"aaron greenhouse" Discussed on Joyce Meyer's Talk It Out Podcast
"Plan so you can impre a whole lot exactly trust talking about change. Joyce's been through a lot in a lot of different arenas so so let's give her a call and see her to what else she has about this guy about hey joyce. How are you good. You caught me with something in my mouth. I talked to this. Call me and we've been waiting for this opportunity. I was more worried about your nails being wet. Are you okay holding the phone. Okay good the nails of dried. She was at the Nail Salon Ready. Go We've been talking about change and you were sharing a little bit about some of the changes that you've experienced in life and Aaron greenhouse question for you. I do Joyce you. Have I mean you've been through so many changes and you talked about how you've transition. Even in your own Ministry of starting get you started the whole thing and you had control over everything but as you've gone you've seen you've had to let go of some areas because you can't do it all so how have you done that just to let go of control role and trust other people and and see that change happen. Well probably do it better now than I did in the beginning. I I think when you when you've been a strong leader and you start trying to let go of things you probably start wanting other people do the work but you don't necessarily I wanna get to do and so the first thing you have to learn I think as a leader we're letting go of things is to whoever takes the place of doing whatever you were doing. They're not going to do it exactly the way you did but the good thing is if you let them shine. They'll do better than you. I just I just said this past weekend. There was a time when I I was preaching at Lakewood. Church and I said there was a time when I did everything at the ministry I mean I I even remember going to get the mail and they said now. I actually could not run the office day when I couldn't because we don't know enough of the technology that runs to keep it going right which it's it's the nature of things it's the way that but things are you know you. You do certain things at certain times in your life. I love what has he says everything for everything. Dirksen season but a season means that it's not going to last forever. It's going to change. What is your advice for? Someone who's in a season as an exchange right now that they didn't choose for themselves something that you know maybe they're not even thrilled with but it's where they are. How do you navigate that well. The best thing I ever heard that help me with that as is something is changing that you don't want to change but you can't do anything about about it and you're involved in it. The first thing you need to do is change your mind about the change and other I mean let's just say that something changes inches on your job and you know maybe somebody who's coming into buying out the company and they're going to do things differently than the way they've done. I'm in the past and you don't like it. You know like the changes so you only have two options. You can be miserable. Be Mad the upset gossip start. All kinds of strife are you can change your mind and say well. This is going to change range and so I'M GONNA change my mind about it and just believe it's going to be good. Change Your perspective yeah. You've got to change your perspective about it. When we're resisting things that are not GonNa go away. No matter how much we resist them it really only hurts us but change or something something that challenges easier for some people than others I'm probably not add as adversely personally opposed to it as some people are but I remember the day talking today the other day about the the last it's time that I said something about you know it might not live in the house where in forever he's like. Oh No I love it here. I I don't WANNA move. I love this view and and I said you remember the last place we live. I suggested that we move you said I love you like this. You better than you did back to you yeah so a lot of times when we refused change. We're actually cutting ourselves some blessings than we could have. That's a statement for someone right now. Does that go yeah Yeah Joyce Abba question for you like I know Aaron asked about when you oh you know made the change with the ministry is there what did you can just encourage people about how freeing it is you know once you do let it go like the opposite the control the control thing then how much freedom you get like you know. I I'm with a bunch of people right now. That are in transitions that are like that were resistant at first but now they're realizing wow. I have more time like I can do things can you do you mind talking in about this the other side of letting that control go the freedom side of it yeah. I think that the way that I I talk about it is there's a difference in what I can do and what I'm called and so I can do a lot of things I could come up to the to the ministry headquarters every day and I could do all kinds of you know and a lot of them would be things that people might think yeah we. We love that you're doing but it's it's not what I'm the best at and you know you. When we started out in the industry. We had to do everything whether we like it or not. Reading Eh that growth editor not it was just me and Dave and but that's how we started but now I'm at a point and it's happened been gradually over a long period of time you know we we handle everything for probably the first twenty twenty five years and and but now I'm able to give myself to what I'm absolutely kissed far and the best and so that's communication rather be verbally or in writing so I gave myself now to study and prayer and writing. I'm doing my television and doing things like this which I'm still communicating and it is pre you know I have. I was just thinking today about how nice it is to actually have time to have a day where I don't don't have to work every single day where it's okay to just rest and be quiet and kitten think and I think hopefully you know some of the best creativity will come autumn in the next few years because I'm not busy doing things that I can. Dan Do but things that I'm not really called to do like a and if you hadn't been willing to make that change you you wouldn't have those benefits. It's now right so yeah some some of them. I I made easier the others you know the last go around. I actually should've let go some things before I did but I was persistent in doing him and I ended up getting sick and didn't have much choice and so so a lot of people just because they don't know how to go things they do end up hurting their health because they're not they won't let anybody else in the world helped him do anything and God really contended for us to need each other. That's why it's different skill sets sets right and I think pride. A lot of times keeps people from wanting to let go of something. That's really true. They're afraid somebody else might be better at it than them. Part of they're afraid somebody else will get a little attention or a little bit of the credit that they used to have and to hear again. I guess you can either just live worn out stressed out all the time. You could be willing to but yeah well. Thank you Joyce. We appreciate it very much. We that wisdom so good all right go finish finish whatever you're munching on what color what Color Nail Polish did you get. It's I actually think they put them on thing on being supposed to have a little bit totally change my mind okay. That's not what I thought it was but they have it all right. We'll talk to you later. Love you guys back. Hey you know all the things that she was talking about it. It just reminds me because the control thing is definitely an issue for me. I mean it's just it's real but it's all an illusion anyway. Control is it's never real. It's just an illusion of control and if we can let go of that yeah then it really does help help change not only go better be more effective like not only easier for you. Emotionally to handle at the results of the change will be easier to yeah that goes into that whole whole thing of me saying before about optimism and like like. I would think that it's GonNa be that this outcome is going to come of this. That was the main can trying to control the outcome yeah so the more that I relinquish control trust the Lord. Let go and and just go for the ride in the Gut guy it just stop right. Everyone's saying well we it like. We've been talking about with change again. You can hear more about this from joy. She has a teaching called how to survive change. It's good title. It's available digitally so so good at Joyce Meyer dot org slash talk it out you can get it there and also if you wanted to learn a little bit more about us. Listen to other podcasts you you can do it all right. There and we have a great second season coming up for you is good. We're going to talk about so many fun things our next topic is a really a big one and it's one that's really close to. Joyce's heart and I'm sure is going to impact a many of you who are listening and that is healing the soul of a woman yeah. It's a the big ones a big one. It's so important and it's not only it's not only about lives changing and hearts being healed but it's is just about the daily stress and the things that we're on a so don't feel like it won't apply to you. It will apply to every really good note just going into next week that even if you feel like you don't have something that some major story of something has happened to you. We all have things that have happened in our daily lives. Yeah affected who we are our as women so we all got stuff. We.
"aaron greenhouse" Discussed on Affording College with Aaron Greene
"To afford in college with aaron green founder and president of college liftoff. Thanks thirty guy so welcome to foreign college. I'm aaron greenhouse of affording college and founder of college liftoff colors of college planning firm. I started to provide solutions for anybody. Nobody in 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. Yes we work with teams. Throughout the entire college planning process starting with personalized one on one critical element work from there we find the best schools to match our students chosen career paths hats 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 ensuring it's the right fit today. We are ohio's premiere college planning firm. I'm happy to say that we're shooting for the world by the way and we strive to save time stress and money when it comes to your child's else higher education so that's a little background on myself and college liftoff. I do this podcast. I really wanna family some solid advice when it comes to planning for college in higher education because there's so much misinformation out there. The purpose of this podcast is to dispel the mets and misinformation really help families so every so often we get questions from the audience through our website and through facebook and twitter anything like that <hes> just asking questions about college. Just anything on your mind that you may want answered and we love to answer them. <hes> so i'm sitting here with allison page and alex typically sees these questions i so without we bring to the table and just be able to answer answer some through ooh yeah this summer. We have seen a lot of questions. Thank you for submitting <hes> but one of the questions <hes> that we've seen most <music> as of late as the summer is winding down it are actually from <hes> the parents of students that are college college bound so recently. We've been seeing a lot of questions from parents <hes> saying you know hey. My kid is already committed headed to college. They're going in the fall. How do we get more money now. Yeah okay okay so this is. This is a harder topic to tackle because the truth is there's no good answer and it's again as i've talk talk about an all pass podcasts of how this process likened house it think of the concept of you bought a house and you see something that happened or something thing went wrong or nothing and you just like you know what i think. I want more money off of this. That's not gonna happen. You've already bought the house you've already. You've already gone through closing closing. You've already done all that. There's no reason for the seller at all at that point to go back and give you anything else. <hes> i really wanna make sure so that people understand what they're doing when they when they buy college you're buying college and i mean that i want you to understand that that is the full aspect of this. You've gone to the school. You picked it. This isn't something that it's not it. It's schools are nonprofits and twisted. They do their best but they're in business awesome business tomorrow and in that same vein. They're not gonna give you really anything else. You've you've already bought them based off of the deal that you've already agreed to which is is the financial aid package that you accepted. When you sign on the dotted line to come to that school. There is potential for more scholarships through other methods and now mind you these are small. These are not gonna by any measure cover tuition cover room and board for the vast majority of schools. You're looking at things that you know maybe two or three thousand thousand dollars here from your department as you go further on into school because in your department whatever you're going to school for <hes> as you gradually get older meaning <music> as you get into your software especially junior specially senior year and your student in that specific department that degree your more dedicated to that major so the individual apartments or colleges the college nearing his more willing to give you money to help you with your education because now you're full-fledged engineering student versus. If you're an incoming freshman shman fifty percent of incoming major changer a fifty percent of incoming freshman change a major but in the whole aspect of it the majority of money you get for college comes to admissions missions so when you apply to a school you do the fast food you do all the things you start getting financial aid offers and this is why i really really encourage you guys as an audience pay attention to the financial aspects just as much as you do to the other ends whether it be the academic the fifth pieces the financials justice just as important because we run into these situations all the time where you have to see what the financial package looks like before you signed dotted line for the school again house comparison. You're not going to go buy a house without seeing the price tag. You're not gonna go out there and just say oh give me that one and now all of a sudden. It's an eight hundred thousand dollar house with a four thousand dollar mortgage per month and your last homeless two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. That's not going to happen. You have to do this in the same way the system the situation is set up that that you can do it that way. Though that kid falls in love with the school you go visit you apply you get in by by holloway or by christmas. You say yes on january first your financial. The packers will show up until april but you're stuck and especially if you go through early decision you're really stuck so you have to do your financial due diligence at the beginning. There's really not a good method or way to make up for it down the road and my pagent raining here but i guess but what are your thoughts. I mean honestly other than <hes> <hes> submitting like special circumstances so say you've said yes. It was april. We've all agreed. This is the package that we're getting. I'm off to you college you in the fall and then their special circumstances. Maybe a an illness or a job loss or something you could submit and ask for <hes> some additional accommodation but other than that. I think you really just need to look forward to the next fafsa which is again october first. The new fafsa graphs will open. You'll you'll fill up again for your next year of school. <hes> you can try to look for additional moneys. You can indicate a change in circumstance or <hes> you know you can do more of the work to look for additional scholarships and things like that but i honestly by the time we get you. August rest is really too late to do much of anything to change your financial outcome by the time you may. It's too late honestly. If you have a financial situation that has abruptly changed then you do absolutely submit the it's called the special circumstances form goes to the financial aid department right there on that spot or something abruptly happens if you knew ooh this job loss was a thing six months before you need to submit that special circumstances form six months before when you submit that application so that way that can be written into your financial aid package going forward and you can still check on it then that's why it's so important to govern this process with logic and thought and reason not emotion not strictly emotion <hes> and now your kid wants to go to school acts. Are you and i know that this is beautiful and your parents or whatever the reasons reasons are that we sometimes chew schools emotionally. We've got to take a bigger step back because they're asking for an annual salary out of you. They really are and or four years. That's the house that you've just bought. That's why compared to off into that. So you have to be really on top of that again. The things you can do their small they make a difference france on a small scale. I mean i'm talking. Factors of five ten percent of wichita struck shar <unk> search has form. If you need it always do the fast food ah but you know from the previous year if that's gonna make a difference or not anyway <hes> and go to your departments within the school and try to see if they can apply and get something for you as well. If it's too much of a heavy burden <hes> the truth is and again. This is coming from an honest perspective. You really may have to consider swapping tools that it really may be your next and community. Colleges are wonderful tools tools to be able to kind of reduce costs and do the same coursework in order to get back to that same university to finish out your degree set in the end. It's all about where you finish your degree somewhere you started. Let's start at anywhere. What about a gap year are sometimes a gap year is helpful. Sometimes i feel that most people use a gap year. At least you can correct me if i'm wrong because you hear different things for different people and it's all of it. I hear a lot of people say oh go. Use a gap your figure out what you wanna do. That doesn't teach you what you wanna do but what about a gap year to in order to address this financial issue yeah so sal. The problem is for the gap year. Is that in order to a gap your effectively. You have to do the exact same process in your seniors. Everybody else does she have to apply and you have to do all the financial things you should be doing that at the beginning anyway and then once you get your deal set with at school then you tell the school. I'm taking a gap year the package. That's the way effectively done. If you decide to delay applying to a school that's different if you decide to delay applying until the next year the truth is your marketability is vastly deteriorated. So what about these families though who are saying. Can you help us gets. We're getting ready to send her kid off to school and we figured out that we're short does a gap year makes sense while they kind of figure things out. I mean i know a lot of our families might say not a alive but families may say well you know here she could work for the ear puts money away and then i mean does that make sense for our kids we'd be. I think there's a lot of things that have to like a a big list of chip of checks that we have to go through. Yes nos one is their financial aid package secure that actually be held for the next year where if we actually go make more money this will help and we can shorten our time and i think that's one thing that might not be the case. You're saying it might not be <hes> if they may say well. If you didn't show up then gone <hes> so you have to see what's going on there. <hes> i wouldn't say do a gap here. I would really if the gap here's the thing for time and money. I would go work and go to community college to be honest us with because this is an easy math problem in the sense english one. Oh one every freshman is basically going to take a version of its usually a three to two five.
"aaron greenhouse" 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 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.
