    20 Life Skills Not Taught In School

    in Entertainment

    http://Successful Student A resource for students to excel.


    From http://successfulstudent.org/


    The following is an excerpt from: Successful Student


    An education should involve learning life skills that a person will carry with them after college in order to navigate relationships and careers and be a well-rounded, successful person. This article has compiled 20 life skills not taught in school, which are valuable in life in general. Though high school and college is excellent in teaching many valuable skills, our current academic curriculum doesn’t teach many aspects necessary to succeeding and thriving in life in general, such as financial responsibilities and investments, how to think logically–retaining information and not merely temporarily memorizing information, and how to apply such abilities to real-world scenarios which are bound to occur.

    Learn about Straw Bale Gardening with My Guest, Author Joel Karnsten

    in Prepping

    I had the honor of interviewing Joel and leaving tremendously encouraged about this method of gardening. As I think and prepare for my elderly years, gardening is not something I am willing to give up simply due to physical limitations and straw bale gardening sounds just like the ticket to keep at it! It is not only for the 'seasoned' gardener, as Joel puts it, but it is great for so many other circumstances and living environments.


    He is going to be one of the speakers you can learn from FOR FREE at the Home Grown Food Summit! (bit.ly/HomeGrownFoodSummit) But you'll want to register SOON . You'll see several people with whom you are likely familiar.
