Two students shared, links of Success!

Rentometer– Two students shared this INFORMATION with me;0). They found it to be an interesting way to determine whether you’re getting the  the right rent amount from renters t. At the time, we checked it for our area .  We found out that we charge on the low side for my area.  Give it a try! (www.rentometer.com/)

Another  resource is Trulia If you’re planning to make a real-estate-related move, “…It has financial information as well as details about school districts and communities….” see

Are You going to force your kids to Graduate? Will this help them Prosper and Learn?

Yesterday , I was asked if I was going to force my five kids to go to college ? My answer shocked this person when I said “no”. This person stated “don’t you know without an education your kids will fail? I just smiled and excused myself and left the conversation.

How many times were you told that a college degree was a must  for a good career ? Now , I am not saying anything is wrong with getting a degree, but it is not a “golden ticket” In fact , Trent stated some interesting facts,  we should at least realize:

“…I intend to encourage their critical thinking skills as much as I can and try to expose them to as many areas as possible while still at home. They’ll try musical instruments, various art forms, sciences of all kinds, and so on, and we’ll see where their natural magnet leads them.

I’m also going to strongly encourage them to be entrepreneurs in their spare time, from selling lemonade to mowing lawns. Or maybe even starting their own blogs – I’ve discovered some amazingly successful bloggers early in their teen years….” See the entire Post at- Is College Really Necessary For All High School Graduates? : The Simple Dollar

In our family growing up , we had a saying :

“If you have will there is a way ,” if there is a way, there is a Willis!”

We were taught to be an strong advocate for all people, no matter what their status or race, learn at high levels and that all things are really possible that is why ,all of us following or parents example and helping others through creative ways, most of us didn’t need their college education and become successful entrepreneurs!

However, IT MUST be noted all of us have learned the principles from “prosper learning” high quality programs and have found Success . our families success Here are a few of them, both contemporary and from the past,.

Brent and Phelecia Hatch– Phelecia is my sister and is a wonderful mother and friend. Brent who has been a successful entrepreneur in many areas! But the project I love the best is “Raising a G-Rated Family in an X-Rated World.” (http://www.howtobehave.com/)

He also has a great instructor who also teaches at his gym named Chuck Costello :: MMA Professional Trainer And Fighter! see Orem :: LA BOXING Instructors

“MeetInnovators + Ethan Willis”

There was a great interview done  with Ethan Willis. He stated

“…Number one is getting good people to manage the employees. Number two is hiring good people from the beginning…” and  “…A lot of companies become bureaucratic because they are trying to set up systems and processes to manage the wrong people. If you can have the right people who believe in what you’re trying to do and who have the right philosophy, the culture of the business will often manage itself. Then it’s all about fostering that culture…” see Ethan Willis from Prosper, Inc.-MeetInnovators CEO Club

The above interview gives insight to how Prosper inc. can help people, so effectively. And in my humble opinion is the reason is the best in the educational industry!  When you “talk to Prosper CEO Ethan Willis,” you come a way better when you leave him!

Turn The Fear Into Action = Creating Opportunities…

I’ve been hearing and seeing from more and more friends and students  who are being into “transition” experiences. This helped turn the fear into action = creating  opportunities…   :

“…..Across the country and around the world, legions of people are abandoning their dependence on big business and seeking independence through their own enterprises. Every month, about 1 million Americans go through some type of job change or loss, and increasingly they are deciding to start their own businesses.

In a recent report titled Work, Entrepreneurship and Opportunity in 21st Century America, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce said, “Millions of Americans are embracing entrepreneurship by running their own small businesses, through independent contracting or direct selling.” The report also cited a recent Gallup poll finding that 61 percent of Americans now say they prefer to be their own bosses…” See  “You Should Start Your Own Biz Today” by  Virtual Entrepreneur-August 1st, 2008 ( http://brazilbusiness.biz/ )

Article Highlights Life-Changing Prosper Learning Education

Changing lives, One Student At A Time

I love the article  that was selected to appear in the August 2006 issue of the national magazine, U.S. Business Review in an article entitled “Investing in Tomorrow”.

The article thoroughly outlined the reasons for Prosper, Inc. students’ success and portrayed the vision of Prosper, Inc. as a company . It also covered  the vision for  our employees and leaders;0) The article stated ,

“After pioneering its own niche in the post-secondary education market, Prosper Inc. has positioned itself as an organization devoted to helping individuals achieve success in the business world through its customized courses…[T]he company is a valuable asset for individuals hoping to fulfill their potential and further their careers through return-on-investment-based learning systems.”

Ethan Willis, CEO and President of Prosper, Inc. said, “This is a rewarding article because it talks about the success of our students as well as the integrity and abilities of our employees here at Prosper.”

In the article Ethan, whom I call my young brother and friend  stated   he “believes the company’s most valuable assets are its employees..”
