Winner of the Axiom Best Business Book Award –
Geoff’s first book, The Busy Adult’s Guide to Making College Happen! is also the one he is most proud of. In this book, Schmidt outlines step by step, how working adults can attend college full time while also working full time. Eventually completing a bachelor’s degree in the process. Schmidt shows those who are interested how to do this even if they don’t have the time, money or motivation. Geoff wrote this from first hand experience because that is exactly what he did . Graduating magna-cum-laude (with pretty ordinary grades in high school) from his undergraduate program.
After several years in public accounting, he was accepted to business school at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management where he received his MBA. He graduated at the top of his class and moved to New York where he still works today.
Schmidt donates 100% of the royalties from The Busy Adult’s Guide to Making College Happen! to single mother scholarships.
