Explanation of the Book:

New York Times bestselling author Julie Lythcott-Haims is back with a groundbreakingly frank guide to being a grown-up What does it mean to be an adult? In the twentieth century, psychologists came up with five markers of adulthood: finish your education, get a job, leave home, marry, and have children. Since then, every generation has been held to those same markers. Yet so much has changed about the world and living in it since that sequence was formulated. All of those markers are choices, and they’re all valid, but any one person’s choices along those lines do not make them more or less an adult. A former Stanford dean of freshmen and undergraduate advising and author of the perennial bestseller How to Raise an Adult and of the lauded memoir Real American, Julie Lythcott-Haims has encountered hundreds of twentysomethings (and thirtysomethings, too), who, faced with those markers, feel they’re just playing the part of “adult,” while struggling with anxiety, stress, and general unease. In Your Turn, Julie offers compassion, personal experience, and practical strategies for living a more authentic adulthood, as well as inspiration through interviews with dozens of voices from the rich diversity of the human population who have successfully launched their adult lives. Being an adult, it turns out, is not about any particular checklist; it is, instead, a process, one you can get progressively better at over time—becoming more comfortable with uncertainty and gaining the knowhow to keep going. Once you begin to practice it, being an adult becomes the most complicated yet also the most abundantly rewarding and natural thing. And Julie Lythcott-Haims is here to help readers take their turn.

Adulting can be hard, it can the most gruesome task as it pulls you out of your childish-innocent bubble and throws you into a world that isn't always pleasant.

It can break you, torment you, and even question your own beliefs. But that's the beauty of Adulting. Once we pass this strenuous phase, we emerge stronger and tougher and as the better version of ourselves. Adulting Unfiltered is an attempt to showcase 'Adulting' in its truest and honest form.

Explanation of the Book:

The Career Planning Guide, Planning Adulting is a motivational workbook designed to help you find inspiration and direction. Find the career you deserve through a specific, step by step format. Through only 10 Chapters you will be guided to explore your past, present and discover your goals to use them planning your future. Use this direct, specific method to educate, understand and motivate yourself to reach your full potential in a successful career. This guide is the first step toward a more rewarding life through exercises and guided reflection. It can be used to choose a Military Occupation Specialty (MOS) and separations, College degree major and as a college guide, avenue for self-employment, become an entrepreneur, navigate new business enterprises, overcome life obstacles and depression, job hunt, find yourself (self-help), resumes, interviewing & confidence building, knowing and pushing your limits, goal setting and understanding the reasons behind them, becoming a more positive person, retirement planning and so much more. The purpose for this guide is to inspire. Not for me to inspire you, but for you to inspire yourself. To find a direction to head towards, and the motivation to do so. By the end of this guide it is my goal for you to have a clear understanding of what career you want during your pursuit of happiness. You may be a high school student, college student, or already in the work force. You may have children, responsibilities, and maybe even reasons you are telling yourself you cannot make a change to find the career you deserve to have. This is not the case. We all have options - sometimes it's the vast sea of options we have that can debilitate us from deciding a direction to go. Fear not, we're going to "weigh" these options on the scale of life. You may be reading this description deciding if this book is right for you. I am proof that this guide works, and the time taken to follow this steppingstone is worth every second. It is not my intention to put you inside my strange head, but to help you use my research and planning skills in your own mind to find your own North Star. So, who am I? Some "young buck" from New York trying to give everybody advice? Negative ghost rider. I have done well, but I'm not the type of person to flaunt it or enjoy talking about it. I am grateful for what I have and may be the happiest person alive. One of my goals is to help others rise to their potential -by helping them find what direction that potential may be best pointed. I simply want to show you how I bought my first investment house and $20,000 motor home at 22 and finished my bachelor's at 23 while Active Duty in the Marine Corps. How I became my franchises' "youngest franchisee ever" at 24, bought my second house, first commercial property, started two more businesses...and so much more through the years. Now, do I promise you will make your first $1,000,000 before 30 and it will be easy? Nope. Not every career is for everyone, hence this guide. If money is your direct objective, strap in; while this guide is not for becoming rich, it may help you find the career you deserve to get you there. This guide will require you to develop a vow to yourself and to spend real, true, American blood, sweat and tears to complete it. Remember, I spent 6 years on and off writing this guide. Determination is going to be needed. Let's use a clear-cut, kiln dried, hog tied method to get you where you want to be, and then create a plan to make it so. Take this journey step by step, chapter by chapter and remove interruptions and distractions when you do so. When an idea or thought pops in your head put it on my copyrighted chart included in this guide. There are many guides, but THIS ONE IS YOURS!
