Wrap it up!(pt. 1) My plan to becoming a success is a lot about getting myself out there, and not being afraid of failure. I am full of ideas, and I am certain one of them will be good enough to catch on and support a family
Wrap it up! (pt.2) That being said, my measurement of success isn’t really based on a job, or on numbers. I just want to know I did the best I could at the job I did, and more importantly, make sure I did the best I could in all the other aspects in life. This kind of job should be a passion, and in my opinion if you’re earning money while doing something you’re passionate about, you’re a success.
