What advice would you give to other business Roadrunners?
Being young is the time to really dive into something you’re passionate about and learn as much as you can. Relentlessly cut out the things that take time away from learning about the things you want to master, whether it’s for a career or just a hobby. Throwing yourself into something you’re passionate about is one of the most admirable traits a person can have, and you will command respect for it from both your peers and superiors.
