Author Bio

JOSH BURNETTE is a husband, dad, business owner, and author who currently resides in Little Rock, Arkansas. Originally from Virginia Beach, Virginia, he started working for Chick-fil-A as a team member when he was barely old enough to see over the counter. He received his bachelor’s degree in business management from James Madison University in 2009 (Go Dukes!). Throughout college, he served as a Young Life leader for a local high school, and his passion for mentoring young people began. After graduating, he went to work fulltime for a Young Life camp in Buena Vista, Colorado. He decided to come back to Chick-fil-A to combine his loves for business and working with young people. He served as the owner/operator of a mall restaurant for two years and currently leads a free-standing restaurant employing over one hundred people in Little Rock. Josh is a certified speaker with SCORRE workshops and recently enjoyed the opportunity to be the keynote speaker for Verizon Wireless. In his free time, he enjoys reading, traveling, volunteering on several boards in the community, and snowboarding. Josh is married and has two children.

PETE HARDESTY currently serves as the Young Life college divisional coordinator in the Eastern Division. He moved to the Washington, D.C. area from the friendly city of Harrisonburg, Virginia. Pete grew up in Baltimore, Maryland, and graduated from the University of Virginia where he was pre-med with the emphasis on "pre." He then joined the staff of Young Life in Virginia Beach, where he served for seven years before moving to Harrisonburg in 2004. After being the area director for Young Life in Harrisonburg for eight years, Pete transitioned to start Young Life College at James Madison University in 2012. Pete loves being around college students even though they make him feel old. He crammed his three years of grad school into seventeen and finally received his Master of Divinity from Reformed Theological Seminary in 2014. A passion for the Middle East has inspired Pete to lead Holy Land trips for the last ten years, with a focus on serving Palestinian kids in the West Bank. He is a frequent international keynote speaker with experience in such places as Asia, Africa, the Middle East, the Caribbean, and places all over the US, speaking to groups as big as four thousand. He is a speaker coach with SCORRE workshops and loves helping people become excellent communicators. Pete has been working with young people for twenty-five years. They are still his favorite. He loves people and creating environments where they can thrive and achieve their potential. His two nieces are the apple of his eye.

Editorial Reviews

Adulting 101 is a must-read book for anyone, whether you are just entering the "real world" or have been in it for decades. The timeless principles shared by Josh and Pete will have you referencing the book for years to come.

I love meeting young leaders who are eager to change the world. In their new book, Adulting 101, Josh Burnette and Pete Hardesty provide a much needed, practical guide for the next generation of world changers. Their inside out approach to personal change will inspire readers to cultivate a growth mindset essential for success in life.
- Dan T. Cathy, Chairman and CEO, Chick-fil-A, Inc.

It seems that some of the practical things an aspiring adult needs to know, like how to create a personal budget, interview for a job, or even take out a loan to buy a car are left to the "learn as you go" educational model. Josh Burnette and Pete Hardesty are out to change that with this fantastic and insightful new book, Adulting 101. It is a great book and a useful resource for anyone trying to figure out some of the basics of being on their own.
- Governor Mike Huckabee, best-selling author and political commentator

Adulting 101 should top the reading list for any graduate, parent, college student, or anyone working with adolescents.

- Mark Cathy, Chick-fil-A Inc., Operator Support and Cathy family member

Where was this when I started "adulting"? Pete and Josh lay out a road map for navigating life. Adulting 101 should be required reading for every twenty-something, but it may be just as valuable for seasoned adults who need a refresher on some of life’s important truths. It’s like a life manual in your pocket.
- Dave Alpern, President, Joe Gibbs Racing

Pete and Josh really know the relevant issues for college graduates, and they tackle each of these with wisdom clearly borne from years of experience. I’m going to recommend this book to my students and to my own children.

Adulting 101 is a great resource for young people who are getting started in the real world. This book will help you launch into adulthood successfully, and it is relevant for every stage of life because it is principle-based. I believe Adulting 101 will be and should be read repeatedly, even by those in their "later" years.
- Ron Blue, author and Ronald Blue & Co. founder

As a leader in the US Army for the past twenty years, I have dedicated my life to transforming teenagers into the future leaders of our country. Adulting 101 contains very practical advice and vignettes to help our teenagers make a successful transition from our homes and into the world. I plan to use what I learned from Adulting 101 with my two teenagers.
- Col. Eric Lopez, US Army Ranger

Whatever you are currently experiencing in the crazy transitions of life, there is something in this book for you. This book has been a tremendous help transitioning to life on my own. You are not alone, and you can thrive. #LiveYourBestLife with #Adulting101.
- Jess Demayo, recent college graduate
