“The toughest decision of my life was whether or not to break from my comfort zone and move to a new city. I was sick of the status quo and felt uninspired by the same old environment I had seen all of my life. I felt like I was stagnating and not striving to pursue my passions.

“This is my own haircut and this is my own beard trim. I did it all with scissors. I studied that stuff all my life.

His wishes were that I got a job, which I did. His wishes... Read More
