To be successful at whatever line of work you fall into, there must be a passion for what it is you sell, improve or create. Our jobs can be tough, and there’s a reason it’s often referred to as “the grind.” If you don’t enjoy the work, waking up to a job can be pretty brutal.
Equally as important as what you do is where you do it. Our job is often the place where we spend the majority of our day, week, and sometimes weekend, so it’s important that we align ourselves to an organization of like-minded peers who share our passions. I’m a firm believer in that having pride for your employer ultimately yields better performance, resulting in a consistently growing business.
