In this episode, Shellee and Jay discuss: 

  • Teenagers having no idea of what they want to do with their life
  • The truth in having multiple skills or passions
  • Doing something that guarantees a return on investment
  • College preparation is not an age based thing.


Key Takeaways: 

  • Advice like “follow your passion” will not help teenagers in determining their career path. Seek assistance from people with skills to walk alongside them and guide them through the process of finding a fulfilling career.
  • There’s nothing wrong with having multiple skills or interests, but you may end up not realizing your full potential. So, commit completely to one field and then build that up because there are other factors to consider when looking for a career that fits.
  • Some things may be a good fit, but they are not a good choice. To avoid wasting time, money, and effort, it’s critical to find a verifiable career fit before beginning the college process.
  • College preparation is not an age based decision. It is your curiosity, desire, and drive to discover the verifiable career fit for you that will prepare you for college and help you thrive in the path you will take.
