In line with the messages in The Seven Secrets of Extremely Successful Mothers, A Flying Start reveals fundamental concepts in the areas of lifestyle, education, personal development, employee and entrepreneurship, financial education, relationships, and foresight that lead the reader to accept the lifestyle of a young leader.
In chapter one, Cederick invites the young reader into the concepts shared in The Seven Secrets. He presents the case for correcting course and accepting The Dream Team Concept as an either or choice, with an emphasis on the benefits for acceptance. Cederick provides relevant examples of young men worked with their parents and achieved success. Chapter one offers the young reader a seven step process for creating an interdependent relationship with their mother.
In chapter two, Cederick builds on the vision of chapter one by focusing on the lifestyle choices of young men who decide to live above average. Chapter two hypothesizes depression is a result of failing to live out one’s full potential. The reader is encouraged to look within himself to find his passion and purpose.
Meant to be exaggeratedly controversial, chapter three opens by asking the question, “Why should you care for advance education if millionaires and billionaires did not?” The author walks a delicate tightrope here explaining that while school may be frustrating and outdated, the principle of education is far more encompassing than traditional school. After providing the reader several tips for excelling in both high school and college, Cederick opens the reader up to the world of self-education. The chapter concludes with dozens of online self-education resources in key areas such as finance, law, health, and computers.
Chapter four provides value insight into the personal journey we all undertake as we mature into adulthood. The author breaks this journey down into nine checkpoints and provides the reader with a PDF flowchart to utilize as a daily reminder that frustration and anxiety are normal checkpoints in the journey towards manhood.
Building on the advice of the late author Roger Caras, chapter five encourages the reader to look outside of the standard assembly line of high school, college, and career towards using his passion and purpose to generate income. Entrepreneurship is not for everyone. For this reason, Cederick provides readers with valuable career advice. Chapter five focuses on topics such as using modern career landing techniques to excelling in the work place, offering guidance for every personality.
Money plays a dramatic role in the life of every person operating in this new economy. Chapter six I intended to reframe the concept of money so that the reader gains a new level of respect for its ability to influence their lifestyle. The author helps the reader understand how important the family’s financial IQ is to achieving their team’s goals.
Women play an enormous role in men’s life. Chapter seven shines a light on that fact by explaining women’s rights issues, relationships, sex, and more. On top of this, the reader will gain an appreciation for the term “gentleman” and what it means in this generation.
Chapter eight serves as the conclusion to A Flying Start. Wrapping up the entire journey, Cederick takes the reader by the hand and shows them a view of the world and the country from 30,000 feet. Intended to inspire the readers to develop a community consciousness, chapter eight reveals global and national issues such as human trafficking and slavery, education reform, and the infrastructure crises in America. This introduction to worldwide issues can cause dramatic life change in young people, and usually offers them some direction to travel.
