Graduation season is upon us! Many will soon walk across a stage in a fancy gown, shake hands and receive a piece of paper that signifies years of hard work and dedication to a task. Well done!
Many more of us are looking ahead to the future, wondering about our place in it, our goals, and our purpose. We’re asking, “What’s next?”
