Entering the Real World is a collection of practical ideas to empower young adults as they enter and adjust to the real world. The ideas are simple, straightforward and easy to adapt; no major life changes are needed (though some could result). Most high schools and colleges still focus primarily on academics and ignore teaching practical skills needed to thrive in the real world. Role models for young adults are often entertainers, Olympic athletes and sports figures, all of whom devote much time to achieve their goals. Self-help media most often teach about major changes that are needed to succeed with a new approach to living. Instead, Entering the Real World offers smaller but powerful ideas that can be applied immediately and successfully to one’s life without a “major internal overhaul.”Some of the book’s more than 140 ideas include how to:Interview successfully and enter the workforceGet great reference lettersThink for oneselfBegin building wealth (despite thousands of dollars in student loans)Manage time effectivelyCommunicate clearly in business and personal relationshipsBenefitsOver 140 straightforward, easily usable and adaptable ideasSave time and money by preventing common mistakesShorten the learning curve to adapt to the real worldGet ahead fasterGet a head start over your peersTouches on aspects of mental illnesses often overlooked or shoveled under the rugSpecial FeaturesMany ideas are cross-referenced for easy accessThe book is designed in small sections for easy reading on a mobile deviceMost sections end with a “Takeaway” and/or a “Take Action!” that, respectively, summarize the section and suggest actions a reader can take to act on the ideasThe “Takeaway” and “Take Action!” segments for each chapter appear at the end of the chapter as a summaryAuthor’s website available for:Download of files referenced in the bookErrataInteraction among readers to post comments and suggestionsProviding feedback about the book through a feedback page with an option for anonymity
