Dealing with Disappointment

It has been two years now (ish) since I finished up my graduate program at Liberty University. Having secured a Master’s Degree in Executive Leadership, I was convinced that I would be returning to Illinois like a prodigal child returning home. Prospective employers would be lined up at the Illinois / Indiana border, waving offers of employment in my direction.

Every night, when you go to bed, you think to yourself, “It has to be better tomorrow.” Hey, you are not alone, my friend. Continue reading “Cool Your Jets”
