Brian’s Advice –

Life is a marathon not a sprint. Don’t worry about what’s going on in your current business or class. These are all building blocks to what you will ultimately achieve in life. Don’t look at the other person in your class that you wish you could be doing. You have a whole lifetime to achieve your dreams. Learn as much as you can and create relationships with people you think you can learn from.
