I'm 23 at with all of my colleagues on their hustle, my parents making career suggestions, and opportunity toasting martinis at dinner, it can be difficult to have a clear idea of what I personally consider "success".
Growing up in MS, most of society depicts a successful life resembling this:
Graduate from highschool-attend college-get a job-get married-have children-retire-live out your golden years traveling. [straight face]
I knew at 11 that, that wasn't for me. Sure those elements are integral to living a great life, but I have to paint a different picture for my life. I've been meeting with different entertainers and behind-the-scenes execs in the entertainment industry, working to define my own idea of success.
Hanging out amongst the dreamers only makes you sleepy. You have to wake up and work.
