Show Notes

Mandee Hamann welcomes Kirt Manecke, a marketing, fundraising, and business development specialist and author of Smile & Succeed for Teens: Must-Know People Skills for Today’s Wired World.

Kirt shares the change in teens' development of social skills that inspired him to write his book in order to help teens and young adults build skills and become successful. He perfectly highlights basic tips for teens such as how to interview and get a job, develop customer service skills, volunteer successfully to aid in the development of leadership skills, and build self-esteem and confidence that teens and young adults are not able to learn from a screen. 

This episode will motivate parents to talk and encourage their teens to get a summer job or to start volunteering in a community organization and build those life skills!
