Helping a “Lost Generation” Find Direction
October 14, 2009 Leave a comment
Recently, Businessweek wrote an article, “Lost Generation“, that lamented the negative and potential long-term impact of the current job crisis on youth and young adults. According to the article in the U.S., “the unemployment rate for 16- to 24-year-olds has climbed to more than 18%, from 13% a year ago.” Wow! That number staggering.
As I digested the article, one of the first thoughts I had was how do we better prepare this generation to succeed in this economy? How do we stimulate personal economies at a time when the national economy is still stagnant?
I don’t believe the job situation is ever going back to the good ol’ days of 4%-5% unemployment (and if it does it will take an extremely long time). We need to stop focusing on the skills of yesteryear and shift our focus to equipping youth and young adults with the necessary skills to thrive in this new “entrepreneurial economy”.
I’m excited to be partnered with Top Flight Global Resources and Extraordinary Life Community Church to offer the Fly High Business Seminar on November 7th, 2009 in Conyers, GA. Click here for registration details.
You don’t want to miss this strategic opportunity to reposition your perspective, passions, and professional skills to thrive in the entrepreneurial economy. I’ll see you there!
