So what can you learn from this information?
That you are not defined where you start your journey, but more so where you finish it. You must be open to what will give some security along the way to success. Principals and lessons can be learned no matter what job you have.
By starting in sales you can develop the skills to be able to sell your grand vision when the times comes for your own venture. You'll have to sell to investors, the market, and future employees. An idea without a driver to deliver the picture to the masses imaginations will never materialize.
By learning engineering, and software development you'll have a background on what components are necessary to build an effective infrastructure where technologies are used. You'll understand the perspective of design which will put more emphasis on the customer's experience. Without the builder, and one who can stay ahead of the technological curve a business can't be sustained.
Finally, if you're pursuing a career in the performing arts, or athletics you must be patient. All it takes is one breakthrough moment to completely change your trajectory.
Embrace the journey, and take advantage of all opportunities!
