Don't F*** This Up: How To Get What You Want In Life Book Review & Giveaway

What a year! 2020 has brought more than just unrest and a virus. It has produced small business devastation, lay offs, closures and so much uncertainty. Sending a child off to College in the middle of all of this? Better off, are you or a loved one graduating? It’s a scary future for them or maybe not so much. I am proud to share this book, Don’t F*** This Up: How to Get What You Want In Life. A Guide for Students & Graduates.

book for students

In a recent Q&A provided by the Author, Fred Stuvel he shared some more insights about what you expect. I will share 2 of those below:

1. Your book is titled, Don’t F*** This Up: How To Get What You Want In Life! That is pretty direct. What exactly do you mean by it and how did you decide on it? 

Due to this pandemic students and graduates will be facing one of the bleakest employment environments in generations. Opportunities will be limited, and the margin of error is much less than in former times. While the title is visceral, I wanted to emphasize the importance to my target audience that now, more than ever, it is critical to be prepared and get it right the first time.

2. COVID-19 has decimated the economy. For those who have been laid off, what is your biggest piece of advice as they look for a fresh start? 

Your mindset, preparation, and commitment will carry you through. Be prepared, be positive, and persevere. Understand there will be rejection and frustration, don’t take it personally, it is part of the process, so put it behind you. Learn from it and move on. Your determination and zeal will ultimately resonate with someone, so never give up, never surrender, and always move forward, even if it is one small step at a time.

Synopsis: Don’t F*** This Up: How To Get What You Want In Life

Thanks to a global pandemic, they’re entering adulthood, their college career, or the workforce during record unemployment, a terrifying economy, and social guidelines that have all but eliminated life as we knew it. 

And what about the millions of newly unemployed workers in America? As they look for a fresh start, how will they overcome the challenges of an economy decimated by COVID-19? If having a strategy for the future was important before, now it’s critical. The choices new grads, young adults, or the newly unemployed make and the practices they adopt right now are going to shape not only their career, but every other aspect of their life as well. 

Fred Stuvek clearly understands with expertise that not only with students beginning college or a career but that more people than ever are looking to start over with unemployment from COVID-19 at record levels – so he has advice for launching a new chapter! Get your copy today at Amazon!
