7 Reasons College is the Right Choice

Posted in : Be Amazing!,Maximize Your Grades,Quick Tips

Is College Right for You?  Yes.  Uh-huh.  And, probably.

Of course, I am biased.  I’m a college graduate, so I see this from the perspective of someone who has been there and done that.  Additionally, I’ve taught at a college.  I’m on an advisory board for a college, and a portion of my income comes from me speaking at colleges.  So how could I possibly be objective in this discussion?  Maybe I can’t, but I can make a good case for why college will benefit you.

Let’s start with the elephant in the room.  Is it absolutely necessary to attend college to be successful in life?  No, but attending college is certainly not going to hurt your opportunity for success.  In fact, it will likely help to improve your chances significantly.  Plain and simple:  the odds lean in your favor when you attend college and earn your degree.  Elephant #2:  What if I don’t actually end up “using” my degree?  So what!  There is nothing wasteful about gaining knowledge for the simple sake of knowledge.  Even if you go on to do something with your life that doesn’t utilize the specific degree you earned, it is still beneficial.  I have a cousin with a history degree and he works in the banking industry.  My best friend has a computer science degree with a minor in business.  He lasted a year in the computer world and couldn’t stand it.  Now he owns a lawn and landscape business and is crazy successful.  Neither would likely be where they are now without their degrees.

7 Reasons College Is the Right Choice

1.  The Education

The most obvious reason is that you’ll receive a quality education from attending college.  It’s such an obvious reason that I almost didn’t list it.  However, think about it for a minute.  Attending college gives you the opportunity to study topics that actually interest you — unlike all of your schooling up to this point, which was designed to teach you what you need to know instead of what you want to know.  In college, you can discuss and debate your favorite topics with professors and other students in an academic forum designed to ignite your desire for learning.  Pretty cool stuff, but you have to attend to participate.

2.  The Connections

The people you


What is Sex, Drugs, & Red Bull™?

Posted in : About Chad,Be Amazing!,Health & Wellness,In the News,Maximize Your Grades,Mind, Body, Spirit,Stress Less

Sex, Drugs, & Red Bull™ is an edgy, engaging, and entertaining program that shows you how to overcome the headgame hurdles that block our health, happiness, and ultimately our path to living life On Top of The World.  Its philosophy simplifies the complexity of our choices.  Sex, Drugs, & Red Bull™ is the course we never had in school about choices, consequences, and how the two are interwoven to pave or derail our path to success.  The program offers strategies that can be implemented the minute you leave the talk … strategies that will skyrocket you to living life on top of the world.  The choices we make and the action we take determine the life we create.  When we improve our choices, we improve our chances for enhanced health, happiness, and success.

Ready. Set. Go.

The program begins with the basics:  Exploring our obsession with chemically stimulated living — our true chemical romance.  In today’s world, we have a bottle filled with some sort of “chemical” to help us wake up, stay awake, study harder, play the field, play on the field, and even hit the hay at night.  Remember the old advertisement that said, “We’ve got an app for that”?  Well, instead of an app, we’ve got a bottle for that!  From the bedroom to the boardroom and from the dorm room, to the classroom, and even into the locker room, we’ve got a bottle for each of life’s circumstances.

Energy drinks.  Alcohol.  Medications.  And more.

From there, I look at the most common bottles each of us use every day, yet this is not a substance abuse lecture … far from it, in fact (leave the substance abuse for the Dr. Drews of the world).  You’ll find none of the “thou shalt nots …” so often hurled toward you in an effort to force feed you an opinion — or worse:  to sell you another bottle that promises to help you succeed.  I’m not here to make up your mind for you.  My mission is to deliver the information you want in an edgy, engaging, and entertaining forum.  You make up your own mind about what is right for you.

Living Bigger Than A Bottle …

As the program moves forward, you’ll gain a solid foundation to help make more informed choices, to overcome the headgame hurdles holding you back, and you’ll gain solid strategies to give you all the energy, all the success, and even better health while no longer feeling mandated to reach for some kind of bottle to get these same benefits.  I call this Living Bigger Than A Bottle … the core philosophy of Sex, Drugs, & Red Bull™.
