Be The One Who Shows Up

When I was 16, I wanted to work at this restaurant called Java Grill. It was a burrito joint that did burgers, smoothies, and coffee drinks.

Which do yours do for you?   Mine were holding me back… I remember it like it was yesterday. But it was over 12 years ago now. It was about 9 p.m. on a Friday, and I was hungry (so hungry).
