It’s been a long journey throughout my career, and I’ve learned a lot from my peers and everything I’ve experienced. I remember all of the tips and advice that have carried me until now, and I’m looking forward to passing that onto a future generation. I wouldn’t be here without that guidance, and if I can provide someone with the tools or knowledge to expedite their success, then it’s an even greater reward for me.
