I wish I was a good of a writer as Sam Kyle. Short, to the point, opinionated, driven. The link goes to his there most recent article. The article puts into words the sentimental and mindset I have had for years. A ‘I work for myself’; my employment either improves me or I am out’. Not in the selfish, I want more money / fame / glory type of gains. Rather the I want to be always improving, learning, growing, trying.
Like I said, I am no where nearly as good of a writer as Sam so click the link, read it in there own words. It is worth the 5 minutes.
