December As a best business practice, you should contact 60 percent of your senior enrollment, 75 percent of your HS graduates and 70 percent of your junior enrollment by 31 December. Ask HS officials if you may set up in the teacher’s lounge so you may provide information about available programs. Again, this is the holiday season so schedule this visit at each HS to get maximum exposure. Provide refreshments at each set up. Try to have different RPIs on hand to give out. Have the HS announce your visit in the teacher’s daily bulletin. Be prepared to schedule presentations as requested for those teachers who respond with interest. Contact college students who are home during the holidays (remember that many first-year college students do not return to school after the first semester). Participate in HS holiday events. Establish a point of contact at the HS to obtain HS letters and/or transcripts during the holidays. By December, you should inform principal of your HS of those students who have enlisted and the education benefits they have earned.

How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie (summary, review). How to Win Friends and Influence People was one of the first books I read that really increased my social IQ. It has always stayed as one of my most favorite books and I definitely recommend reading it.

Here is a one page PDF I created, so we can easily remember the concepts in about 30 seconds:…

Big concept 1 (0:00) : Become genuinely interested in other people.

Big concept 2 (1:38) : Show respect for the other man’s opinions. Never tell a man he is wrong.

Big Concept 3 (2:21) : Talk in terms of the other man’s interest.

If you would rather get the ideas on Facebook first, you can join FightMediocrity on Facebook here:
