Dave Ramsey principles and Dan Miller principles - basically where does true wealth come from and how to prepare for a successful life that has nothing to do with "finding a secure job".
Absolutely...Very important! Thanks
I would have definitely liked to read a book about this subject while I was in school. It would have explained a lot.
How to navigate the job application and interviewing process would have been a good lesson I wish someone taught me in school. They show you the skills for working but not how to get the job. Etiquette, language, preparedness, presentation.
I agree...I feel that my education (and I have an MBA) never taught me the stuff to be truly successful. I value my education, but I think there is so much that needs to be learned.
Thank you for your thoughts!
Here's what I wish school would have taught me:
*How to Win Friends and Influence People – Dale Carnegie
Those principles have done more to build my success than any geometry or algebra or history every has.
Dan...I agree! I love that book! Those principles have helped me more in life than anything else. Thank you for reminding me and your thoughts!
I wish someone had taught me it is ok -- beyond ok -- it is good to crave change. Every few years I need to shake things up or life becomes a drag. I'm not a "put you 30 years in and retire" kind of girl. I've spent a few decades feeling guilty about that, for being "spoiled" and "unsatisfied".
Now I've learned not to fight it, and I'm trying my best to use this character trait to my advantage.
Connie...Awesome! Neither am I....I embrace change - some people thinks it is crazy, but it has suited me well. Thanks for your thoughts, I appreciate it!
I'm glad you posted that. I'm having one of those moments myself. Thank you.
That's easy - how to best manage money. I have 20+ years of debt training and living BEYOND my means engraved into me, which has put me in a position now where I struggle to have the freedom I crave in my career. Dave Ramey's teachings are helping me to get on track, but it's easy to slip back into old habbits when it's what you had done for so long.
YES! Money Management is IMPORTANT. I actually spent 8 years as a financial advisor and this topic is definitely on my list. THANK YOU!
Practical math - budgeting, money management, etc.
