Ever finished university and thought to wait…how do taxes work? How do I pay bills? Or, what even are mortgages? Same. The funny thing about school is, you learn the ins and outs of a plant cell but you never really seem to learn about the real world.
If only our teachers shoved the importance of networking down our throats like they did homework. When a networking opportunity arises, take it with both hands. Not only will you have the chance to practice your communication skills but you could also be shaking hands with your future employer or business partner.
- Perseverance Is Key
If you’re reading this, you were probably like me, the awkward slightly overweight kid who came last in every Sports Day event for 6 years running. Yes, you may not be the Usain Bolt of the school but at least you picked yourself up every year and gave it another try.
- Wisdom comes from life experience, not textbooks.
Remember when George shot Lennie and you had to write a 3000 word essay on it? It was pretty much pointless. Most of the lessons you learn about life come from actually experiencing it, so why not just swap AQA for adventures?
- How to Handle Money
They say ‘the dream is free but the hustle is sold separately’. The hard realisation after coming out of full-time education is that you won’t be able to swipe mummy and daddy’s credit card forever. We have all been in that situation where you feel like treatin’ yo self but your credit card is probably going to decline after buying a croissant.
- It’s Okay To Make Mistakes
It was frowned upon to make mistakes inside the classroom and if you did teachers (like mine) would say ‘did you not try hard enough?’ Well, isn’t ironic that some of life’s most important lessons are learned from making ‘mistakes’?
