I’ve been working with
young professionals a lot lately.
Partly because that’s what I’m attracting and
partly because those clever guys
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
(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.
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.
