How to be an adult is the biggest thing I didn’t learn in school. Shoot!
This is a real life problem for many young women coming out of high school, college, and graduate school. We go class for years and years, but somehow leave with some seriously lacking real world skills.
- How do you know what job you really want to do for work?
- What should you absolutely talk about with your boyfriend before you get engaged?
- What is an IRA/401k/403b and where the heck should I put the tiny bit of extra money you have?
- How do you navigate an adult relationship with the parents who still see you as their baby?
But, my mom was right when she said I was 13 going on 30. And now, I’m finally the age I’ve always felt. I’m sitting at 30 years old, married with 4 boys, own my own house, and multi-career. I’ve lived a lot of life in the last decade and asked an insane amount of questions along the way.
I believe that fellow women are our best assets when it comes to learning the little (but BIG!) things in life. Let’s help each other out, yeah? I’m sharing the things I’ve learned, and please shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have either A) an expertise to lend or B) a question you’re dying to have answered.
