Mark Wahlberg goes back to high school

Marky Mark, Mark Wahlberg Back To SchoolI stumbled across an article that said Mark Wahlberg is going to get his high school diploma.  What does it tell you when a multi-millionaire actor wants a high school diploma?

It means there is value in getting one. This is a man who’s seen more of the world than most and experienced things to fill 3 or 4 lifetimes yet he still feels a little intimidated by the process.

What does that tell you?

Education is worth something. It’s not just self-esteem issue. The stats are staggering, but let’s face it, most high school dropouts don’t care about the stats, but they might care about a RICH, SUCCESSFUL ACTOR going back to school.

So there you have it – ONE MORE REASON TO STAY IN SCHOOL!

Mature Student Goes Back To School

Studying is always stressful and filled with pressure – it’s even more daunting when you’re a mature student, who has been out of school for 10, 20 or even 30 years… Like Sue Wickliffe of Omaha, Nebraska. In today’s post, I have a few recommendations for someone who’s going back to school after a long absence…

Hi, Dr. Dussault.

I found your website by accident.  I belong to IAAP (International Association of Administrative Professionals) and I have been an admin/executive assistant for 35+ years.

Here I am… I’m going to be 60 in April and the IAAP Chapter that I belong to here in Omaha, Nebraska talked me into becoming certified.  I’m currently thinking … “What did I get myself into.”  There are four large books I will be studying:

1)  Office Systems and Technology
2)  Office Administration
3)  Management
4)  Advanced Management

I have an electronic version of these books (which is better than the books themselves).  The actual books are too wordy.  Loses the reader.  On the electronic version there was a link to “Ask Jeeves” and I typed in How to study.  Voila!!!  There was your website.  I purchased your book “Get The Best Grades With The Least Amount Of Effort” as well as your Speed Reading Video Program.

Right now I’m feeling overwhelmed and haven’t studied since high school.  I’m hoping your materials will help me.  I plan to apply them.  The big 6-hour test will take place this November and the other two hour test (for the last book) will take place in May 2011.

The Good Lord gave me a brain and people like you to bring it to fruition.

I’ll keep you posted on my progress.

ONWARD AND UPWARD!!!

Mature Students Going Back To School

If you’re a mature student considering or have decided to go back to school, my book Get The Best Grades With The Least Amount Of Effort is a must-have. As a mature student, you are going to find it tough going competing with people half your age! That’s not being negative, it’s a fact. Even if you’re doing an MBA or post-graduate degree, it’s going to be a struggle unless you…

Learn HOW To Study

In my book, I will show you how to get back into the swing of things almost instantly. By using YOUR LEARNING STYLE to your advantage. This will mean you will hit the ground running rather than stumble and fall in your first and most important school semester or subject.

If you don’t learn how to study properly, you’ll get VERY frustrated and will not get the best grades you can. On top of that, you’ll waste a lot of time swimming against the current and tiring yourself out.

The strategies in my study book were developed BECAUSE I went back to school in my 30′s to do my MBA and Ph.D. where I was ‘competing’ with 20 year-olds who were studying full time.

I took on a full-time course load while registered as a part-time student, completing my Ph.D coursework in LESS than 18 months while my YOUNGER classmates took 3, 4 or 5 years.

I did this WHILE I kept growing my businesses.

These study tips work – especially for mature students in their 40′s, 50′s and 60′s. You have the DISCIPLINE and WISDOM of knowing that if you learn a SYSTEM, you’ll get predictable results.

You have let go of your ego a long time ago and accept that if I’ve been there, done that, I can teach you something. You know that with a money-back guarantee, you have NOTHING TO LOSE, NO RISK.

So go ahead, buy my study book right now and see what happens – YOU WILL GET RESULTS WITHIN 1 WEEK.

GUARANTEED!

Pastry Chef Goes Back to School After 35 years…

Today’s post is from a Pastry Chef in Melbourne. “Speed reading is starting to help me especially with concentration and comprehension, I read through the pages of the document about Host Beneficiaries the other night real easy, normally I am not a reader and would not get through it.”

“The study book “Get The Best Grades With The Least Amount Of Effort” has great power for me, it has been thirty five years since I left school and now I want to start studying again. So I have decided to put it to the test, I am going to study Cooking and Pastry as well as Baking Breads and I am going to do it as though I want to be a Consultant to the Industry so I will see what happens. Also I will try something I know nothing about and that is computers that will be fun!

This is from a ‘baker in Melbourne’… If you are looking to improve your career or your business – learning new stuff is essential. Whether you buy my study book or speed reading video program or BOTH, once you start, you won’t want to stop because getting the Best Business Results With The Least Amount Of Effort gets to be addictive!
