Today’s students are hammered with high expectations for their academic studies. Basic life skills are mostly not taught in classrooms, so graduates are on their own to figure out how to live successfully in the everyday world. Without any guidance, where do you start?
Adulting 101 is a clever, compelling, and relevant manual that will show you how to:
Choose your boss, get a job (or at least not lose one) and deal with co-workers
Buy insurance and understand exactly what you need
Begin saving and investing your money
Buy a car
Set goals, prioritize, and get work done
Write a professional email
Navigate sex, dating, and relationships (but not in that order)
Manage your time effectively
Measure success as God sees it
And much more!
This book will give you everything you need to succeed and to make a real impact. It’s a manual of how to change the world, and be the person you were meant to be.
Adulting 101 is a must-read book for anyone, whether you are just entering the “real world” or have been in it for decades. The timeless principles shared by Josh and Pete will have you referencing the book for years to come.

It seems that some of the practical things an aspiring adult needs to know, like how to create a personal budget, interview for a job, or even take out a loan to buy a car are left to the “learn as you go” educational model. Josh Burnette and Pete Hardesty are out to change that with this fantastic and insightful new book, Adulting 101. It is a great book and a useful resource for anyone trying to figure out some of the basics of being on their own.
