The purpose of this project is to interview people who have been successful in a career that interest me. I want to find out as much information about their journey to success so that I will not only be inspired, but also have a "roadmap" to guide me to becoming as successful as the people I interview.




Great job on your Roadtrip Project! You've been working hard, and for that we just have one thing to say...You're awesome. Keep it up!
