Success is meant for those born with a drive. It takes a uniquely driven person to succeed in one career and an exceptionally talented person to succeed in two. Most people will find themselves job-hopping until they land in their dream job, but it is the drive that separates talent from the amateurs.

They travel the world and play in front of audiences that number in the thousands. I knew that was where I was meant to be.”
