The High Cost Of College Education
Posted on July 23, 2012 at 11:40 pm in Blog Posts by Jason Bond
I’d like to think Jason Bond Picks is like college, realistically a client pays a fee and must apply themselves to get results. That got me thinking, what would the cost per credit be for Jason Bond Picks if 6 months equaled one college semester? Given that guys and gals make upwards of $1,000 a day in chat regularly… you’d be shocked at what the potential return is.
With that in mind, I believe Jason Bond Picks is equivalent to taking two 3 credit college courses. I also believe I’m uniquely qualified to make such a comparison. No you won’t get 6 ‘Bond University’ credits per year, but I believe what I’m offering is just as valuable, here’s why.
In 1995 I graduated high school with a dream to play professional baseball. After a discouraging tryout with the South Carolina Gamecocks and the Atlanta Braves it was obvious I’d spend my 20′s and 30′s somewhere other than the Major League Baseball. Without a plan for my future, I did what many other ‘lost souls’ do and went to college seeking answers. Despite coming from a middle class household, I was the first in my entire family to go down the higher education path. Between 1995 and 2001 I changed majors quite a few times and jumped from one school to another… it was during that time a rude financial awakening came across me similar to an unexpected lightning bolt followed by thunder boom – college is expensive!
With that said, let it be known I’m a firm believer in education. I’m happy with how everything has turned out but I will say, Niagara University was my favorite school by far, not Brockport. When I finally graduated I had amassed over $70,000 in student loans. I was hired to teach elementary school just after graduation… starting salary $33,850. I suppose I could have made my way through faster and therefore cheaper but remember, I was a ‘lost soul’ back then, evident by the majors listed below.
Yes you heard me right!!! $70,000 in student loans… making half of what I owed in student loans and oh wait… that’s not counting the Masters in Education I was starting my first year of teaching.
I definitely WAS NOT swimming in cheddar back then!
I bring all of this up because I treat my service like a college classroom. Yes I put real money behind my trades, that’s necessary to show clients I believe in my system. Yes the portfolio is up a steady 37% since inception and 22% in 2012 or just over $90,000 profit. But the foundation of Jason Bond Picks isn’t how much money I make… last time I checked clients don’t get a piece of my portfolio… the foundation is education because all that matters is how well my clients perform on their exam beating Wall Street using my strategy.
Now in addition to my college preparation in education, I actually taught in public schools for 10 years in the state of New York before leaving to teach on Wall Street… adding further qualification to my claim that Jason Bond Picks is designed after or very similar to a college course. Think about it… Jason Bond Picks has a huge community (400 in chat alone i.e. office hours), bi-weekly webinars (Classes), building block video lessons (Resources), a master watch list which daily lists are built… (Homework), the list goes on and on how my service is a legit 3 credit course per semester or two classes per year.
Okay, so I know I’m biased but if I’m even remotely right… the value I’m offering clients with my fee is peanuts compared to the more than $70,000 I paid to make $33,850 / year at my first job. Look at how I match up to private universities, state schools and even community colleges.
[table id=7 /]
I went to all of those schools and those were my majors.
So when I graduated college the math was all wrong… more than $70,000 to get a degree in teaching (That does NOT even include my masters in education, another $10,000) to come out making half that, kinda funny I majored in stats at one time right?! I mean, those numbers just don’t add up. But it didn’t take me long to figure things out so I started “Bond University” in which I charge a small fee of $1,584 per year and trust me… many of my clients are coming out making way more than my annual teaching salary in a week making that fee look like peanuts. Bottom line, with a reasonable portfolio and application, you should be able to make 5x my fee per year which in my opinion is a college course worth taking!
