Road Trip Reflections

I left my digital marketing job at Nike in 2015 to take a solo road trip around the country, funded by driving for Lyft in each of the cities I traveled through.

I learned a lot about myself in that year, and even more by applying those lessons in the year and a half after returning to the 9-5.

A few key takeaways:

- Even if you win the rat race, you're still a rat

- Find what you're good at and hustle for it

- Listen more

- Work is important but so is family
