Episode 93: Future Mistake #9 Who's Gonna Pay For That?

Oftentimes, emerging adults are given generic advice about their future, something like:
  • Do what makes you happy
  • You can be whatever you want
  • If you find your passion, you never work a day in your life
Now, I don’t have anything wrong with those sentiments. In fact, I wholeheartedly believe those ideas have merit. In fact, I would choose that advice for my kids before I went with:
  • Make sure you get a business/engineering degree if you want to make real money
  • Whatever you do, don’t study Liberal Arts; that’s just code for ‘broke.’
What emerging adults need, however, is a balanced, thoughtful approach to discernment. They need to be guided to explore their interests and passions and their innate talents and skills. They need help discovering pathways to pursue their aspirations. And they need help thinking through how they will pay for their lives.
