What Your Parents and Professors Never Taught You
By Chachanna Simpson

“…my goal is to prepare you for the real world.  Now, I’m not going to promise that you are going to learn everything there is to know about surviving and thriving in the real world from this book, but I’ll give you enough to get you started….”

Deliver on her word, she does! I wish I would have gotten a hold of this book when I graduated from highschool!  Thinking of an appropriate gift for a highschool graduate or still need to get one for a recent college grad?  This is an awesome gift and I’m sure after they read it they will be forever grateful.

In this book you get everything you need from applying for a job, the job interview, renting an apartment, protecting yourself with a variety of insurances, to budgeting and lots of good stuff on understanding your finances.  It was a nice treat to see a chapter in there on health.

Until then
