In this episode of You University, I interview Kern Carter. Before anything else, Kern Carter is an author. His debut novella "Thoughts of a Fractured Soul" follows a Millennial dreamer from adolescence through adulthood as his ambitions slowly become fractured by the responsibility he feels to his family, his environment as his own misguided decisions force him down a path of accepting mediocrity.

Kern has a way with words, so it should come as no surprise that Kern is also a speaker blogger and content creator covering topics including identity and millenials. It’s been one of my goals to write a book, and Kern and I discussed the road to writing. If you’re an author in the making, stay tuned.
