Launch Your Life by Kenny Silva

Launch Your Life (A Guide to Growing Up for the Almost Grown Up) by Kenny Silva is...well, the subtitle pretty much explains what it is :). There are five main sections: Identity, Career, Finances, Home, and Growth. The author starts with explaining that we need to find our identity in Christ. This reminds me of what my mom tells me and it's an important reminder for everyone. He then talks about dealing with changing relationships/friendships, dealing with fear, and dealing with failure. In the career section, there are tips for networking, interviewing, negotiating, and writing a good resume. In the finances section, he covers saving, giving, and budgeting. I was inspired to put together a sample budget for when I someday have a steady income. This section also made me think about how it'll be wise to start investing in retirement once I have a regular job...the sooner, the better. In the home section, the author helps readers decide whether buying a home or renting is right for them and how to go about doing either one. The last section is about personal and spiritual growth. While those in their twenties should probably already know most of the stuff in this book, it's nice that there is an easy-to-read guide written by a Christian which they can refer to :).

~I received this book from Thomas Nelson/Booksneeze for free in exchange for my honest review.
