Recently I was hired to be a coach for CollegePlus, an organization dedicated to help people all over the world achieve their college degree in a distance and accelerated environment. I am excited to work with CollegePlus because I have the privilege and the honor of helping guide, encourage and motivate students towards their life and educational goals.
One of the things that got me so excited is found in the CollegePlus program guide:
“The secret to the speed of CollegePlus education is training in accelerated study skills and the use of credit-by-exam. The traditional college student loses hundreds of valuable hours in commuting, sitting in lectures, and often meaningless homework. CollegePlus channels all study time into active self-education. The result is that the average CP student, putting in 25 hours a week of study, can complete their entire four year bachelor’s degree in two years.”
This is astounding, but it also makes perfect sense. I know that while I was at college, I could have done more with my time if I had been an environment that encouraged that “Gazelle Intensity” that Dave Ramsey often talks about. I am convinced that with the right motivation and focus, we can do much more than the culture expects of us.
Here are some resources that will help tell the CollegePlus story better than I can:
Here are some endorsements and testimonials for the CollegePlus program:

Ultimately, I am inspired to see more exceptional learners and leaders in the world who have the opportunity to get an excellent education while maintaining their moral and spiritual values. I hope you are also inspired by this mission as well:
