What you will learn from this blog: Age-specific career advice that you can only get here.
The workplace is filled with people of all ages, from kids fresh out of high school born in the year 2000 to aging Baby Boomers and beyond. Whether you were born in the 1950’s, 60’s 70’s, 80’s, or 90’s, you can succeed big in your career right now. I don’t care about age, so whether you’re 20 or 50, if you can bring value to the marketplace, you can increase your income. Here’s my general advice for each age group:
You might not have a clear defined path yet. This doesn’t mean you should take your parents advice. You may not need college. Ditching college and getting a few years of experience in the marketplace before your peers might be the best thing you ever do.
You don't need to necessarily travel either, don’t go backpack around Europe. This is not the time to wander and “find yourself”. You need to start packing dough away. Delay gratification and look to first invest in you, then make as much money as you can. Remember, you can’t save it until you make it.
Too many people stop making new friends after age 30. Back in your 20’s you’re still meeting new people, expanding your network beyond your high school class and college class, but by 30 too many people have settled down with the friends they’ve already made. Start meeting new people and intentionally go out and network!
By your 30’s you should be promoted if you haven’t been job hopping. Figure out how to add more value to the place you already work at. You might just need to relocate. Shake things up. You don’t need to go back to school to get your MBA, but it might be time to take some risks if you’re starting to plateau.
if you’re not learning new things in your 40’s you’ll quickly become a dinosaur. Your career, your business should have taken off a decade ago, and if you’re still struggling it’s because you’ve made wrong moves or have the wrong information.
No matter how well you’re doing, now’s the time to learn something new. You’re even going to start becoming younger here or you’re going to start aging very fast.
Stereotypically this is the decade you should be seeing the fruits of your labors. I’ve made more money in my 50’s than my first 50 years combined. If you’re still doing what you hate and you’re broke, it’s now or never to try something new. If you got less than 100K at this stage you’re completely broke anyway so why not just go for it and swing for the fences?
If you’re doing well, stop counting down the clock to retirement. The more you look to retirement, the less productive you’ll become today. Forget about retirement right now, put your head down and make this the best career years of your life and enjoy it.
No matter what your age, you can make the remainder of this decade the best of your career!
If you're heading to 10XGrowthCon 2018, be sure to download the app and get your FAST PASS! Everyone has heard that time is money right? As an entrepreneur early on in my career I learned that my ability to earn and produce was determined almost entirely by how much I was able to get done in a day.
Here is a secret TIP... find ways to collapse time and get more done in the same 24 hours as everyone else. That could mean... hiring a housekeeper, a personal chef, an assistant.
Let's face the FACTS there is only so much time in a day and only so many days on a calendar... so yes, time IS money.
