When I was in high school, all I ever wanted to do was be on the radio. My first internship in radio was when I was in the eighth grade. It was a Gospel radio station. I would try to soak up every bit of information I could, just to try to better myself. By the time I got my first 'real job' in radio, I had done three internships. I was determined to hone my craft BEFORE I got on the job. Those were the good ole days...but trust me...they weren't all good.....when I hit a little 'bump' in the road, yes, I got a little down, but my mom would always tell me not to take it personal....take it and learn something from it....then use it as a stepping stone to help me in my career and my everyday life. Now, when I hit a little 'bump' in the road (which seems to be a little more often these days) I hear those words from my mom. She always has GREAT advice. So I'll just pass those words on....when you hit a little bump...take the experience and learn something from it. Every experience, whether good or bad is designed to teach us something. It's your task to find out what lesson you're supposed to be learning from that experience. Trust me, when you stop learning, you stop GROWING. I'm just saying.
