I recently got laid off from my consulting firm, however, after deep contemplation, I still feel I loved my job and the opportunities it entailed - however the company/role was a bad fit and I didn’t find the right mentors.

When I landed at the Newark airport and proceeded to Boston in 2005 I had just landed in this country with $ 325 in my pocket and was on a student visa. I racked up $ 100,000 in student loans over the next few years. Paid it all off by 2010 and today our net worth is $ 2.2 million projected to close at $ 6 million by the time I retire. Work hard. Stay humble. You can do anything in this country with capitalism and free enterprise.
