What will I gain from doing this 20-minute call?
As a teen, you’ve probably been asked what you want to do quite a lot. Not only is there pressure to name some high-income earning job, but those conversations usually end shortly thereafter, with little added clarity on how to get there. In this call, all the pressure is off. We want to, as genuinely as possible, explore where you’d like to be five years from now—academically, professionally, socially, personally, etc. At the end, I’ll also provide a tailored book recommendation to get you started on moving in the right direction.
What if I don’t know where I want to be 5 years from now? What if the future scares me?
These are both perfectly normal questions. They’re questions I’ve had to answer for myself, actually. If you don’t know exactly where you want to be 5 years from now, don’t worry! That’s exactly what this call is for.
If the future scares you, that’s okay too. Our goal for this call isn’t to lock you into a step-by-step 5 year plan, but rather just start exploring what kind of life you’d like to have. I promise it’ll be fun much more than it’ll be scary.
If our call is only 20 minutes, how will Mateo and I get to know each other?
I’m glad you asked! Due to the brief nature of the calls, we’ll be focused the entire time. However, I’ve compiled a few entertaining questions for you to complete before the call. After you submit your answers, you’ll get a link to a YouTube video with my responses.
Is there any prep work I need to complete before the call?
Yes and no. There isn’t any official ‘prep work,’ so to speak, but I would love to get to know you through the survey you’ll receive once you sign up for coaching! I also ask that you come to the session with an open mind and ready to brainstorm.
What if, after our call, I have questions for Mateo or want to meet with him again?
If you have any questions after the call, please reach out to me on Instagram @smartstartuniversity or by email at [email protected] I’ll respond to all messages from the week on Friday afternoon.
If you’d like to meet with me again, I encourage you to explore my paid coaching options. I’m a teen like you and know we aren’t exactly rolling in cash, so I try to keep them as affordable as possible.
