Young People Giving Adults Advice

Young People Giving Adults Advice

Welcome to Young People Giving Adults Advice – a place where we hear voices that we’re not used to hearing on subjects from leadership to identity politics, society, success and money. We believe that if we have enough open conversations that we’ll be able to broaden our minds long enough to let some new thoughts creep in and help us figure out how to solve the strange predicaments we are experiencing. If we can bridge the gap between young minds and the current gatekeepers of the professional and political world, maybe we can gather new viewpoints and get closer to a true unity. From there, we can really win from greater creativity, innovation and a way to truly hear each other. Please contact me on hello@youngpeoplegivingadultsadvice.com if you have any questions or know an amazing young person who would be great for us to interview. This podcast is powered by MARCHMADE MEDIA - http://www.tristanmarch.com/ & English For Business - http://www.englishforbusiness.com.au/podcast/ … And if you’re looking to record remote interviews we use and highly recommend Squadcast!

His advice to adults is:
- Stop saying, "when we were young, things were different" because things are always changing and you should learn from what is happening rather than ref...

Filippo is 23 years' old and has always felt that he wanted to do something beyond the small town he grew up in. He is a young person who likes planning a lot and this has meant some failures along the way when things haven't turned out the way he wanted - yet, because of this, he has learned a lot and has a very different relationship to 'failure' now - even looking forward to it in some ways.
