College students graduating in 2016 may want to pick up a copy of Ajamu Kambon’s “Do You” before they make the decision to join the work force this year. Unbeknownst to most college students, many of the seemingly small decisions they make pertaining to their education can have a dramatic effect on not only their future career, but their way of life.
In his book, “Do You”, author Ajamu Kambon shares his worldly wisdom, written in a down-to-earth tone that college students can relate to, with those who face difficult and life altering decisions. Choices such as enrolling in a pre-requisite class in college may not seem important at the time to students who are looking for easy credit, but Kambon advises, “Save yourself a lot of money, stress, and trying to scramble for a job by simply taking the classes that interest you and are helping to prepare you or ignite the flame for you to pursue your dream career.”
Kambon also shares his wisdom on a number of issues that are relative to freshman and seniors alike, including advice for freshmen in chapters: “stop trying to prove s*** to people,” as well as advice for seniors seeking that first job after college in, “No life should be wasted chasing money.” Kambon gives his two cents on going to parties, “spend time with the people whose company you enjoy,” and advice for relationships in college within, “Be yourself now so less hearts are broken.” He even shares a few words on preparing for finals in, “Grades do not determine greatness or financial security” Kambon closes “Do You” with his 10 steps to wealth generation and monetary success (which is notably different than perceived success).
“Do You” is an empowerment tool for those who need it most – college students. The takeaway from “Do You” is that, Kambon points out, many students make decisions based on what their parents, peers or counselors tell them, when in reality, the only person who knows what’s best for yourself is – yourself!
