My Advice to the Younger Generation with Carter Pline

I recently had a deep conversation with a 19-year old gentleman who had some deep questions for me. This young man, a student-athlete at Mount Vernon Nazarene College in Ohio, is looking to gain practical wisdom and insight as he is currently making some big decisions to set himself up for success in life.

My friends, listen carefully as Carter Pline asks me seven deep questions on life, faith, success, my decision-making process, legacy, and more. These include:

  • What does a typical day in your life look like?
  • What are you consistently doing every day to develop yourself and become better as a whole?
  • What is the best piece of practical advice you have ever been given that has stuck with you?
  • What advice would you give to me and my generation?
  • Does your faith ground you?
  • What is the legacy you hope to leave?
  • What’s next for you?

Regardless of your age, I believe this episode will deliver great value & IMPACT to your life. Additionally, please make sure you share this episode with your friends, co-workers, and family on your social media. Please tag me so I can reciprocate some love!
