Career Advice: 'Follow your Blister'
We often hear "follow your passion." I am definitely guilty of saying that.

10 iGen Trends
iGen’ers are the first generation to enter adolescence with smartphones already in their hands.
In Jean M. Twenge's book, iGen: Why Today’s Super-Connected Kids are Growing Up Less Rebellious, More Tolerant, Less Happy - and Completely Unprepared for Adulthood*, she explores 10 trends that we are seeing about iGen and what that means for the rest of us.
I encourage every parent, teacher, recruiter, employer, etc. to read this book to understand iGen and the challenges they face. Some trends and research are completely shocking (e.g. mental health trends). Some trends are heartwarming (e.g. inclusivity). Either way, this book fueled my passion even more to work with teens!

"Purpose Crosses Disciplines"
"This day, when you have reached the hilltop and you are deciding on next jobs, next steps, careers, further education, you would rather find purpose than a job or career. Purpose crosses disciplines. Purpose is an essential element of you. It is the reason you are on the planet at this particular time in history. Your very existence is wrapped up in the things you are here to fulfill. Whatever you choose for a career path, remember, the struggles along the way are only meant to shape you for your purpose. " - Chadwick Boseman
