Excellent advice David B. Grinberg and interesting story! I love the emphasis on the 4 — “P’s” , I think they can take anyone a long way if they keep those in mind.
I always wanted to major in journalism but I was working in Healthcare right out of HS and my path diverged. I’m glad I had the experiences I did but I would also say, follow your gut too. My focus in HS was always on reading and writing. I loved writing poetry, I could read for hours, I wrote great essays and I was also a good debater!
You gave out tons of great advice, thanks for sharing and thank YOU for all you do!!
