Surrounded by possibility but unsure of your direction? You’re not alone.
If you’re in your twenties, you’re likely feeling the combination of the excitement of this defining decade and the pressure to figure out your entire life. The thrill of newfound independence and opportunity can be quickly squelched by worry, disillusionment, or disappointment. Like thousands of other twenty somethings, you may have experienced what life coach and quarter-life expert Christine Hassler calls an “Expectation Hangover.” This manifesto explores the all-important questions and life choices of these turbulent yet exciting years.
Twenty somethings may commiserate about the challenges they face, but few resources offer practical lessons or suggestions. In these pages, quarter-life men and women tell their stories, sharing their successes and failures, along with their frustrations and realizations. The author’s insightful commentary and “take away” suggestions provide the tools and skills you need to create change and direction in your life. You’ll recognize and articulate your personal goals, paving the way to what you truly want.
“In 20 Something Manifesto, Christine Hassler teaches the class you wish had been offered in school — Life 101! This book is packed with real-world tools twenty somethings can use to create a successful life on their own terms.”
— Greg Behrendt, coauthor of He’s Just Not That into You and It’s Called a Breakup Because It’s Broken
“Christine Hassler demonstrates a true gift — the ability to inspire twenty somethings to take stock of where they are and take the steps to become the people they want to be.”
