New Year’s Resolution 2017
My 2017 New Year’s Resolution is to eliminate the information barriers that exist for Millenials in education and early career development. It’s probably going to take a lot longer than 2017, but it’s a worthy cause.
When I wake up every day, I ask questions like — what is truly important for Young People and students…GPA, test scores, networking, extracurricular activities, fitness, leadership, hard work, friendship, family, etc… how can you prioritize when the definition of “success” pulls you in so many directions?
And at the end of the day, I will never have all the answers. But if I’m lucky, I can find experts. Experts who will help me share the information with all the young, confused people out there who get different advice from everyone and everything advertising to them.
Where do we go from here?
I don’t think Millenials get enough credit for the “slough” of information we have to overcome on a daily basis. Prioritizing has never been harder. It’s the Paradox of Choice — millions of people can compete for your time and attention whenever you open a device.
So based on that, you’re thinking — do Millenials really need one more source of information competing for their time and attention?
My goal is to become the best facilitator of unbiased, expert advice for Millenials on navigating the challenging waters of college and career development. It wasn’t easy for me or my friends, and it’s not easy for adults, either!
Everyone’s confused. Especially Millenials. I don’t want to spend another 50 years being confused. I’d rather help people out of there confusion.
