I always struggled on what I wanted to pursue with my life. It’s a big question for any college kid to answer. The truth non of them know, not one. Because you don’t know what you wanna spend the rest of your life doing until, you’re in the toughest aspect of any job. A few examples for me is I went to Alabama as a political science major. Then Transferred to a local community college/Rowan for a sociology degree. Work wise, I worked 50 hour weeks paying back debt at Chick-Fil-A then worked for PNC Bank as a bank teller. It was at PNC bank where my life started to switch. They were generally overpaying me to do simple work and it was all perfect, until in January my entire family got COVID 19 which made me leave work to take care of them. Following that I was having issues with a stomach ulcer, going to the hospital every 2 weeks for constant vomiting, and that’s when I was fired from PNC bank for missing too much work. And that brought me ALL THE WAY back to square 1 of what the hell am I doing? That was when my brother reached out to me telling me he was started to pick up some serious business for his new company LegalEase Marketing and that’s got some work for me. I was hesitant at first because if you know me and my brother, both of our friends always say, “You guys are like the same person.” And I guess that’s what always pushed me away from doing something that I was potentially really really good at, and really, really enjoyed.  And within a month of managing my first client’s social media and graphics, his new sessions are at 78%, increase of 16%, his bounce rate dropped 75% to 11% TOTAL, and pages per session increased 41% to 3 pages per session. All after just one month. And that was the moment I was like, this is what I’m meant to do.
