self-employed landscape worker - waiter - college - dishwasher - banker/operations - banker/trader - - college again - private energy company cio (cfo) - start-up hedge fund mgr/entrepreneur - tech company ceo/entrepreneur - social media company ceo/entrepreneur/ & Worker's advocate!
takeaway #1 - John Lennon was right "Life is what happens to you while you are making other plans".. who could predict that path? takeaway #2 - education is the most awesome force for life-transformation. Always make the investment in your own training/learning/education (this does NOT have to mean a formal college degree! - lots of ways to keep growing in training& education that don't include that path!!) takeaway #3 - advocating for todays workers is the most fun and rewarding yet! Hang in there - if you are making your way through your own journey... the best may just be yet to come (even when you can't quite see through to it quite yet).
So, what's your path?
