The tagline for Jennifer Kushell’s and Scott M. Kaufman’s Secrets Of The Young & Successful is “How to Get Everything You Want Without Waiting a Lifetime”. In this case – fame and fortune and money.
Both Kushell and Kaufman found success as young entrepeneurs and this is the angle they take this book in. They first encourage you to find out more about yourself – what is your “story”, what is your ideal life. Then comes tips for planning, and executing that plan – through “tasting” (trying out a job path for a while), networking, and other skills.
Some might feel that this book is focused more on materialism and financial gain. That may be the case; however, some of the ideas here are great for figuring out your life in general and what you want to do with it. Even if you’re not in a hurry, this book still can help quite a bit.
Secrets of the Young & Sucessful by Jennifer Kushell and Scott M. Kaufman (ISBN: 0743227581) can be found in stores and on Amazon.
