Show Notes

This mini-series focuses on how the COVID-19 virus is impacting and changing colleges and universities.

In this episode, I interview college success strategist Katy Oliveira, founder of Collegehood Advice.  Her popular Collegehood Advice podcast, coaching sessions, resources and presentations work together to create a 21st century toolkit that teaches students how to maximize their college experience and create a meaningful life.  She provides some tips about how students can educate themselves, gain experience and prepare for future opportunities.  We both agree on the value of education and a growth mindset.  Hope you enjoy this interview as much as I did.  Thanks Katy! 

Key Takeaways
