I am passionate about helping young millionaires in the making accomplish their goals by becoming financially fit, and a key part of this equation is education. Unfortunately, paying for school can be stressful, but it is possible for you to reduce the financial burden with scholarships. So why not make use of other people’s money? In today’s episode, I am going to share secrets to scholarship success to make it easier for you to secure scholarships.

Listen in as I explain the benefit of taking the time to apply for a scholarship—even if you are not in serious financial need or there are many other applicants. You will learn the best time to apply for a scholarship (hint: you can apply at any time!), why you should not solely rely on school-provided scholarships, and how to stand out from the crowd of applicants.

“Use the opportunities that don’t cost you anything and are going to give you opportunities to build your resume and make you stand out.” - Shelley Clayton
