#110 How to Know if College is Still Worth It

In this episode, Lisa discusses:

  • Why Americans have lost faith in the value of college. 
  • How to know if college is worth it for your student.
  • Strategies for understanding your family’s reasons for your teen going to college. 
  • Identifying various career avenues and identifying the most suitable path for your child’s success. 


Key Takeaways: 

  • What might work for one of your children may not work for all of them. Make the college decision one child at a time. 
  • The cost of college is rising. Like all significant investments, be a good steward and understand where and how you should spend. 
  • Begin with the end in mind – college is a path to a career, not the be-all and end-all for your student. 
  • Many employers are now equally or more focused on skills rather than degrees. 
  • It is never too late to take the next step, find alignment, and make an informed decision about your student’s college journey. 


College capable does not mean college required. It’s okay to embrace being college-curious or career-committed. To do so is beginning with the end in mind.” – Lisa Marker Robbins
