Toward Career

This section is for high school students exploring careers via job training opportunities.   Whatever your career goals are there is a huge benefit in participating in job training for a variety of vocations, especially basic trouble shooting and repair of cars, electrical wiring and plumbing.

  • http://discoveryourskills.com – “…Right now, there are hundreds of thousands of jobs just waiting to be filled by people with the right skills.

  • https://www.coursera.org/course/lead-ei – Inspiring Leadership through Emotional Intelligence – “Great leaders move us through our emotions. They establish a deep emotional connection with others called resonance. Their own levels of emotional intelligence allow them to create and nurture these resonant relationships. They use their EI as a path to resonant leadership through mindfulness, hope, compassion, and playfulness. Unfortunately, most people in leadership and helping positions (i.e., doctors, teachers, coaches, etc.) lose their effectiveness over time because of the cumulative damage from chronic stress. But humans can renew themselves, neurologically, hormonally, and emotionally.”
  • Check back.   I just started this section to remind myself to move resources over here.

Whatever an education is, it should make you a unique individual, not a conformist;
it should furnish you with an original spirit with which to tackle the big challenges;
it should allow you to find values which will be your road map through life;
it should make you spiritually rich, a person who loves whatever you are doing,
wherever you are, whomever you are with; it should teach you what is important,
how to live and how to die.

TOWARD ENTREPRENEURSHIP

The definition of entrepreneur is risk taking.   It makes sense to find a product or service to provide to order to create your-own-job when job openings are slim.    Online classes are the great leveler.   No one has to know that you are a teen or have a college degree.   As long as you apply yourself to the assignments and demonstrate excellent writing skills, there is no need to let age or education level be a limiting factor when attending online classes or launching an online business.
