Question: ""My older sister will be starting school in September at McMaster University and I hope to join her in two years. With two people planning to attend University the cost of tuition is unreachable. Why does it cost more in Ontario for post-secondary education then the rest of the provinces and Canada? And how do you plan on making post-secondary education more affordable?"

A simple way of lowering costs of education is creating/promoting Internet Universities, where there are pre-recorded lectures and course materials on-line, with interactive questions for students from around the world.

I know many of you have been told how important and imperative University education is for your entire life.  I was told the same thing for eighteen years, by family, friends, teachers, and counsellors.  And, I became a successful business owner without attending university.

Today, university education isn’t the only option...  Maybe if you want to be a teacher, doctor, or lawyer – but there are so many more occupations and career paths today that do NOT require a university education.

Other options include colleges, trade schools, and apprenticeships that can open up fantastic opportunities for your carreer.

It is far more important to get the right education (like mentorship from an expert in your field of study), rather than formal education that may cause you to go into unnecessary debt.

There’s a great movie I would highly recommend that’s called “College Conspiracy”.  I don’t agree with everything it says (just like most things), but it is thought-provoking and gives an alternative view to the mainstream perspective. Press play below to begin watching.

Incorporate Accelerated Learning techniques. More has been discovered about how the human brain works in the last 25 years than in all history to date. The Accelerated Learning Method is based on that research. We each have a preferred learning style — a way of learning that suits us best. If you know and use the techniques that match your preferred way of learning, you learn more naturally. Because it is more natural for you, it becomes easier. And because it is easier, it is quicker. Hence the name – Accelerated Learning. By also incorporating well-researched memory techniques, Accelerated Learning makes learning an enjoyable, successful and satisfying experience.
