Welcome to the motivate grind succeed podcast or my goal is to give you practical usable tips and takeaways that you can use to maximize your productivity, improve your faith, push yourself to that next level and live up to 101% of your potential. I am not here to waste your time with long intros, unnecessarily long upload and spammy advice because that does good for no one. I get straight to the point so you can get maximum value out of every episode. Now with that, let's get you straight into this week's episode fusion. Yeah, this episode is going out to all my fellow college students out there is about that time a year. We are about to graduate For me. Exactly. It's around exactly one week from today May nine. That's my graduation day and you're probably asking yourself, you're in a similar situation to me.
Hey, I did it. I graduate or basically graduated what now? Well, I'll give you a couple of options you could do or could combine to come with an idea of what you want to do with this newfound freedom from school. So let's get this episode started. There really isn't any back story to this episode. Like how I'll give a little paragraph or something. So I'll just hop right into something that you can do. But before I do that, I just want to say congratulations to all of us graduates from making it through, it was tough. But through blood, sweat and tears. Here we are at the finish line and I'm positive. Someone else already told you this already. I just want to let you know that some random on the internet is also very proud of you. And so with that being said, what are some things you can do now that you've graduated? Well I've got a solid six for you. Number one travel now. I know, I know, I know if you're listening to this on episode release day, we're still going through this pandemic, but at least now you've got the time to think about where you want to go.
Nobody said you couldn't go on a google map. I'm joking. Don't, don't do the google maps think. But for real though travel. This is a pretty common one for recent college grads. Um, and again, like I said, it is kind of difficult right now. But I think everything about where you want to go and then when the world begins to open back up, you can go out and travel number to become a research assistant. If you're in the stem field and research really interests you. You may want to ask a professor you had in the past that you really clicked well with or really enjoy their class and see if their research that they're doing is something that you would like to partake it. It will give you great hands on experience into that world and help you narrow down what it is that you want to do with the degree, you just detained Number three invest in your passion, raise your hand. If throughout college you were broke and strapped for time. Well I can't see your hands, but I'm assuming you probably raising your hand right now. Okay? You can put it down. Thank you. Unless you made it a priority. You didn't really have time to invest in yourself and what you were interested in on the side.
But now that you're done with school, you have more time to focus on that and get those passion projects off the ground is the fourth option you can do, which is a person what I'm going to be doing or at least part of what I'm gonna be doing and that's returning for a master's degree. Now, some of you all just want to be done and say getting a bachelor was enough and if that's all you want, that's fine. Don't kill yourself for a masters if you don't need one. But if you're really driven and you want to continue your education, you can always go back and obtained a master's degree and whatever you want. It will look good on your resume and we'll instantly unlock higher salaries Number five is get an entry level job that's kind of what I'm doing right now as well. Now while I'm all for striving and being the best, you can be in performing 101%. You can't quite do that fresh out of college because everyone is in the same exact boat as you, Everyone graduated, everyone's got the same credentials behind their name. What makes you different chances are it's probably just going to be your personality but why not add on to that?
By also making yourself look more promising by having some experience under your belt. So it sucks. I know but everybody has to start or at least most people have to start at this kind of stage and working an entry level job preferably in your field of study in your main goal with this is to gain experience, put that experience on your resume so you can eventually get the job of your dreams as the saying goes and I'm going to tweak it a little bit here. Your high school G. P. A. Gets you into college, your college G. P. And experience gets you your first job and your first job helps lead you to land in your career. And lastly number six start your own business. No no no no no no no I know what you're saying like oh everybody's gonna start your own business. It's not that easy. Now look it doesn't have to be some million dollar a year revenue generating venture. You become some internet guru in his garage saying that all they want is knowledge okay. But it could turn into one who knows it doesn't have to be here here here. Let me go through this with you real quick.
For example, if you're really into fitness, everyone intends to come to you for fitness advice, you might be able to start a, a small fitness consulting or personal training company, grab a couple friends who are also knowledgeable about this and do some research because we live in the age of google so you can find out all the information you need and uh, he can make something happen. Maybe your fitness is in your thing. You can try knitting or making people laugh or fixing broken furniture, modifying cars, whatever it is with a little creativity, googling and elbow grease. You can turn passion into some profit. Just something to think about. And with that I know a quick episode, but I'm going to bring this week's episode to a close before you go. Subscribe to the show.
