We’ve all been there. We’ve all asked questions ourselves when we do something “out of character”.

We ask ourselves, “Why did I do that….why did I react like that?”

However, when we begin to ask ourselves these questions on an almost daily basis, react to constructive criticism from loved ones poorly, or just constantly wonder why we aren’t getting life “right”, it’s only appropriate to pause and assess the situation.

Why? Because after asking yourself x amount of times, it’s not a once in a blue thing…

In this day and age we are pushed to learn new, applicable skills almost on a weekly basis. Which makes sense because new information is released out into the world constantly and at the speed of lightening.

Why is it that recently graduated kids have an incredibly difficult time not only finding work in their desired field, but being paid well? Heck, even remotely well?

I live in New York City. Home to some of the wealthiest individuals, companies, and industries. It probably doesn’t come as a surprise to you that it’s also the second most expensive city in the United States…number seven in the world.

So, why is it that some of my friends who are working in fields that they would consider to be their calling barely making $60,000 a year? …

Let’s start with a brief history.

Some people buy a drink to commemorate their 21st birthday.

I bought my first stock.

Did I know what I was getting myself into? Absolutely not.
