A message to young adults: you’ll be okay.

I’ve been working with

young professionals a lot lately.

Partly because that’s what I’m attracting and

partly because those clever guys

at allworkallplaypodcast.com

keep giving Hot Coffee Coaching

sweet shoutouts on their show.

If I have one message for the

post-college, 20-something crowd

who didn’t go to school to become

a fill-in-the-blank

(doctor, lawyer, accountant, engineer),

but instead went to study something you love or

at least something you didn’t hate, it’s this:

It will be okay.

You’ll be okay.

You’ll find a job.

You’ll be good at it.

You’ll make money.

I promise.

How do I know this?

Because I see your brilliance.

I’ve worked with

enough young adults to know

they already know what they want.

Sometimes they need help with the doing

(resumes, interviews, online job search decoder rings)

sometimes they need help with the being

(confidence, communication, perseverance)

Sometimes they need help

lifting the veil of doubt that is already

settling on top of their hopes and dreams.

This is where you come in.

Encourage your young adults to dream.

Listen to their ideas.

Hold up the mirror and help them

see the brilliance and the possibility

of who they are.

Then, watch what they create.
