We had a great conversation with Emma where she walked us through her six-step process of helping teens to find career direction as well as learning decision-making skills that they can use throughout their lives.

We also talk about alternatives to college and Emma’s time at Ole Miss and the University of Central Florida and we asked her what kind of students may find these schools to be a good fit for them. 

Emma was a wonderful guest with some great insight on how to best help teens plan for their future. We hope you enjoy this conversation as much as we did!
