Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) May 16, 2014
As a young adult, Shufeldt said he lacked a mentor, which is his “only regret in life”. By writing Ingredients of Young Outliers: Achieving Your Most Amazing Future, he hopes to serve as a surrogate mentor to young people in accomplishing what they previously thought was not possible. During Career Day at EDUPRIZE, Shufeldt will present leadership traits good for any career found in chapters from his recent book. The students will also have time for questions where they can ask career advice.
Shufeldt originally spoke at an EDUPRIZE Career Day in 2013, after publishing his first book, Ingredients of Outliers a Recipe for Personal Achievement. He published the second book in the Outlier Series, Ingredients of Young Outliers: Achieving Your Most Amazing Future, in March 2014 after being inspired by students at EDUPRIZE and another local school to write a students leadership book. In the book, author John Shufeldt explores the traits of extraordinary individuals identified over nearly three decades of his professional career. Featured among these traits are: the importance of humility, good communication, learning, failure and kindness.
"Everyone needs a mentor, whether virtual or otherwise in order to spur each other on to achieve their goals," says Shufeldt.
EDUPRIZE is a publicly funded school that is free for kindergarten through 8th grade students.
