Career Packages

An assessment of your unique talents costs less than a college course:

just $500.

For 2012, the average course at a public college is costing $721 for a 3-unit course. At the average private college, that same course would be $2,421.   That money is wasted if a student is unaware of himself or herself.

Shawn Hales specializes in helping students and young adults improve their quality of life; achieve meaningful academic and personal goals; and uncover and exercise their leadership potential.
