Great Advice

The author provides some very practical advice for
young people just starting out in their careers.
He begins by addressing college entrance requirements.
Federal student aid, scholarships and community colleges
are the places to seek help. Surprisingly, not all colleges
rely on the SAT exam. WWW.fairest.org lists 750 college
programs that don't require the standardized SAT or ACT
exams. Nevertheless, students will benefit by explaining
their strengths, goals, demonstrated ability to work and
other admirable personal traits on the application.

College is a bridge between adolescence and the real world
of work or owning a small business. The author encourages
young people to avoid unnecessary debt and stay solvent.
It's important to have fun and recreation. Nonetheless,
learn to splurge prudently and within a well-defined budget.

Boundaries are important. Set them to provide enough time
to complete your assigned tasks comfortably at school
and work. Time to relax is critical in college because the
demands are considerable. A mentor is critical to focus
your efforts on expectations. Finally, your career choice
is paramount. Pick a career consistent with your personal
profile. Ultimately, you must enjoy your work with a
passion. Good luck and acquire the book. You'll be glad that
you did so.
