What Next? The Millennial’s Guide to Surviving and Thriving in the Real World. This book changes everything!
What started out as a therapeutic platform for me to vent my frustration with society, Corporate America, our education system, personal finance and life as I knew it, spawned a 188 page autobiography of my life from ages 15 – 27. Along with a detailed 12 year account of my life, what emerged from this book was a step-by-step guide for everything I’ve done to achieve success. What is success?
Some people describe success based on your earnings. Some people describe success based on your level of happiness. I believe that success is best defined by both financial means and happiness. This is what I’ve been able to accomplish. At age 19 I dropped out of college to learn business. That almost sounds oxymoronic right? You’re supposed to go to college to learn business. Not according to me. After sitting in college my freshmen year, I saw the future of business and realized that our college system in its’ current form was too antiquated to prepare the next generation for the future of business. So I decided to learn business on my own. I taught myself everything I needed to know about emerging media, digital media, social media, seo, ppc, web design, graphic design, video editing, marketing and advertising, and consumer buying habits. After gaining 3 years of experience building businesses, I received an opportunity at age 21 to work with a digital marketing agency on the forefront of the new era of online marketing. A year later I branched out on my own and started a consultancy and rose to other opportunities working with businesses of all sizes from mom and pop specialty brands to Fortune 100 big businesses. I did all of this before 27 and without a college degree. Did I mention I’m also debt free? I guess you could say my story sounds like a spitting image of the American Dream right? Yes. It is.
However, I’m deeply afraid the American Dream is slowly fading away. Our education system has become antiquated. Corporate America has changed the rules for success, and Generation Y is grossly unprepared for new financial burdens prior generations could have never imagined!
For the past 9 years of my life I’ve been observing reality and getting s**t right every step of the way. I don’t say that to be egotistical. I say that to portray my foresight. I don’t think there’s anything special about my ability to “forecast the future.” I’m not super natural and I don’t posses powers that others do not. I simply open my eyes, see the truth, take action, and come out on the winning end every step of the way.
There are many great untruths that the next Generation has been told. Truth is what our society is missing a great deal of.
In What Next? The Millennial’s Guide to Surviving and Thriving in the Real World, I provide Generation Y (Millennials) with the new rules to success and I lay all of my cards on the table. This book is a masterpiece! But don’t take my word for it. Listen to what the influencers and the elite have to say:
