flippingtheconvesation

For decades we have preached that young people need to graduate from high school, go to college, and get a job.  As a result, and by latest estimates, Americans owe nearly $1.3 trillion in student loans.  It’s time to flip the conversation and think differently about what it means to launch into the real world after high school.

Tune in to The Unleashed Radio Hour head each Thursday from 3:00-4:00pm (CST), on Business 1110am KTEK (streaming live at www.UnleashedRadioHour.com) for a heart-t0-heart conversation on why we need to flip the conversation and talk career planning before college planning.  Why is it that we need to start focusing on providing experiences for high school students to make well informed decisions about their careers first?  What can YOU do to help?
