Do we underestimate the importance of the 20-something years? Live Q&A with TED speaker Meg Jay, Wednesday at 3pm Eastern
Dr. Jay, I loved seing your Talk at the conference, but found myself wondering how your advice translates to career as opposed to getting married and having a family. As a 25 year old with a great job, it's overwhelming to make decisions about my work and career when I feel like I'm still so much in the learning phase of my industry. What are your thoughts?
