How To Make Community College An Ivy League Experience (Ep. 46)

Isa AdneyDoes going to a community college eliminate your opportunities for achieving your goals?

Or, to put it more bluntly, is your life over if you can’t attend your dream school? Well, in the words of Batman, Teddy Roosevelt, and my dad:


To elaborate on that, I brought my friend Isa Adney onto the show this week. Isa is a professional speaker, educator, and the author of the book Community College Success. Moreover, she started out in community college herself after realizing she’d be unable to afford her dream school.

Fast forward a couple year from when she started college, and Isa had won a prestigious scholarship that gave her $30,000/year to complete her 4-year degree… and $50,000/year to go on and finish a Master’s.

Isa’s story is proof that you can find opportunities to get you closer to your goals no matter what type of school you go to, and this episode is packed with useful info for any student.
