Don’t say I didn’t warn you…
The Smart Student Secrets community has grown a ton over the years but there has been something brewing in the back of my brain and I haven’t liked the smell of it. We’ve been getting plenty of new people involved (and that’s cool.) The numbers all look great with thousands of readers. But… something was wrong.
For every new reader we got – the participation we got from those readers didn’t seem to increase.
And I don’t do this for numbers. I don’t invest hours of my life into this stuff to increase a number. I invest my life into this to try and help people. I want to find the students like me and get them on the right path – earlier in life than I did.
That’s why I’ve decided to change things massively. Part of that will affect you.
I’m realizing – I can’t help people that aren’t seriously interested in getting that help. I’ve just removed nearly a third of the people subscribed from this newsletter based on their non-participation. And that’s just the beginning.
If you don’t enjoy these email and absolutely love the idea of improving yourself then please remember the unsubscribe button on the bottom of this email. No hard feelings. I’d love to help you if you’re interested in being a part of the team but I need to focus my energy on the people I know I can help.
With that – please participate if you want to be a part of the new tighter Smart Student Secrets community. What does that mean?
- Open the emails
- Read them!
- Click on the links
- Reply to them (even if it’s just to yell at me.)
And if you ever stop getting these emails then feel free to come back to Smart Student Secrets and resubscribe. That would certainly confirm your interest.
What does this change mean for you?
- More focused messages
- More responses
- (Probably) more of a social media presence
And one more thing that’s super important…
Please check out this survey. It’s like 8 questions and should take you 2-3 minutes to fill out. It’s going to help me hone in on what you guys are really interested in. If you start this survey – expect a special thank you email later this week.
Anyway… I’m interested in hearing any ideas you have to improve this community. My goal is to make it smaller – and more effective.
Better grades shouldn’t be a chore. It should be a pleasure.
P.S. Remember – you’re always welcome to reply to our messages to ask questions or provide feedback.
CAUTION! Don’t Let This Happen To You
This is an absolutely essential read for anyone on this blog.
R. is a college graduate that I know. He went to one of the best colleges in his field. He worked hard. He scored high. He did everything he was supposed to do…
He’s a smart guy.
Now R. has the degree… but not much else except tens of thousands of dollars of student loan debt.
He lives at home with his parents barely able to get by paying his loans off… He blew it because he wasn’t ready despite the high scores.
It can give you the fast-track in life…
But it’s not everything.
You need more than just good scores. You need:
- Efficient learning strategies (you can use through life)
- High-scoring testing strategies (to prove you know your stuff)
- Pareto-esque prioritization systems (to use your time better)
- An enjoyable life WHILE learning and scoring high (because if it’s not enjoyable, you won’t keep doing it.)
Welcome to Smart Student Secrets. I’m Aaron.
Right now, I’m giving you some of my most powerful strategies to improve your scores and improve your life –
