Top Takeaways from It’s 100% Hustle
- When searching for a new job, make sure you stay true to yourself and follow your passions. “Don’t sell yourself, be yourself. Find something that you’re passionate about and that eventually opens opportunities.” –Andrew Keifer-McNeill
- You aren’t alone in your transition, but you have to work to get where you want to be. “Show that you are loyal, dedicated, and give 110%…don’t feel like you are entitled to anything. Give nothing less than your total self – no one owes you anything.” –Andrew Keifer-McNeill
- Military service is an accomplishment; applying the same discipline you used to succeed in the military will help you achieve your civilian career goals. “Laser focus on what you want to achieve. You already became a Marine or a soldier or whatever branch you served–that’s already an amazing achievement…You already did one of the hardest things so just take it day-by-day and don’t dwell on the past.” –Andrew Keifer-McNeill
You are what you deserve to be because of the efforts you put into it.” –Dakota Meyer
