Today's 20-somethings seem to have it all: but what about the next phase of life, and the inevitable expectation hangovers? What about the many men and women who discover they've just spent four to eight years training for a job they hate or are dumped for someone else by the person of their dreams? "20 Something Manifesto" helps women and men delve deeper into the issues of expectation hangovers and the life skills needed to create change and direction in one's life. The book's format includes stories and guided queries from 20-somethings, followed by commentary by Christine, who is a life coach and quarter-life crisis expert.Stories of life lessons, disappointment, celebration, struggle, making changes, learning new behaviour, drama, triumph, and laughter convey the struggles and challenges as well as the fun and general feelings about the 20-something journey. Each story is followed by an "action plan", "take-aways", or "suggested steps". Readers will discover practical advice written in the voice of a supportive coach. The combination of stories and coaching will inspire readers to learn how to lay the foundation of their own life with integrity, faith, and even a sense of humour. This type of manifesto is a must-have for this life-altering decade of life.
