Then why are so many kids getting out of university and still not knowing what they're going to do for a living? This is insanity, to say the least. But what if you could find out the direction that is best for them and their personality before they spend all that money and time going down the wrong path? Well, you can.

What you will learn in this episode
♦ How to observe your child in a way that will, in the end, help them make a decision on what career they should pursue. (Tip, every year write down what they were “into” some things will come and go… but there will be a few things that show up time and time again)
♦ Being “famous” is the number one thing that kids say they want to be when they grow up because they want the instant success … minuses the hard work.
♦ Taking online personality test might not be a great idea for an impressionable mind and could steer them the wrong direction.
♦ Why getting a quality job placement assessment like the one Discover Pathwaze provides, will prevent the self-doubt and second guessing that can happen after picking their career path on their own.
♦ Encourage them to play to their strengths, and not their weakness. Playing to your strengths will make you happy and better equipped to deal with any problems that may come up because you enjoy what you are doing.
♦ Focusing on your weakness creates “Target Fixation” and dwelling on it rather than thriving in what you're great at.
