Five Things Your Child Should Unlearn to Prepare for the Business World

Many parents are in the process of sending their children off to college; many to their senior year and then to the world of work afterwards.  Given the cost of higher education, it is to be hoped that the young people in your life learned much in the academy that will make them successful.

Share this with your college (or even high school) senior so they can start getting ready now.
