What I've noticed is that a lot of people just wait for opportunities to happen; they expect that the world will give them what they want. This is incredibly untrue. The world doesn't owe you anything.
If you met me at the age of 14 you would have voted me the least likely person to become a CEO of a multi-million dollar company. I have to be honest and say it is those jobs, those experiences and that sweat that led me to this path and this success.
