Is Your Fear of Money Forcing You To Choose The Wrong Major and Ultimately The Wrong Career?

Students and Parents pay attention to this story. . . Susan Hanshaw is an author, keynote speaker, and certificated minister. But Susan first began her work life in corporate America. She spent 20 years building a very successful career in the Direct Marketing industry culminating in a position as second in command of her firm with the title of Vice President.

Included in this rise to corporate stardom, was a high 6 figure salary, a stress level in line with the pressure an air traffic controller experiences, and the type of corporate “burn out” that plagues at least 50% of American workers according to Forbes: unhappy lives due to their jobs or the lack of purpose the job is missing.

As high school, junior college, college and university students–NOW–is the time to make the right decisions. Before basing the happiness of your life on your personal bank account, perks, or the prestige you believe will make you happy–take a closer look.

Examine your passions, your love of “what” you love, and investigate how you can turn a passion or love for something into a career that will energize your life.

Research your passion and create an intended action plan that will help you identify the correct major, identify the best career for your happiness, and that will ultimately help you attain this goal.
