As a high school counselor for many years, I continue to stand in front of over 600 students and try to talk to them all at once about their educational goals. I was stumped on figuring out a way to find the time to guide them individually into their future, on top of guidance counseling staffs being drastically cut in Michigan schools which limits the resources available to students, when I came up with my new business idea.
THE BIG IDEA:
Guide 2 Goals will offer early intervention to give students a better opportunity to succeed. We will work in conjunction with parents and students, in a personal, fun and real world application way, to guide them to their goals for a successful future beyond high school.
WHY MY IDEA IS BETTER THAN THE REST:
We will be a personal guidance business that will work hand in hand with parents and students to navigate the process of post-secondary choices. Parents will have 24-hour access to school district curriculums, information on state laws, and future educational opportunities that are and will be open to their student.
THE SKY'S THE LIMIT:
With the funds raised we will be getting our website, social media, and brochures built. We plan on putting together a basic profile and providing examples of what we can offer our clients.
