Recently, I had the pleasure of being invited to speak at Trinity Catholic Academy's second annual Career Day. I, along with dozens of local business leaders visited Trinity Catholic Academy in Brockton, MA to chat with students in 4th through 8th grades about our experiences in life, work and the importance of education.

I was lucky enough to speak with a class of very well-behaved fourth graders and I wanted to share with you one of the big gems that I left with the students. I mentioned to them that if I had to sum up my entire life in three words it would be "Always Be Curious."  

I was always curious as a kid and continue to be as an adult. Curiosity has allowed me to learn how to design websites, to explore photography, drums, piano, guitar, soccer, basketball, martial arts, cooking, travel, real estate, drawing, reading, writing, hiking, biking, etc. Granted, many of these I'm no longer into but, you won't know if you'll enjoy something until you try it. You keep trying new things until you find the very thing that motivates you, then continue doing that. 

We have more access to information now than at any point in the history of human civilization! There is no excuse to explore your interests and I encourage everyone to pick up a book, watch a video, or simply do a Google search and explore! You may surprise yourself.
