Your Empty Nest Coach Podcast, Episode 19: Let’s Talk about Extracurriculars

Hello, my Empty Nest Friend!
 
I am unbelievably excited to have Carolyn Allison Caplan AKA Admissions Mom as a guest on my episode, today. Honestly, I could have spoken with Carolyn for hours, but, alas, I had to return to work from my lunch break.  But, no worries, we already discussed having her back on the podcast. Yay! 
 
In this episode, we chat about those extracurricular activities that are so necessary for a college application. Carolyn’s viewpoint is one that I adore, and her heart for the students she assists is evident and infectious. Seriously, take a look at the karma this amazing lady has on Reddit! Good stuff!
 
Whether you have a kiddo heading off to college in the next few years or not, there are tremendous nuggets of wisdom in this conversation with Carolyn. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed chatting with her (look at that screenshot)! As always, thanks for listening!
