Earning potential, judged directly on effort put in rather than office politics, job security, I'm outgoing and not afraid of talking to people so why not use those skills.Β

Found that many aspects of it came naturally, for me. It challenges me. Enjoy the travel.Β 

And got 4 kids to put through high school and college...3 girls, so 3 potential weddings. Maybe I’ll retire when I’m 80.Β

Landed a sales job cuz they were the only roles I could interview for after not graduating. Stuck on for a few things:
1. You get back what you put in
2. Freedom to do shit your way as long as it works
3. Definitely, the money
4. It doesn’t get monotonous, you’re talking to so many kinds of people. For me, it’s almost like I’m travelling every day except I’m not. But I’m still meeting folks from all over the world. It’s cray cray
