The money is great but the experience is more important

Would Not Trade This Experience

What I have learned and accomplished, gives me so much indescribable pride that I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything. Being able to say that I successfully ran a business at just 18 years old is incredible.

I’m Not In This By Myself

Went to the first payroll event and talked with other rookies and realized, we’re all going through the same thing, I’m not in this by myself. Suggests to go to the payroll events and make friends with other operators.
