A message to 2015 graduates.

“Get a job. Work for a corporation. Have benefits. Save money. Don’t waste your college education away. You will embarrass your family. Go to grad school so you can get a better job. Wait what… You want to start your own business? You can’t do it. You won’t make it. You don’t have what it takes. You will fail. This is a dumb idea. No one will ever want that product. No one would ever use your service. Are you serious? I can’t believe you are actually serious. You will never amount to anything.”

Life is too short to spend tucked away in a meaningless job. This world is full of people that ALWAYS feel sorry for themselves. They would prefer to live a life of misery and try to make everyone miserable in the process. They will bring you down every chance they can, because they are unwilling to pick themselves off the ground. And face it… it is just a hell of a lot easier for them to pull you down with them.

I am here to tell you that you can you can do what you love EVERY SINGLE DAY. I am blessed and excited to wake up every day and build a dream side by side with people I LOVE. It is the greatest feeling in the world and I feel sorry that SO MANY people are WASTING their life away not doing what they love.

Class of 2015… If you want to change the world, DO IT. If you want to start a business, DO IT. If you want to work in your family business, DO IT. If you want to work in a corporate office, DO IT… BUT ONLY DO IT IF IT MAKES YOU HAPPY. Follow your passions, find meaning in life and surround yourself with those that are doing the same.

Congrats Class of 2015!

Would you do me the honor and share this with the graduate in your life?
