This week, more than 38,000 Utah teens will graduate from high school. Our family has one of those almost-grads and we will be sitting in the Marriott Center on Brigham Young University's campus on Thursday, ready to cheer when his name is called. He and his fellow graduates will listen to speeches they won't remember, switch their tassels to the other side and try to make their walk across the stage stand out in some way.
If you're one of those 38,000, I've got some advice for you:
1. Be flexible! Twenty years ago, social media did not exist, let alone careers focused on social media. Twenty years from now, new professions will exist. Learn how to learn, be willing to adapt and you'll be just fine.
