In fact, as my career progressed and companies — including my own — began to outsource more white-collar jobs overseas, there was a common thread I encountered every day as I worked with people who were trying to find a new role in the job market— worry for the future. And they weren’t simply filled with worry for their own careers, but also for those of their children, many of whom weren’t anywhere near old enough to enter the workforce.
As a parent of two boys myself, I understand their concerns. As parents, we all want what’s best for our children to give them a leg up in a world that’s constantly changing.
Because of my unique experience both as an educator and a business executive, I have some uncommon insights that helped my sons succeed in college and beyond. In fact, one of my proudest — and most significant accomplishments — is raising my sons, who both became successful professionals who often seek counsel and advice on the very subjects I write about.
