimate bottom line which will include the money? You have to pay back in the money you don't. I'll have to pay back so I think it's really important understand that. And here's the strategy. I I like US students. You know when you know what the institutional aid is has been awarded. The grants are for the year. Now you've got this issue. Have A gap. Let's say there's there's money that's you know that still do. This is your new target. That you're continuing coming to work towards because their scholarships offered all year round. So you don't stop. You'RE GONNA keep applying you're GONNA keep submitting. Keep doing the work so that did you can chisel away at whatever that gap is so. That's really important. Another piece of the financial financial aid It will list the awards so it really should break out any direct Subsidize any unsubsidized of student loans. You should see that and it will list the worksite. And again I wanted to ward didn't cycles of work study even though that dollar amount is listed on your financial financial aid award letter you're not automatically given that money. That's the maximum amount that you're eligible to earn. The operative word is earned. That means you need to apply for Ajab. The your campus. Most jobs are on campus in some cases where the jobs are partnerships with companies outside of seeing that on campus and some off. Campus jobs. But you need to find out. Where are the work? Study jobs because you have to apply for the job and you've gotTA show up you've got to do the work and then You want to find out. How often do you cut that check? Is it once a month once every two weeks. Typically every two weeks But you know again. I don't want you to think like. Oh it's on the word Get it no. You have to apply for those jobs so that was just a quick rundown amount of financial aid award letters understanding four letter. Some really key pieces again. You're expected family contribution understanding the total title cost of attendance knowing that there are direct cost indirect costs. And then as you look at the cost Deduct your gift aid. Which Joe Scholarships and grants knowing that your grants could fluctuate On what else to say When it comes to scholarships what I like? I've seen it both ways. Sometimes sometimes it's listed. Sometimes it's not but Sometimes they will list on the award letter what the student needs to do to maintain that scholarship so so maybe the GPA requirement in the credit hours. 'cause they're not GonNa Award you all that money if you're You're down to maybe six credit hours as opposed to full course for slowed twelve credit hours or so or your grades are not up to par so you just WanNa make sure I suppose typically on the website. It's nice when is also listed in our award letter so so the students can see it and know what that is so again. Those are just a few pieces I think should be on every Were ladder at. They're going to be different front ways. Sometimes they're just simply listed flat. You know simple flat-out super simple easy to read. Sometimes you may have to kind of go through it a bit or reject to the financial aid office. Oh another tip. Turn the page over you know. Sometimes they actually will information on the front end. The back I've seen vocabulary cavalary words or terms kind of any glossary on the back or or even more award information so there really is no stander. Dander that's what I think really wants you to understand however in spite of there being no standard. I want you to know what to look for on any award award letter. And then use a spreadsheet of Google sheet in Excel Doc and began to compare the cost of attendance subtract any Gift aid to see. Okay so what's that difference and so you know before you're paying deposits before you making final decisions You know are we going installment plan. Are we expecting student to work. Part time after school in the summer to contribute. Are we expecting to continue to apply for scholarships like what is that expectation nations when it comes to the money. So that's that's a lot when it comes to the financial aid award letter so before closing closing today's episode. I want to let you know especially not you look at those financial aid award letters in and seeing that there is a gap. There's a difference out we have. Our program are still should boot camp and opens around this time of the year We call it so you're in now.

"Current college student or if you fit one of the other special fields or special circumstances that are mentioned in today's episode. Definitely check it out and of course I I'M GONNA say up front. You want to show this with a friend because this organization is giving away a lot of money to a lot of different Folks so you don't want to miss it and you want to share share the Information so let's just jump into today's interview with Miss Jennifer wise as of Mensa Foundation. Hi Fly than welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having me. I feel great. I'm so happy to be here. We're talking with you about the foundation. Move them so before we jump into the foundation. Can you tell the listener a little bit about you and your background. Sure so so I am a board member on the foundation's board. I'm the secretary also the scholarship liaison but didn't start out that way. I got involved in this scholarship program. I as scholarship judge and then increase. My activity is the time went on In what really motivated me was that I read an article that was a about a toddler who joined Mensa. And the you know the article itself. So who's complimentary. Comments were decidedly not complementary and my experience in Mensa with immense foundation. UNAMERICAN men set had been that there plenty of altruistic people who really genuinely want to help others the same as in any general population elation of people and so I wanted to demonstrate that regardless of Mensa affiliation Many any of us want to do good. And that's really what the MEZZA foundation wants to do that. I you know. The perks of the MENSA foundation is to advance understanding and recognition of intelligence in to empower individuals to develop develop their abilities for the greater good. So we believe I believe in a world values intelligence we believe that that makes the world better and then my personal background scholarships is that I should have had have more of the Irish had had use my mother. I love my mother. But she didn't know anything about scholarships and unfortunately urgently my family situation was really unfortunate I it rained my college savings. Justin time for me to start college. And so I I took off and it was compelled when I started to take out large student loans. Both for Undergrad and then for graduate with school where I studied literature highly lucrative field despite being a high performer academically I didn't receive or I wasn't even notified about a lot of the scholarships that I might have been eligible for including the MENSA foundations ship program. So Oh I'm in my thirties. I'm a millennial. I'll be paying off my student loans for years to come. The general public including financial aid and advisors is generally unaware of the men's foundation scholarship program and it's inclusiveness. So almost anyone who can write a lewd short essay is eligible. So I'm motivated to help both gifted individuals and those who sat rounds disadvantage than financially for college the latter part is not dementia foundations objected. But that's my own motivation for continuing as a as a board member and and doing as much as I do. It sometimes sometimes takes a lot more time to do it. Well but it's really important to me and if fight heard from myself years ago I would have less student loan debt than I do now. So and all tate so some listeners may have heard of Mensa. It's the largest oldest high accused society in the world Founded in England in nineteen forty six expire couple of guys on a train the MENSA foundation is the charitable arm of American Mensa. And it's the American metal is itself a national man said in an international organization says so the one commonality the among us is high IQ otherwise it's a highly diverse group and are scholarships also reach a highly diverse group. NON-MEMBERS members children's book authors astrophysicists. People who come from families that are not well off financially and vice versa. So Yeah we represent all all kinds. The people that I'm really proud of that. Yeah that's great so that and that ties into my I guess my next question or my first question. Russian than Scholarships Jeff for MENSA members for men fat as well as madman members. If you can talk a little bit about that sore I'd be so oh happy to. Yeah that's That's a bias. That a lot of people have winning started out as a scholarship chair. Excuse me when I was living. We Lost Angeles. I I would you know I had every other Friday off of work and I go into schools and talk to the You know financial aid and scholarship counselors and I'd say let me tell you about the men's foundation scholarship and they'd say oh. I'll post this flyer in our math department ahead or they just they have to set of assumptions about Mensa. So it's not just for stem. It's not just for and members. We have only three scholarships out of almost two hundred that are restricted to just Mensa members. the no one has to qualify that the Awarding scholarships is based solely on the merits of short essay. Five hundred hundred fifty words if you are. That's it not based on financial need a very. Few of the scholarships are restricted by you. Know the academic field you're pursuing or Some kind of life situation so it really is for for everyone. You have to be a fulltime student for the upcoming academic year in an accredited institution in the United States. That's it yeah. You know. That's what I really really like about your scholarship. In addition you know not just for members but nine members but one application one essay and you check all the boxes bet apply. I thought get any easier than that. Ryan Yeah Yeah I mean in that we. It's a really low bar of entry so Yeah that's why I say like I'm kind of an evangelist for ownership in particular. I go into grocery stores around this time of year at the the the the cashiers often trader. Joe's like there are on their break around this time and I it let them know you know if you don't have too much on Thanksgiving or you just need to like duck out from your family conversation of the table. Five hundred fifty words or fewer is a short short essay. It's easy to do. There's no penalty for submitting something. You can try again from one year to the next if if your essay. SC doesn't make it this year you could submit the same one next year has heard having it rejected because you may have the same set of judges but It's it's just so simple that it's It would be a sad to lose the opportunity just to try. Yeah so speaking of for student who submits and does it. When if you've been to share a little when you see some of the disqualifying mistakes that students make or applicants make that could easily be avoided? What would some of those big? Thanks so much for that question. So my background is on a master's degree in literature and I used to teach English composition Get to the things that I think. Generally a student or were an applicant submitting a scholarship as a ought to be mindful of in a moment but regarding our scholarship program we say explicitly in instructions to not include identifying information and routinely every year we go through and eliminate those essays in. It's it's really too bad ad because some of those essays are outstanding but if I see our scholarship chairs he's a student's name Mike parents so and so something that would enable a judge in their area to read through the essay and say oh I know who that is without having to look online then it has to be eliminated and I think that's really unfortunate but it is important Horton to read the rules so for any scholarship. You're applying to make sure that your not missing something straightforward. That would be a a shame to be disqualified for that As far as general advice regarding scholarship essays I think it's important important that I wish I've known this when I was writing scholarship essays. I didn't have a lot of practice at them. Be Mindful of the fact that the judges themselves human beings. They are often working to meet a deadline. They stack of essays. So if you were essay essay is rife with remarkable syntactical punctuation errors. It makes it easier to eliminate and harder to hear what it what it is you have to say. So before you hit the submit button Have a relative or a good friend. Read over your essay also make sure that your arguments are truly.

"Just kind of on the low end. It's about eight weeks so yeah I mean all that to say that we've had had students who've done. The entire project won prizes and done it as a in a single weekend but those same students students who came back the following year and spent I don't think they spent the full eight weeks that we talked to medicine. Bet they'd much like two or three weeks and they actually moved up from mentions into. I think I thought process the following year and and Yeah so there's lessons. Students will learn as a big going through That is A. That's a pretty generous time to our job but does additional resources like you said for the if going back and watching past winners maybe don't watch. Don't stop by watching Grand Prize winner because it is so well done that. Maybe that's intimidating especially for students who have made a documentary. Go back and watch auto mentioned the maybe pick. Ask someone from your age group from your You know city state and and If as folks from from your region of one prizes and take a look at some of those dimensions because the honorable mention fantastic videos in an himselves at probably less technical technical than than some of the the more the first second third prize winners hopefully students. If they watch a few of those matches can start to go through and say I can do that. Ah I know I can do that. I can do much better than what they've done here. And the next to formulate their on either says there's really no rhyme or reason for what constitutes a winning Entry Beyond Meeting Those base refunded expand on your part of the students between Ernst Film on those things that's nice that's great and so for the listeners. The deadline is I know. It's coming up in January January twenty twenty January twentieth every year just because it's in US elections. It's inauguration day so we keep January twentieth and that just gives us enough time to really judge all those videos and announcement as early spring and one of the things that we do beyond adopt the cash prizes for the students. A few different things. We do for the top prizes so if a student Wins Grand Prize through Second Prize and they're twenty one of those total again it gets into the four divisions and we just talked about the second bras we actually would force that can process per division than we do one best price per division and so that's up to two twenty one videos Math is complicated. But if you look at a student Kamloops on they'll make sense outta those talk. Twenty one actually air on the network and as I said before anything that is on the network is often lives on c. span's forever serve being broke ninety in households across the US. so that's a fantastic antastic perk for those students in top twenty one op. But beyond that way doing press releases every student of anticipates and that's going out to their elected officials it's going Out To folks in that state and beyond that we also seek to do School assemblies for for all students as well so we travel a country without knocking team. And we'll have the education team. We'll get out there as well do the big prize check calf ceremony. So that's obviously a fun event for the kids we. It's great for us. Because in many cases we get to see these kids in some cases kids participating from sixth grade all the way through twelfth grade and we get to see them grow up on camera. We absolutely love that. Ah beyond the cash like I said it's lots of new opportunities in terms of potentially appearing local media but beyond that it's that's a great thing thing that they can certainly list on that Jeff occasions as well absolutely so. When does the application cycle open scholarly generally open so we every yeah? This is an annual competition so we typically announce the theme in the summer so usually at the end of the school year. We have the theme. On the website we formally roll out the competition and Usually right off the Labor Day and that's really just out back to school which all of the information is up on the website while before that during the summer assistance afrita really gets not whenever they want to say any students listening to this right now. I mean we're in November. Right now and the deadlines not until January slept plenty of time to get started on this and and do a good job so it would not discard anyone dissipating. Like I said we've had students who've done this nat- single weekend in one process if you're thinking about it definitely Dive I've been if you're interested in more information. They can contact us on every page on. The the student can website scroll to the bottom left and has that contact information and we're more than happy to answer any student student teacher questions family questions as well. We're happy to do that. And if you override vice wherever we can Resources will help over those as well but Yes so the the application process really. It's not an application is just whenever they finish the documentary they submit an entry form and they post link so they they can hosted Lincoln number of ways they can either hosted through Google drive they can push through youtube as a public or unlisted link or they can submit it to us through dropbox link or something like that just we need to be out on the view the video and we need some basic information. The only information collected from the students is what the name is. What at the age and grade is just so that we can put them in the correct division and then beyond that just a contact phone number to contact email no other personal information beyond that the only reason why we would use that information to contact them with regards to the student can entry whether they want a prize or if they didn't win a prize we let them know that at the end as well great? This has been great. Wow this is great for the listeners. They've got time to think about it. What I love about this so many things I love about this? The one thing I love a a Lotta Times families will say well. There's nothing for you know less your high school senior. There's nothing you can do and I love how you said. Some of them starting sixth grade and continuing continue ends especially actually for students who are civic minded. Maybe they love speech and debate so they can take a look at an issue from both sides kind of approach that you know that you know that their argument from two sides. So you know how you have to kind of pick. Both sides of the of the The prompt and share it's great research skills. I mean it's just so many wonderful things Involve working together. If you're strong in one area partner with someone who Does well in the film it can maybe do some of that production work mark If you're thinking about majoring in film or you're thinking about history as you know it's just so many so many wonderful things about this opportunity. Which is why could not wait to have this interview with you and to share it with others because it's just it's it's so great in and like you said if you're listening right now it's not too late? There's time to get that To work on and to get it in so yes thank you. Who's been great great so before we end if you can This is my the question if you could. Just listen could be any mass guide. What would you be and why some of the we talked about this briefly before the interview and some of them were pretty fan? I don't know not can be as fat. I don't have anything super prepared Being from Australia we took that as not necessarily a mascots for we don't really have university teams. We do have mascots. I went to University of Virginia in the Cavalier was out mascot at around Why who's also known as a big fisherman and the wife who is one of my favorite fish to catch and eat down? It's such a beautiful fish as well so that would be pretty fun one to dress up as but just going back to Australia when I was growing up in a straight was before the Internet before. These things that facilitate competitions nations like they have right now. I went to school barefoot had fishing as a class very small town and rural northern Australia on the Great Barrier Reef and one the few as well sort of exposed to American culture was through. TV and and and and movies. And I always think back to the movie pulp fiction which is probably a little bit more advanced than some of the listeners. Who are watching right now? But there was a character John Travolta's character wore a t shirt. AMAC Goes University of California Santa Santa Barbara. They had the banana slug. That's pretty cool. That's awesome thank you so so before ending yeah for the listeners they can go to. WWW DOT student cam. Dot Org T. U. A. D. E. N. T. C. A. M. I'm dot org and you're on twitter facebook and instagram. There's one thing I wanted to say to as I was thinking about it So many great things on the website from past swingers. But I love the behind the scene photos that you know. Take take that shot when they were interviewing someone. I saw a couple of those behind the scene so just so many ways for students to kind kind of showing not just their final project but even thinking through some of the the pieces the inbetween untouchable something. We love. I mean it's that's that's actually additional cash prizes too. So that's five hundred dollars to two students was being behind the scenes again just like you said. It could be photos from the production of commensurate editing the documentary conducting interview if they can Smith that via social media an email it to us and just one more thing I was gonna say to. This is the the sixteenth year of the competition. One thing we've been doing is going back and like you said we've had students who participate every year from Sixth Grade Participated Multiple Times in the competition. And we feel like like we get to know these kids but one thing we did. This awesome was actually reach out. Made a concerted effort to reach out to these kids and see what they're up to these days.

"And again, really focus on maybe a specific event because you don't have a lot of words and you wanna be very wanted, just get right to the point, you don't have to cover everything, but you want to pick one thing and show. How have you been committed to either heritage either your community or the society, and they allow you to define it? How do you. Fine community. Maybe you're part of a unique community. Maybe you're part of an adoption community or an ethnic community, or maybe you're part of a hearing impaired community so pick your community and then focus on maybe a specific event or really how you're committed to that community. So a few final tips before closing when it comes to applying for scholarships. Go to each sponsoring organizations website to read the scholarship requirements, you want to go to the original source, checkout their eligibility requirements was the deadlines, but also look for other clues. And you can find clues do they mention past winners. Do they feature those winners do they submit their winning video, or they're winning essay or maybe an interview with the winner? If so, take the time to watch the video to listen to the interview or to read a the expert or the full scholarship essay that one that will help you prepare, take a look at their about us page, who is this? Cering organization. What's important to them? What's driving this initiative for them to give money that will provide some information to help you prepare number two carefully? Craft your essay it's. And what I mean by that read an answer. The essay prompt don't just copy and paste, your college admissions, essays, personal statement and plop it into this one, especially if the you know, you're answering the question about what your curls are in your, your aspirants. I know a lot of times when high school seniors are working on their essays. They're very tempted, just the copy paste copy paste copy paste. But listen, you gotta put thought and time into it, because if the sponsoring organization is offering money at the very least you should put some effort into applying and into winning. That's the least you should do. Otherwise, why should they award you the money? Now they're gonna to it to the person who's going to do the work. So simply. I'm not saying you can't reuse and repurpose some of your your content because your story is your story. That's not what I'm saying, but I want you, sometimes you may have to reword it or rewrite it or come from a different angle. So I want you to carefully craft your essay thinking about the prompt thinking about the sponsoring organization. My next have get organized with all the details. So make sure you know what the eligibility, requirements are and any submission details. Maybe you can Email it only, maybe it has to be mailed in postmarked by certain date. But you really want to know what all those details are so that you don't miss any of those important details. And finally, in the show notes, I have a few links to help you prepare was interviewed for an article with affordable colleges online, where I talked about multimedia scholarships and resources.

"Episode of the scholarship shark podcast. I'm Pam Andrews, your host. And in this episode we are talking a little bit more about mooks massive open online courses. So in last week's episode episode number eighty nine I spoke with Jared Carter who? Manages the entire process for mooks offered at his place of employment and he just shared the history how he got into it, and it was such a fascinating topic. That after that interview, I knew I wanted to dive in a little bit deeper and share this information with you because again, it can be used as a strategy in the, your college application process, not so much to help you get in. But in terms of helping you identify where you might wanna fit in, what's a good career path. What kind of courses do you enjoy? So I'm going to jump in and talk about all of that on today's episode. So a Mook a massive open online course and you'll see it just often spelled M, O C in all caps, all capital letters, but is pronounced Mook. So a Mook brings together huge numbers of individuals from around the world to help them. Learn through video tutorials activities. And discussions on any kind of topic. Just a variety of topic. This concept was developed by George in a Canadian educator and Steven Downs. An information architect in two thousand eight that's when they introduced the first move a free. Course that was open to the public like a traditional college course, the information was delivered by a professor with a distinct difference students, and tens of thousands of them, listen to the professor lecture through a series of short online videos and to test, whether or not the students grasp, the materials, they offered quizzes assignments, and then you had to post to a discussion board and that's really the birth of the Mook that's when it started. So now there, there's so many websites and providers, and so many universities that are offering mooks. And so I wanted to talk with you about how your student can use a Mook too. Two. And when I say, strengthen their application, it's really strengthen them and help them under help them understand, and identify what's important to them. What do they like? What do they not like before they jump in and go all in maybe pursuing a major in pursuing a path that may not be a good fit for them? So I wanna share some, some strategies in some tips and ideas that you can do right now. And especially summer's coming up in a few months, and that might be a great time to jump into a Mook or two. So part of the appeal of the Mook is that it's open depending upon the course you can jump in at any time they're often self pace, many most actually, most are free, and these are offered by all kinds of colleges and universities. And so a moot can be a very low pressure way for your student to find out if they're interested in subject before committing to a particular career, path, or university, course now some ways that you can use a Mook. Help them focus on. Maybe some college readiness skills. If they're in there may be junior or senior year even after you graduate. I mean, this is something they can do after they've graduated from from a high school. And they've got that summer between high school and incoming freshman year. Use it as a time to really work on your college readiness skills. And I'm talking about your math, your language your science. Whatever it is. You're going to need as an incoming freshman take advantage of a Mook. And there are so many of them that focused on college math and you know, college level math one, and, and some of the English, and it's a good way to refresh your grammar. So definitely that's one way you can take advantage of, of the Mook, to get prepared and use it as a college readiness prep prep course or even refresher another way, is to use it for either AP or SAT subject tests, preparation or actually. Clip tests. So maybe I should just call it test prep. So maybe your SAT subject has your AP test or clip exams. And this is actually what I did with my son, not even realizing that, wait a minute. This could really be thing here. And so around his junior year, I believe is was his junior year. He actually studied sociology on his own as he did the Mook printed, the, the workbook. It was about eighty pages. I just remember being like a remove paper felt like a lot of paper and did the video lessons did the quizzes commented on the forum, the discussion when through it did all the assignments and when he felt like he was ready to sit for the clip exam college level exam placement. He actually Saffire that and earned a score that would allow him to not have to take that course one of his humanity courses at the college where he is now. So sometimes, and let me back up and the only expense, so we didn't have to pay for the Mook, we did not have to pay for the. The book the materials, the only expense was the clip exam. That was it. And I believe it was eighty dollars or so. So it was just few hours. He went in he took the test, and boom that was it. So it was it's a great way to prep for an upcoming test either AP SAT subject tests, or clap and many, many colleges and universities. And you need to check with your particular school, as you're building your list will allow you to transfer in those credits. And so you actually don't have to take those courses they will give you credit for though. So you won't get the gray transfer. But they will designate on your college transcripts that you've earned that credit. And so that's why with my son he did dual enrollment, and he also cleft out of a couple of courses, which we knew what either allow him to go into his minor early in his sophomore year or graduate early. So it's a great way to get a. Ahead, you know, doing test prep using mooks another thing, you, you can do is career exploration. So I like to I think it's really good for students to job, shadow, and to research, and to do some assessments. But this is another great way to take a course, and to say is this something that I'm interested in so one of the Mook providers, Ed X dot org. ED Xhosas, EDS dot org. I just went into there, and I just typed in the words career, exploration and found so many wonderful courses that help students understand different careers, and different career paths and some of the subjects I found were finding your cyber security career path. So you wanna be a biomedical engineer retail management, and introduction to capital markets. So again, MC can be a great way to exp-. Floor a potential career path. So you're probably wondering, okay so how do I get started? Where do I find these mooks? Let me tell you just a few of my favorites that we've used. And then I'm going to give you a link and these all these links will be in the show notes to where you can find a list of tons. I mean, there were several hundred Mook providers in this database, and you can just search by the type, of course at you're interested in it. So one of my.
