Episode #129 – The Mindset Boost You Need For Back-To-School Season (PPBC Student Interviews)

As school is starting back up again, I am incredibly excited to be recording a brand new episode for you today! Along with the fun that comes with back-to-school shopping, this is a great time to focus on goal setting, which is something that I always looked forward to when I was a student. 

To kick off the back-to-school season, I thought I would give you a mindset boost and talk about how I coach our Passion Project Bootcamp students to develop a long-term mindset for success beyond the college admissions process.  

I also want to share some amazing motivational testimonials that I’ve received from students from our Passion Project Bootcamp program. My hope is that by hearing about their inspiring experiences in their own words, you, too, can see what is possible for you!

You can learn more about our Passion Project Bootcamp program inside our free, 1-hour introductory training.  In only one hour, you’ll hear me talk about techniques, strategies and updates to the college admissions process, and at the very end, you’ll learn more about how the Passion Project Bootcamp program can help you with your college admissions journey.

  • A powerful mindset exercise we do inside our Passion Project Bootcamp program that helps our students focus on building a long-term mindset for college and beyond 
  • How our Passion Project Bootcamp program is so much more than your typical college consulting program  
  • The ways that your limiting beliefs will continue to hold you back unless they are identified and worked on  
  • Motivational feedback, testimonials and stories from some of our amazing Passion Project Bootcamp program students 


Now that I’ve coached and mentored hundreds of high school students with their college admissions process, I’ve seen two ways that people set goals right before they start school.
Mindset is not short-lived. It is `{`for`}` a lifetime, and you get to keep it for the rest of your life.
I like to take my students to a deeper level. Why do you not feel so confident? Where is that doubt coming from?
These are the limiting beliefs that could actually potentially limit your entire future. I know that sounds dramatic, but it’s really true because we humans act based on our thoughts.
