Chirayu’s Answer

Being successful can mean different things to different people, but there are some general tips that can help you achieve your goals: Define what you want to achieve and break it down into smaller, achievable steps. Make a plan and track your progress. Once you have a plan, take action and start working towards your goals. Don't wait for the perfect opportunity or for everything to be perfect, just start taking steps towards your goals. Continuously learn new skills and improve your knowledge. This will make you more valuable and give you an edge over others. Connect with people who have similar interests or work in the industry you want to be in. Attend events, join online communities, and make meaningful connections. Stay focused on your goals and don't get distracted by things that don't matter. Stay motivated by celebrating your successes, and by reminding yourself of your long-term goals.

As for making money as soon as possible, there are many options available depending on your skills and interests. Here are a few ideas: Offer your skills and services as a freelancer in areas such as writing, graphic design, web development, or social media management. Start an online store and sell products through platforms such as Etsy or Amazon.
Tutoring: Offer your knowledge and skills as a tutor in areas such as math, science, or language. Sign up for delivery or ride-sharing services such as Uber, Lyft, or DoorDash. Look for part-time work opportunities in your local area or on online job boards.

Remember that starting any new venture requires effort, dedication, and patience. Focus on building a strong foundation, developing your skills, and providing value to your customers or clients. Good luck on your journey!

david’s Answer

Hi, Aliyah,
I feel your pain. In my youth, I was in a similar position, having enjoyed HS, but no plans beyond. I remember the stress of family and others wanting to know what career I was going to do. Heck, I had no idea and the questions just gave me more stress. My suggestion is to just continue forward with your education. If in HS, try to take a few courses that interest you or join a club that focuses on your interest. If contemplating college, just go. Just go and don't worry about a major. Once there, you will be amazed at the windows that open up to you. Education will be the strength that helps you make decisions. If you have a HS guidance counselor, talk to the person. But, whatever, continue your education. That is like continuing to put money in the bank, even when you don't know what you want to buy. Education will set you free and that will help you locate work that interests you. Money? the money will follow. Don't worry about getting rich; just focus on an education and you will do fine. I struggled myself after HS, into college, out of it, back in... it's stressful, but life will work out. Just IGNORE any pressure to make a quick decision. It's your life. All the best to you.

Lalitha’s Answer

Hi Aliyah, First congrats to you for thinking of your future, wanting to set goals and figuring how to get there. Make sure you focus on getting a degree. Along with that, identify what you like to do. Participate in as many extra curricular activities as possible that enables you to try varied responsibilities and see what gets you motivated and excited. For example, you could be an event organizer or be the marketing manager for a club in your school/college. You could be the treasurer for a committee, try acting, public speaking, teaching. As you do different activities, you will learn more about your strengths and passions, and that can help you veer into those professions and that will take you to a path of success. For example, if you like event organizing, you could become a project manager. So be bold and go outside your comfort zone to try different roles and activities. Also, be clear about how you define success. Success is not just about making money. It is also something that keeps you motivated and energized along with paying your bills and having a good lifestyle. Good luck to you!

Rita’s Answer

The first question I would ask is what is your definition of success. I want you to know that although money is essential, it does not bring you happiness.

I feel that any job is an opportunity to learn. You can just observe and learn how to deal with people.

You can start making money any time. There's an app called Next Door and I've seen people posting job opportunities. Just today, someone was willing to clean the driveway and wash people's trashcans. Others have offered to walk dogs, pull weeds, mow lawns, or babysit. Each one of these are opportunities to learn a skill.

I don't know your age but you can also work at a fast food restaurant and work your way up. Although this may not be your goal, you learn how to deal with people (coworkers and customers), how to manage your money (look at your paycheck and how much is taken away for taxes), and how the big companies set up a business. You take this knowledge for your future.

When I was in college, I worked at a music library. I used this time to study. Also in college, they had internships. Although you may not make any money, it's a chance to learn from others and see what the future holds for you in that field. If you don't like that field, then that's also a learning experience. For example, there was a couple who finished medical school and they both did not like it. Unfortunately, they already completed their education. If they worked in the field prior and did not like it at that time, they would not need to apply to medical school.

Case’s Answer

I would add the following advice: Seek out mentors. Who do you look up to? Who do you view as successful? If they have a biography or autobiography, read it! Then reach out to them with specific questions. Most successful people will always make time to mentor young people who want to follow in their footsteps or learn from them. Start journaling or blogging now. I wish I had when I was young! Surround yourself with positive and driven people with good work ethic. It's contagious!
