Follow Your Passion Follow Your Dreams

A few years ago, after I graduated from college, I found myself wedged in a tight spot. I didn’t know whether to continue with higher education or get a job and start a career.  Up until this point, sports had been the center of my life and here it was, the moment where golden dreams were beginning to be replaced by gray cubicles and black desk chairs.
