Ep. 140 | How To Build An Extracurricular Activity From Scratch

Case Study: JP came to me hoping to find an extracurricular activity that would stand out. 45 minutes later...he was on his way.

Show Notes:

In this episode, I reflect on a recent conversation I had with a rising sophomore who was intent on finding an extracurricular activity that would challenge him, feed his passion, and differentiate himself from the masses. We started with a single premise: He liked investing. How did we extend this simple idea into a 2-year blueprint that could put JP on the map and make him a compelling applicant for any college in the country?
