I was meeting with an old friend today who is incredibly excited about the next step in his career. I have never seen him so certain about where he wants to be and where he can make a substantial contribution.
You may think: “I bet this guy has had it easy and now he is just cruising into an easy path.”
No disrespect, but you would be completely wrong, Here is a person who has gone through an avalanche of professional challenges from being caught in a employer’s company scandal to completely losing his career during the financial meltdown in 2008 and selling groceries to have money to feed his family.
Today, I saw someone who is taking all of the setbacks and bundling them to a portfolio of skills and experiences that can help many others.
Way to go, friend!
Have a great day,
