Ep. 22 | A Message For Your Teen

In today’s episode, I depart from our normal format. I speak directly to teens who are going through an enormous shift in their lives. I address: (1) the opportunity in front of them, (2) their life’s operating system, and (3) decision-making.

Show Notes:

In today’s episode, I go right to the source - your teenager. In a departure from the usual format, I bring what I normally reserve for inside PrepWell Academy, directly to you and your child.

Part of the reason for this experiment is because many parents have told me that they enjoy listening to the podcast with their children in the car.

I thought I’d try to enhance that experience by producing a podcast that was actually meant to be listened to together in the car.

I hope my message resonates with your child, or, at a minimum, opens up the dialogue between you and your teen. 

Today’s topics include: (1) the amazing opportunities that high school provides every teen, (2) a frank discussion about preparation versus procrastination, and (3) the impact of split-second decision-making on long-term success.
