A trust fund baby messed up and doesn't have any money and/or access to family that took care of them. So now they are working at an average 20something wage. What common lifeskills do they need to learn to take care of themselves?

This person was brought up with everything taken care of for them. All they learned to do was be a passable student at an exclusive school. So I am thinking things like - learn to change a tire, how to wash dishes, laundry, ... etc. They need to learn how to take care of themselves now. I would like to give a friend some resources that would help them to make help with self-reliance. Things just keep coming up that boggle me, and I would like to preempt situations that are going to come up in the future.
