Make College Count: OneTRUEZone Helps Parents + Students Find the Right Path for College + Career!

If you are a student in high school or college, do you have a real sense of what kind of career you can get once you get past college? If you are a parent, are you aware of the potential jobs your student can get once they complete their degree? How about the cost of the education once they graduate? Can the student pay for all of it? Will they find personal satisfaction working in their field as well as able to support themselves financially?

5 SMART Steps for Success from Career to College (Helene Naftali)

These are all reasonable questions (and there are many more to add to this list including how long will it take a student to get through college?) When colleges expect a student to declare a major when they are sophomore students, that doesn’t allow them any time to TRY different majors on for size as well as do any potential internships. Add in outside or school activities such as sports, journalism or any of the arts, and a student has a full plate and then some to look at. What’s a student (or a parent) to do in this situation?

Turn to‘s Helene Naftali for help in finding all these answers out before the student goes off to college. What’s really interesting is what Naftali has created in that makes perfect sense for both students and parents. Useful for everyone for the insight it provides, there is a path to be followed that encourages internships, personal exploration and more along with the coursework and the book.


Listen to the podcast discussion I had with Helene Naftali about her program.

What is OneTRUEZone
I am not in favor of re-inventing the wheel. I was trying to create a synopsis of what Helene and OneTRUEZone does and then I found the synopsis on her site which is brillant.

Helene Naftali had a single ambition when she founded oneTRUEzone. She wanted to create a vehicle to empower college students to discover the career they were meant for, one that could lead to a life of happiness and professional fulfillment.

Helene found a significant gap in the career services available to young adults, and one that she was more than able to fill. Her passionate concern for the success of each young person is fueled by many years as a practicing psychotherapist. Additionally, as Senior Vice President of Investments for a major financial services firm, Helene also has 25 years of experience in helping families and individuals plan their financial futures. Early in her financial career, Helene was responsible for setting up training for new advisers to show them how to increase their success rate in counseling families on their financial futures. While balancing motherhood and two careers, Helene went on to spearhead workshops guiding people that were considering financial careers on how to determine if their hearts and minds were in fact dedicated to this path. It was this experience that served as a wake-up-call for Helene that her oneTRUEzone is to reach out to the many young adults needing help in making college count, and in finding a career that will truly make them happy.


One TRUE Zone is a career coaching program that empowers high school and college students to find their passion early in life and apply it to a career that fits them best.

We believe being passionate about what you do is the surest path to happiness and financial reward, and have created a powerful process to identify and nurture these unique gifts within us all.
