    Have you ever wished that you knew what you now know when you were in high school? I have an Author of a non-fiction self-development business book who would like to submit a guest post on your site Escapee 925.

    I feel this soon to be released book will reach out to your audience – especially young teens, parents, future entrepreneurs, and business owners who are looking for practical strategies on how to succeed in their chosen career.

    The book is called Out of the Classroom Lessons in Success: How to Prosper Without Being at the Top of the Class. It connects with the audience by providing practical advice to teens and parents on how to be successful in their chosen life’s work, and what young adults need to know and learn to be successful. And this isn’t what they were taught in the classroom.

    It has been more than a hundred years since Horace Mann wrote the words, “Education…beyond all other devices of human origin, is a great equalizer of conditions of men”. When Horace wrote those words, being educated set a person apart from the masses. Today, everyone is provided with K-12 education and education alone is not enough for success. The reason is success requires much more than what is taught in school.

    Each child has the ability to make their own success. Filled with colorful illustrations, this invaluable guide helps you discover:

    Does practice really make perfect?
    Do good things come to those who wait?
    Does winning actually matter?
    How the average student can be highly successful.
    How the game changes after the diploma.

    Inspired by her experiences with her own daughters in school and her work with start-up companies and entrepreneurs, Cynthia Kocialski realized that many young adults graduate completely unaware of a new playing field that no one has bothered to tell them about – and that is not always predicated by superior grades or talents.

    Her article topics could be

    Cynthia is the founder of three tech companies. In the past 15 years, I have been involved in dozens of start-ups and have served on various advisory boards. These companies have collectively returned billions of dollars to investors. I have held various technical, marketing, and management positions at IBM and Matrox Electronics. She has an engineering and mathematics degrees from the University of Rochester and the University of Virginia.

    Cynthia Kocialski is having a virtual book tour during the month of Jan/February 2012. How much lead time would you need? I would like to send you her media kit.
