On this week’s episode of The 2020 Entrepreneur World (T20E World) I am with my special guest Steven Cruz. Steven is the president of Omega Educational Consulting, INC. He is also a facilitator who specializes in educational counseling, program development, and student affairs.

In this episode, Steven shares with us the most important skill for ACING college admissions and in your life. Steven explains that the number one skill is RESPECT. You need to always respect yourself first especially when it comes to starting your college career. When you start college, you have to figure out what you want to do in life. Unfortunately, we start college at such a young age that most of us do not know what we really want to do. BUT that is all part of the process of life, and when you make a decision whether it may be wrong or right, you have to learn to fail. IF you respect yourself, you will respect yourself from failing. Throughout the episode, Steven will guide you through steps on how to be SUCCESSFUL through the whole college process. 

He says interesting people make the most interesting applicants and his key advice is to always  “be faithful and keep on working!” 

Steven works with all levels and starts as young as students who are in their freshman year of high school! If you are interested in working with Steven you can visit  www.omegaed.com or email info@omegaed.com for more information!
