I have been building this business since July – unless you count the years and years of other experience that I use in building this business then this has been in play since 1994. I found that giving my workshops and seminars really helped me to formulate the lessons and the experiences that college students and young career people today need to be successful.
One of the worst things young people can do today do is be complacent. They can look around and see some people rocking and rolling on their goals and to do lists and I think it freezes them and makes them think “why should I start now?” I blame social media for this, honestly.
When I was growing up, I mean, I was aware of what some of my closest friends were doing and knew some of them were smarter and more put together than me but I did not know without a doubt that yes, they ALL were smarter and more put together than me. I think by viewing people’s social media, we get this “false” sense of what other people are up to and sometimes this makes us unable or unwilling to move forward on our goals. There are always some people who let their freak flag fly on social media (please if you follow me and learn with me, do not do this) but most people post their curated life, their acceptance letters, their perfect hair and activities…
It is important to not focus on what other people are doing and instead focus on the skills of the future. In my books, seminars and workshops, I provide real actionable steps on how to cultivate these skills for the future. Here is just a quick rundown of some of the skills I promote and how to get them:
