Turning 30 is one of life’s major milestones. It’s something that many adults look forward to as it comes with new life experiences. However, there are a number of things to tick off your bucket list before turning the big 3-0.

  1. Work For Someone You Admire

By now, you most likely have a list of people who you look up to in your line of work. Though finding employment is tough as it is, make it a goal to work for one of the people who inspire you. It might even be an unpaid internship. However, the knowledge you will gain will give you the skills you need to achieve your dreams.

  1. Be A Mentor/Volunteer

By the time you are turning 30, you should have at least one mentee under your wing. The youth are lacking mentors which is why many of them have no clear direction in life. Being a mentor or a volunteer not only helps curb this problem but it also gives you a set of skills that you will need in your 30s. You can do this on your own or you can join organizations like Rotary!

  1. Move Out From Home

I admire people who move out when they turn 18. That is a different level of bravery most people struggle with even in their 20’s. Living alone builds character.  If you are looking for more independence then moving out of home will help you become more independent and be able to make decisions on your own.

  1. Live Abroad

This sounds scary, reckless and all those things dream killers say. However, it has been done. Take a sabbatical from work, school and relationships and move to a different country for a year or so.

  1. Add Colour To Your Clothes

Changing your wardrobe is something everybody should do before turning 30. This is a period when you’re transitioning from a young adult to a full-blown adult. Therefore, your clothes need to be a little more sophisticated. that doesn’t mean they have to be boring. Adding more colour to your clothes will instantly elevate your mood.

Put your entrepreneurial skills to use by starting a business or running a website. This will help you find your niche as well as turn your passion into a paycheck. Additionally, doing business has become easier due to the availability of resources. So, if you have a good idea, put it to work.
