The PathFinder System

This Book Will Set Your Student Up To THRIVE

In my new book, The PathFinder System, you’re going to learn the simple method that helps any student discover a path that excites them and keeps them engaged…

While also ensuring they accumulate marketable skills that are directly aligned to their strengths so they’ll stand out when they transition to the “real world.”

I should warn you, though: This book isn’t just an ordinary book.

It’s more of an actionable playbook with tangible stories and steps to follow than a traditional “book” you might pick up online.

I worked hard to remove the fluff to make this easy to read and apply.

At 106 pages, you’ll be able to read it in an afternoon.

When you purchase the book, I’ll send you a link to download the book so you can immediately access it.

Here’s A Fraction Of What You’ll Learn:

  • Think the college major isn’t that important? I’ll show you some eye-opening stats that prove a student’s field of study is more important than ever (page 23)
  • ​The 3-Step E.A.R. Method that I developed to guide students to the best path, no matter how unsure, confused or anxious they might feel right now (page 44)
  • A 10-question assessment that will help you determine if your son or daughter is adequately prepared for their future (and how to turn things around if they aren’t) (page 41)
  • ​A job simulator-like assessment that reveals a student’s strengths with incredible accuracy (you’ve probably never heard of this tool before) (page 65)
  • Why telling students to “find something they’re passionate about” is actually bad advice (and what we should recommend instead) (page 49)
  • A fun decision-making tool (the Decision Generator) that helps students narrow their many options down to the one best choice (whether they’re choosing a college or the best field of study) (page 79)
  • A foolproof method that helps students match their unique strengths to a field of study that’s tailor-made for them (page 70)
  • Why letting students to go into college completely undecided, trusting that they’ll get the direction they need, is a dangerous and outdated practice (page 38)
  • A surprising reason why many colleges are ill-prepared to help students discover the best path (most families overlook this, but the lightbulb will go off when you read this story) (page 36)
  • When we think students are unmotivated, it’s usually something else that’s holding them back (learn what it is and how to fix it) (page 46)
  • ​Why comparing your school experiences to your child’s is like comparing apples to hand grenades (and how to help your student avoid the flood of outdated advice still circulating) (page 29)
  • The 4 biggest reasons it’s so hard for students to make decisions for their future (and the most effective way to “hijack” the brain so making decisions is much easier) (page 78)
  • The #1 reason most students say they attend college (and the startling reason the vast majority don’t achieve this desired outcome) (page 35)
  • A puzzle analogy that reveals why the average student has difficulty articulating their goals (and how to finally help them answer the question, “What do you want for your future?”) (page 47)
  • The top 8 attributes employers look for when assessing students for future employment (families almost always focus on #5 but neglect #1) (page 31)
  • 6 brain-expanding questions that help students articulate what they actually want for their future (I call this foundational step the “Finish Line Formula”) (page 52)
  • The best free resource to determine the return on investment by college major (including potential salaries and future job prospects) (page 99)
  • The biggest reasons why the career tests students take in school are often unhelpful and misleading (page 58)
  • The “Why, Who, What” model that shows students what’s most important when trying to choose the best field of study (This also explains why many adults are dissatisfied with their jobs!) (page 62)
  • Brand new technology employers are using to recruit college students (and how it’s radically changing the student hiring landscape as we speak. Students who understand how this works will have an advantage.) (page 32)
  • Are the liberal arts even worth it anymore? You might be surprised by my answer! (page 93)
  • In-depth answers to the FAQs I receive from families (you probably have one or more of these questions!) (page 91)
  • The 10 most important career-focused questions to ask a college (before forking thousands of dollars to tuition and other expenses) (page 86)

  • And a whole lot more!
