Want to become one of those people who actually loves what they do for a living? Test Drive Your Future gives you the advice and solutions you need to become both successful and happy on your college and career path.
We think everyone deserves the chance to do something with their lives that interests, inspires, and fuels them. And yet recent studies show that over half of all U.S. workers aren’t happy with their careers.
That’s really sad, especially considering how much of our lives most of us spend working. Did you know that the average American works about 72,000 hours between the ages of 22 and 62? That’s a lot of time! Especially if you are doing something you don’t enjoy.
We think that you can do it differently. That you can actually find something that you will enjoy doing with your life. That you can find a career that fuels you, meaning that it will support you both emotionally and financially. That you can choose to make your 72,000 hours count.
Choosing a career with confidence, clarity, and purpose is the smartest strategy for making the most of your college education (saving you time and money) and ensuring your future happiness and success.
Test Drive Your Future is all about helping you choose a college and career path:
- that is a really great fit with your unique skills and talents
- that will not place you in crippling student debt
- that will interest, inspire, and fuel you for years to come (emotionally and financially)
And doing so in a way that makes you feel both confident and clear about your decision. What we call being “in the driver’s seat” of your life.
About the Founder, Jim Hood
I really struggled with my own decisions about college, career, and life path. As a result, I have dedicated myself to simplifying these decision-making processes, with the goal of helping as many young people as possible to avoid similar struggles.
I am so passionate about helping young adults, and their parents make better decisions—about life path, college, career, AND money that I co-authored (with my wife, Beth) three books on college and career choices for students, and founded the College and Career Relaunch coaching program.
Beth and I are equally excited about entrepreneurship and have built four successful businesses together. We’ve designed careers that allow us a significant amount of freedom and flexibility to raise our family in beautiful Hawaii and are proud to be among the 30% of Americans (according to a recent Gallup poll) who can honestly say, “I love my work.”
