Another monday, another #mccvllixnmondays
feature. this will be our last story for 3 weeks, i'll be traveling for a bit after this weekend taking a long overdue trip.
today's feature comes from a long time supporter and the tallest person i know @featuringbigjay
1. what do you do? i am a professional athlete. basketball player. i travel all around the world playing basketball in foreign countries.
2. why do you do what you do? i do what i do because i love it. at the end of the day i want to have a job that i love. if you want that, you have to work extremely hard at whatever passion you have to be able to make that your job. regular jobs aren't going anywhere. school isn't going anywhere. you can always go back and get a 9-5, or enroll in school... take an online course. so why not follow your dreams? what do you lose taking a risk? ok... you might fail, but if you're afraid to fail you won't ever accomplish anything.
3. what advice do you have for people in your shoes? advice for people struggling in my field.... don't give up. stick with it. it's going to get worse before it gets better. my career has had so many lows. very few highs, but it always comes around. it sucks in the beginning. just keep putting in the work and let the love of the game drive you to do bigger and better things. don't give up and just keep working.
