For months, Madison’s thoughts around college had been in conversation.  It seemed that her interests were changing weekly and the reasons supporting her choices were pretty shallow.  At 17, there are quite a few misconceptions about how to navigate college and career choices.  The “help” that school counselors were providing seemed pretty weak and, of course, we as parents were the worst people on the planet to be advising our teenager!  Having involved the Wineinger Company in 10 years of hiring qualified candidates in a corporate setting, I knew there were better tools and methods out there and I also knew we needed help!  We needed a 3rd party “expert” to consult with and guide an INTENTIONAL process for this critical choice.  I thought I had a novel idea when I asked them for help, but it turns out that they’ve been doing this stuff for years and had an immediate process that we could follow.  Suffice it to say that, in about one month, my daughter (and quite frankly, us as well) went from frustrated and perplexed to “breakthrough”.  Upon her Birkman review, Madison immediately became interested in Human Resources – a field of work that she was largely unaware existed prior to the discussion.  Yesterday, she and I toured NKU and she loved it!  While having lunch after the tour, Madison said, “I’m so glad we went through the Degree4Me program!  I didn’t even know about NKU (as a college choice) nor HR as a field of study, but now I feel like I know exactly what I need to be doing!”  As a part of our research, we confirmed Human Resources to be a growing and prosperous field in the coming years and we all feel great about the investment of time and money we’ll be making.  Today’s conversation has shifted to how many AP credits will transfer and how she can jump start her new path through summer classes!  Needless to say, we’re breathing a big sigh of relief!

I just wanted to write you a note of thanks.  If you recall, we first met in August 2016 as I was struggling mightily with the lack of fulfillment I was experiencing in my legal career.  I was lost and ready to give it all up, but you wouldn’t let me do that.  We worked through a plan and you helped me figure out what I wanted to do and gave me the encouragement and guidance I needed to put a plan in place.

I will say that things were very slow to start (my fault), but after some work, lots of prayer, and a stroke of good luck, a friend of mine reached out with an opportunity for a full-time teaching position at a (top level) University teaching business courses in the School of Business.  I don’t have the traditional qualifications for the position and might have resisted pursuing the opportunity had it not been for our meetings.  Instead, I pulled together my resume, focusing on my business advising during my legal practice, and went for it.

Believe it or not I was offered the job almost a year to the day of our first meeting.  It was a significant pay cut from the world of a corporate legal practice, but if you remember I was longing for more time in my life and a career with more purpose and meaning for me.  I’m happy to say that I just finished my first semester teaching full time and it’s been wonderful.  I am exponentially happier and more fulfilled, and I’m just very excited to have this new opportunity.

I’m sorry it took me so long to reach out, but it’s never too late to say thank you.  I would not have had the courage to make the move without your advice and for that I am grateful.
