I was watching TV one day and saw this commercial with a guy that said “when you have a passion for something, you become an expert.” I think he’s right! The more I coach young people about careers and going to college, the better and more knowledgeable I become good at it. Even though I did not get a degree in college recruiting. The more I learned and did, the better I became at it…and I continue to learn and know.

One of my talents is talking! Who would have thought that a person’s gift-of-gab would actually be useful in a career?!

Most of us hang onto those sentimental items in our lives that take us back to the times that are good. We cherish memories and experiences. So many cling on to the good things that happen in life and we use these as a motivation factor and a way to inspire us to keep going. The simple thought of personal and/or professional success is in our hands. We just have to grasp it.

Think about things that make you feel good. Why do they? What is it about those things, people or times that make you feel this way? Too often people disregard these moments, and yet still wonder why they don’t have energy, drive or motivation.

I had to struggle through so many of the bad and good moments in my life, that I began to believe in my heart that everything happens for a reason. The purpose and objective for my own personal and professional struggles is the very catalyst for my starting this website. For those of you young people that are just beginning, this will guide you to make some choices that will be profoundly significant in your life…whether it be financial, personal, spiritual or professional. Please know one thing, if you’re on this website, you just made the first most important decision of your life! ☺

To all the moms, dads, guardians, counselors and anyone else investing time helping young people…

Your role is special. No matter your experience, past or beliefs, you HAVE to be there for them in some ways…but not in all.  I’ll explain throughout this site and I will provide you with all the steps I can to help you along this journey. I have encountered various parents at college fairs, in high schools and even at a gas station once who have expressed to me their own concerns for the process in sending their students off to college.

Your Success is My Success,

Keith Lipke
