These are one-of-a-kind workshops!

I have yet to see anyone doing workshops that are as thorough as these and with the amount of information that the 80 page guidebooks contain. A lot of the information I share is not widely known to the public. All of my workshops are designed with powerpoints for in-person or online presentation with guidebooks and handouts for downloading for each session. These are really the heart and soul of the workshops and what will help parents the most. The workshops are 90 minutes in length with 30 minute Q & A sessions (or can easily go longer if the school chooses that option). The series is called "The Road to the Fat Envelope" which contains 10 workshops. These workshops are for parents of middle school students and high school students (I prefer to get them before junior year and as early as 7th or 8th grade). School Counselors find them very helpful as well because I keep the information updated to include the most current info for financial aid, scholarships, free online resources and admissions information.
