"Keep every promise made. To make the sale, some salespeople will promise everything. And then they don't do what they promised. You'll never get a referral that way. Under-promise so you can over-deliver. That's how you 'wow' them and keep them happy."

My dad had a talk with me as I was approaching the college years and told me simply, "Do what you love. Pick one small thing you love and do it better than anyone on earth and money will follow you." It sounded good but it didn't sink in until one of my first real jobs after college. Again I was talking to my dad about how one job I had was awful and basically was bitching about every aspect of the job. He said, " have a few options.
1. Quit.
​2. Change or fix all the problems.
3. Do nothing and just bear it

Bitching about it isn't an option though." He was right.

It took me awhile to grasp the concept of "do what you love" mainly because society, in general, doesn't follow that rule. Many people pick a field of study or career somewhat randomly or without ever having done it before thinking they will like it. I changed majors mid college when I started understanding the "do what you love" thing. I was in engineering and doing ok grade-wise but every day I thought to myself, "Is this what you want to do everyday of your life?" The answer was "no". My true work passion was marketing. Working my way through college one of my jobs was at Dillard's working in the men's department. I started learning about what marketing was by working there.

​ I started reading and studying marketing and sales every chance I could. I had a collection of cassette tapes that would stagger your mind. I listened to them every chance I could. People likeTom Hopkins, Zig  Ziglar , Brian Tracy, Tony Robbins, Wayne Dyer, Napoleon Hill,Dale Carneige, Og Mandino,Deepak Chopra were very influential in shaping my mindset. Tom Hopkins ( his bio ) was and still is at the top of the heap. I learned a great deal about selling ( and how not to sell ) from Mr. Hopkins. 

Do what you love
