WHAT IS ONE THING YOU HAD TO OVERCOME TO SUCCEED IN THIS INDUSTRY?
In the years following the market crash in 2007, I learned you have to wake up every morning and tell yourself that you’re going to get back on top. You have to not only be willing to sacrifice your comfort and hold yourself accountable every day, but also be willing to learn from those more successful than you. Most importantly, you can’t be afraid of rejection.
