When I was 24 I felt like I had failed... I graduated from University at 23 with two Degrees, one in Marketing and one in Business Management. I had made my mom proud but I never truly wanted to live a "corporate 9-5 life".
I was then given time by my parents to "look for a job". I actually spent most of this time trying to create some form of making money online(and playing video games). I then ran into an old friend at the gym who had a startup already that seemed to be heading in the right direction with sponsors etc and they needed a "social media" guy. Got an interview with the team and boom I was the new "Media Director" for a Mud Run Event startup company named Benjamin Dash.
