The Alpha release of The Affluent Student e-book will be available on December 5, 2011! To get your copy, go over to my Facebook fan page here and “Like” the page. Then, share that link with everyone you know! I’ll be putting the book online this weekend through my fan page, and for those of you who “Like” before it’s up you will receive the copy as soon as it’s available. This will be a pre-publication version so I ask that you read it, share your critique openly and let me know of any typos, problems with flow and logic, references that belong in the blog but not in the book, and so forth. I’d also like to know what you don’t agree with in the book. I’m looking to finalize this project and formally publish the book in early 2012 and your critical eye will go a long way towards making that happen.
I’m also going to change up the direction of the Affluent Student. To date, most of my articles have been educational in nature and have usually been posted 4 or more times per week. Going forward, I’ll be changing the frequency of posts to 2-3 times per week. Our focus will still be on the primary concerns of the Affluent Student. However, the articles will have more analysis of current events related to education, families, and careers and will focus on stories and questions from the readers. From time to time, you’ll see the educational articles cycle back through and be updated with relevant content, and I’ll be working on the blog to tie related posts together. In short, I want to shift the focus to you, the reader. But at the core, The Affluent Student will never change. It will always be about helping parents raise lifelong learners.
I’ll close with this quote that I just ran across: Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow. (Anthony J. D’Angelo)
If I haven’t said so lately, thanks for reading and God Bless. Please spread the word about The Affluent Student!
