Our founder, Ben Kittner, worked for nine years at College Foundation of North Carolina, an extremely valuable organization that helps students plan, apply and pay for college. While there, he monitored trends and issues in higher education. His research for CFNC helped him realize that many college students have a growing need for personalized coaching services that can build a roadmap for their long-term success by helping students stay on track.
Besides entrepreneurship and consulting with high-tech companies, government agencies, trade associations and nonprofits, Ben’s career includes teaching undergraduates at North Carolina State University as an adjunct lecturer in communications.
He is the proud father of two high-performing graduate students, one becoming a school psychologist at Appalachian State University and one studying energy and resources at the University of California - Berkeley.
Ben has built a network of highly experienced executive, leadership and life coaches who provide individual and group programs to college students who want to clarify and prioritize their personal, academic and career goals, and receive the follow-up monitoring and support services to achieve them.
