Changing one’s schedule can be tough but with the school about to open the choice becomes mandatory. Parents are forced to think about school activities suitable for their kids, the shopping and even the meetings to attend. A guide with few tips can help parents get through the transition. The first tip is usually to have a shopping list before going to the nearest store. A planned shopping saves on the cost and prevents the tendency to forget some items. FreePlus recommends parents to have the school making the supply list. A budget is the other thing to come up with because it helps one avoid buying unnecessary items. The best time to shop is when school is about to open as this is the time prices are favorable.
The other tip is to buy supplies and stock them. Some items such as the clothing and classroom supplies should be organized simply. It helps the child to find his or her item easily, and it makes school preparation simple. The other thing is the preparation and packing of meals.

After all that the last thing to do is to set a routine. The time for homework, school activities and sleep should be set and followed.

The Brown Agency was born in the summer of 2015 when Wilhelmina Austin (a part of the world renowned Wilhelmina Models network) acquired Heyman Talent-South, one of Austin’s most successful agencies for acting talent. Since then, they have grown to represent more than 450 talented individuals. By joining forces, they are able to connect more deserving talent with more incredible opportunities. Talent with The Brown Agency has access to openings across media: on the runway, on the television, at corporate events, and more. Since its inception, The Brown Agency has placed models with thousands of companies including Louis Vuitton, Dell, Toyota, and L’Oréal.
Leading The Brown Agency is CEO and President John Brown. John started in the industry as a model himself, working his way through college. He went on to head Wilhelmina Austin from its inception in 2010 and guided them through the transition to become The Brown Agency. At the time of the acquisition, John praised the potential of The Brown Agency in the press release saying “Both agencies find pride in selecting the best, prepping them on a larger market level and delivering the most professional, elegant, and dependable talent. We are now able to do this on a larger scale.” His words were echoed by Michael B. Bonnée, the founder of Heyman Talent-South who said, “Our combined talent and expertise make this a very exciting opportunity.” Michael still serves the acting talent of Austin in the theatrical division of The Brown Agency.
In the past two years, The Brown Agency has definitely lived up to the vision of these two men.
