What a pleasure to spend time with Hanna Stotland, JD, and learn about her college admission journey and how it inspired her to help students in crises find their college path. Her perspective on business growth and charging what your worth is valuable for new and experienced IECs alike!

Thank you, Hanna! You add excitement and fun to our industry!

What a pleasure to spend time with my colleague, Zach Galin, chatting about how to market yourself, what it means to hustle, and how to grow a sellable business.

New and experienced college consultants can learn from Zach's business acumen.


I am thrilled to introduce my new podcast episode with Jenny Umhofer. 🚀

Jenny, you inspire me with your business acumen, integrity, and spirit. No doubt, this episode will inspire new and seasoned IECs alike! 🙌

To know them is to love them. 💚

It was such a treat to have the opportunity to chat with Lisa Carlton and Bob Carlton about growing College Matchpoint on the Business of College Consulting podcast.

Thank you, Bob and Lisa, for everything you contribute to the college consulting industry, including your generosity in sharing your best business growth tips with new IECs!

College MatchPoint


My esteemed colleagues, Jeff Levy and Jennie Kent were kind enough to spend an hour with me on the podcast and share, honestly, the challenges of starting a business and walking away from industries they were invested in.

If you're a new college consultant, especially one who is coming from a different industry, you can't miss Jeff and Jennie's stories and suggestions for building a successful business.

You both are gifts to the college consulting community! I appreciate you both sharing your stories. IECA--Independent Educational Consultants Association

"I love the financial aid appliation process," said no college consultant ever.

It's not glamorous, but I love breaking down the financial aid process for families and relieving some of their stress! ✅.

We finished our team book club book today, and I had to share another great quote from Jen Sincero:

“If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present.”
