I would like to say that I am interested in kick starting my career or starting a business. But that would be a lie.  My interests lie in writing, social work, community development and someday teaching theology on the seminary level.

However, the reality is that I’m scraping by, I have considerable college debt, and in the not so distant future will have parents to take care of.  I know little about business, how to get a good job and even less about start ups.

What would you suggest for a guy like me?

    You’ve got good self-knowledge, which is probably the most essential of all career tools. (In fact, here’s a post I wrote about that very topic: http://bit.ly/nii59S)

    It sounds like you’re on a great path. So many people your age have a ton of debt that I think you have to just push the problem to the side of your mind. Pay the minimum each
    month and stop thinking about it.

    Doing social work or something related to theology seems totally possible for you. Keep your expenses very low, live in a low-cost-of-living place, and you’ll be able to make choices that align with your skills and your dreams.
