  3. I know you've gotten your two interviews, so just a note about #6 Advice to teens.

    Tip #1: School IS important. Grades are your paycheck--one that you can increase by working harder. Tutoring another student is a good way to learn a subject better--and increase that paycheck AND the one you'll get later on.

    Tip #2: Education should never end. You can expect AT LEAST two full-time, 20-year, totally different careers in your lifetime. This means you need to be educating yourself for the next one before you finish the current one.

    Colleges are helping "older" students considerably. Online classes offer education at your own pace and schedule. While in high school you may be able to take an online course or one from your local community college. The credits are usually transferrable and they could be either basic freshman courses or just ones you are interested in. Those interesting courses may help you decide on your first career--or lead you to the second one later.
