I believe young people can grow up and have, not just a job, but a remarkable work life fueled by talents, passions, and purpose. Unfortunately, often schools and parents are not offering the support needed to get young people on this track. Here are a few tips to help you move your kids toward enjoyable and meaningful work:
3.Know that you do not know – ask questions and BE CURIOUS: Not even economic experts can predict the jobs of the future.
4.Customize the plan to fit the dreams, talents and purpose of your children: Together with your child, create an education, activity and job plan that works for them, related to their interests, not yours.
5.Balance college prep with career prep: An understanding of career strategy and real work experience, preferably related to their interests, is key to developing future success.
