Did you know that only 40% of College Students graduate in 4 years?

60% graduate in 6 years.

60% change majors at least 3 times.

In the US, the average cost of an instate public college is over $27000/year. A private college is $55,000/year.

Extending time in college can be a costly choice. That is why Beth and Greg Langston feel that empowering students to master their self discovery is the best way to prepare them for college and the world beyond. By helping students to discover and define their values, purpose and strengths, they are better able to articulate where they want to go and the path they want to follow. Whether that is college or not.

Beth and Greg Langston joined me on this episode to talk about the college process and the tools needed to succeed not only in post secondary, but throughout life.

College Flight Plan

Beth graduated from Purdue University in Education. She has helped hundreds of students navigate the college application essays with tremendous success. Greg graduated from the Purdue Krannert School of Business. Having led businesses in excess of $1 billion and worked in 65 countries, Greg has mentored hundreds of young professionals.

Beth and Greg homeschooled their children off and on for numerous years. Their family lived overseas until their children were teens. They decided to relocate back to the US so that their kids could better prepare for College. The goal was to find more opportunities for self discovery, opportunities to clarify their values and define the goals that would prepare them for college or the path they were gifted to do. Unable to find what they were looking for, Beth and Greg decided to found College Flight Plan. Combining their experience and backgrounds, they have developed tools that provide a sense of clarity and confidence for students. The goal of College Flight Plan is to empower students to master their self discovery.

In This Episode~College & Self Discovery

In this episode we talk about preparing young people for adult life through the process of self discover. We explored the 5 fundamental questions of this process:

  1. What are my core values, and how do I use them?
  2. What are my strengths and weaknesses?
  3. What is my purpose in life?
  4. What are the college majors that best suit me?
  5. What are my five-year and one-year goals?

I'd like to know, did you attend College or University and was it the right path for you? Do your children feel it is the right path for them? What has helped them to clarify their life ahead?

If College is a path that your kids are looking towards but the cost is holding you back, check out my episode with Abby Chao~ CollegeBacker and Saving For College.
