College graduate’s retrospective on the few random things that proved the most invaluable during four years of independent living.
Have you ever had a dinner with friends that you couldn’t really enjoy, your mind worried and preoccupied with all the historical facts for that 8:30 test tomorrow? College may not be all about grades, but grades sure influence a lot of things!
If you get good grades, you probably heard these words many times: “you are so smart, you don’t even have to try, everything comes to you so easily!” But the truth it – you aren’t just “that smart,” you certainly do have to “try,” and things do not “come easily” at all. Success carries just as much, if not more, hard work, stress and anxiety as struggling does! I can vouch for that myself.

With over twenty years of helping people with all sorts of anxiety issues, we call it our “business for good” – the pleasure of helping others put anxiety in its place. This is our brief story.
