Hello all!


Our Saturday morning shout-outs highlight a post/article/book/other that I’ve come across lately that deserves exactly that: a ‘shout-out.’ The goal here is to hopefully introduce my readers to other authors or bloggers that have had an impact on me, my writing, and my life.


This week’s shout-out is: Unsolicited Advice Given to an 18-Year-Old Stranger by me via Max Your Freedom

Max was kind enough to lend me some space on his blog to post this article, so first off – thanks! This post stems from a morning that Monica and I were waiting in a Panera Bread for some bagels and coffee for our staff and I noticed a young fella studying for the SATs.


My mind started to wander back to a time when I was in this young guy’s shoes. And before too long I had contemplated a dissertation I would have told my young self… if I only had the opportunity.


To find out what I would’ve told my 18-year-old self AND if I actually approached the young man, head on over to Max’s site and check this one out. Thanks in advance!


Thanks for reading!
