Praxis participant Nick Tucker is killing it. At age 19, he’s working with a successful entrepreneur at a great company and building the life he wants. Here’s what he had to say in a recent email:
“During my senior year of high school, I had questions coming in from dozens of different people about what my plans were for the following year. It seemed like the only right answer was to attend a solid college. But my heart wasn’t in it. Even when I was just applying for colleges I could barely force myself to sit down and fill out the applications.
Growing up in a college town, I had a pretty good idea about what a typical Freshman year was like in college. It had virtually nothing to do with preparing for real life and establishing a career. I wanted more, but I was stuck. It didn’t seem like there were any other legitimate options available. Then I discovered Praxis.
Now just 4 months into the program, I’ve developed many different skills that have made me valuable in the workforce. I’m working in sales on a very large scale which has been a dream of mine since I got my first job as a server. I’ve grown intellectually every single month since this last September. I have access to an incredible network of amazing people who I know are rooting for me to succeed. The program has surpassed my wildest dreams and I wouldn’t want to be doing anything else.”
Nick has the most important qualities for success: confidence and work ethic. The rest can all be learned, and he’s doing it now.
Feeling the itch to get into the world and do something awesome? Intrigued by the adventure and challenge? Been thinking about it but not ready to pull the trigger? Why wait?
Praxis or not, don’t just do what you’re “supposed” to do because you can’t think of anything else. Take the reins. Be in the driver’s seat of your education, career, and life.
