Loving these stories so far!
I think anyone struggling to figure out where they want to go in life should listen to all these stories...you learn that there isn't a set recipe for success and everyone has their own unique paths.
It's so fascinating to learn about how people got to where they are and the revelations and decisions they had to make to get them there. In a time when people bash the so-called " lazy millenial," it's refreshing to hear truly intelligent, driven and inspiring people.
