MasterMind Your Way To Better Grades!

If you’ve read my book “Get The Best Grades With The Least Amount Of Effort“… You know that it’s the simplest, easiest and most elegant strategies that make all the difference. One of the most useful and practical ways to get better grades is to leverage what’s called a Study MasterMind Group – not a traditional study group, something much, much more effective.

In fact it’s so effective that all great fortunes and humankind’s greatest achievements are a result of MasterMind Groups.

But guess what?

Until now, no one had brought this back to the classroom to help prevent students from wasting valuable time studying in groups.

That’s why I’ve come up with a brand new program – “How to Create a Fun, Effective and Powerful Study MasterMind Group to Catapult Your Grades Sky High!”

I’ve personally achieved a several goals by the time I was 40 that most people will never achieve in their lifetime. I don’t say that to be arrogant of self-righteous, but to make a point.

I’m not the smartest person I know, yet I out-perform people that I know are way smarter than me – BECAUSE I HAVE TOOLS AND STRATEGIES that are better, more efficient.

One of those strategies is leveraging Study MasterMind Groups.

The program I’ve put together is comprehensive and includes a lot of hidden bonuses that are delivered over time – just like I’ve done with my study book.

How Observant Are You?

To get better grades in school, you need to be observant which means your power of focus and attention to detail need to be fined tuned. I came across these photos on the Internet and thought it a great way for you to test how many differences you can spot between the two photos. Leave me a comment with the total number you’ve found and we’ll see who is the most observant of all!

How Many Differences Can You Spot?

Parents – Help Your Kids Get Better Grades

This blog is all about helping students get better grades. As you will notice, more pages are being added to the blog portion of this study skills site to give you the information and advice you need.

I recently added a new section aimed at parents. It covers what parents can do to help their kids get better grades from primary school to university. Also included are pages on the costs of university degrees and the value of a degree with a special page just for Australian degrees.

It’s important that parents remind their kids that an education is an investment that pays off for a lifetime. All the statistics reflect the need to learn skills that are marketable and valuable to employers or lead to self-employment.

I see it everyday – business people and entrepreneurs who struggle with basic writing skills or are challenged with high school level math problems. It’s painful to see because even though it’s never too late to learn, it’s been shown it’s a lot harder to learn as you get older.

Learn as much as you can, as soon as you can – you’ll not only get the benefit for a longer period of time, it will be easier and faster than any other alternative. No one can go back in time, but we can all think ahead and act accordingly.

Keep an eye on these pages – they will be updated and expanded on an on-going basis.

MBA Students: Get PAID to write your next term paper or thesis!

I have clients who need research reports written. They are flexible to accommodate your academic schedule. They need a variety of research reports written on a multitude of topics, industries and subjects. If you are an MBA or other post graduate student and want to get paid to write your next term paper or thesis… Post a comment on this blog.

I’m totally serious – I’ve done this myself – get paid for term papers that I later published and I have paid students to do research – it’s a win-win proposition and there is nothing against it in the academic regulations that says you can’t get paid for writing your own term papers! Of course the reverse is wrong – paying for term papers… That’s plain cheating.

The term papers will be used by real businesses. Examples include:

  • Industry segment analyses
  • Competitor analyses
  • SWOT Analyses
  • Porter’s 5 Forces Analyses
  • Literature reviews on specific topics and issues
  • Statistical research on industry data
  • Competitor comparisons
  • Value Chain Analyses

We’re looking for term papers that can be quickly converted into whitepapers or masters or post-graduate degree thesis that can be edited into a book or formal report. Due to the commercial nature of the documents, chances are if you’ve already written a term paper or thesis, it’s probably not of interest, but you never know. Sometimes a small adjustment of 2-3 hours of editing is all that’s needed to transform it into something one of my clients can use.

The industries are varied and range from plumbing, jewelry design, printer and copier fleet management, accounting and tax management and even cosmetic dentistry.

Ideally, you’re wondering what to do your next term paper on, have some areas of interest and just want to turn your term paper into a cash payment…
