Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Parents:

    You can't make money in corporate America. If you want to make money you have to be in sales.

  • How I responded:

    At the end of the day, you're the one working the job. If you don't love it, don't do it. It matters how YOU want to spend your time. Not how everyone else wants you to spend your time.

  • It's always about the money at some point. Choose to not let it be about that. If you love what you do, the money will come later.
