Are you still in high school? Starting out in college? Do you know what you are looking for in life? Do you know how to live life? Do you need a little help figuring it out?
Are you still in high school? Starting out in college? Do you know what you are looking for in life? Do you know how to live life? Are there subjects you did not learn in school that you feel they should have taught you? The answer to that last question is probably a resounding yes.
If you're about to graduate from high school, do you have any idea of what you are going to do? Here is another important question. Do you know what you are going to do to make your living? How about this question: Do you know how to plan your meals? How about balance your checkbook? Do you have an idea of how much it will cost you to live? What can you expect to pay for an apartment? Do you have an idea of what your other expenses will run?
Did you learn these concepts in school? From your parents? Do you want to make money? Or would you be happy just to work for some company?
All of these questions are very important. Especially for you, the recent or about to become, graduate. Here are a couple more questions you need to answer as you start out in life; are you going to be happy working for minimum wage, or a rate only slightly higher? Or is it even possible for you to make "a decent" living? Do you have to go to college? Could you make a lot of money in your own business soon after graduation from either high school or college?
