Fantastic piece Ryan and thank you for sharing. I love the quote from James Altucher and others who talk about the company you keep. Ill add that that your support network (family/friends/etc) can be equally important to keep you grounded, but seeking your “scene” is critical to find people who share your intellectual passions. Chances are that your parents, siblings or college roommates don’t work in the same industry or have a vastly perspective. Look forward to reading the next piece!
