We recognize that everyone uses 168 hours in a week. This program has been designed for university/college students and has been operating since 1981. We specialize in designing students' schedules to accommodate their commitments while hitting their SWP goals. It is important to realize that time must be diverted from somewhere in order to succeed at this. If someone seeks to be above average, that person will, more often that not, spend more time on his or her business.
The average person running a Student Works business sees their expenses (related to business) go up by $1000 to $1500, as per the recruiting materials. This amount is goal dependent and goes to things like gas, cell phone and marketing expenses (assuming you already have a vehicle or full time use of one). Running a business that involves travel from where you go to school will be more expensive depending on the individual situation. None of this money goes to Student Works. We front all of the material, home show, training, and support costs.
