Contests: How You Teen CAN Stand Out

 Podcast:   Parenting Your "Nearly Grown"   JUST.   GOT.   EASIER.  

 Your Teen Needs to Know How to Stand OUT on Paper - NOT Just Face-to-Face!

Does your teen know how to stand out on paper or digitally - and NOT just for an interview? 

Without a method, standing out can be challenging.   Often success lives and dies in that few starting seconds on paper.
