I never imagined that my journey into the business world would completely change the way I think and move now. As I reflected on my 54th birthday last month, I realized that my career goals have been totally redefined to include not only myself and my family, but also to make an impact on the world around me in whatever way I can. I can look back and remember the unfortunate circumstances that led me to seek a legitimate hustle to provide for my family and how challenging it was to try and build a profitable business from scratch. It felt like swimming across a vast lake in total darkness – cold, lonely, and unpredictable. But those failures have purpose now; every mistake I make which helps others avoid similar pitfalls becomes a success story.
