I mashed up my Interests to direct me down my own road. Take the Roadmap quiz for yourself!
Being Physically Acive
Environment & Nature
What I achieved by doing my roadtrip was learning that not everyone had a straightforward path to where they got to now. I learned that if you want something don’t listen to all the negativity in your life. Follow your heart and your dreams. This is my life. I make my own choices, and my own path is no one else's. No one can make my own path for me. One of the quotes I live by is written by Eleanor Roosevelt, "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."
Lamont Bellamy owns his own business, Diamond Executive Limousine Service, owns a catering business, and has two other business.
What type of route did this leader take?
"It was straightforward."
"It took a while to figure out."
"I tried everything."
Leader's Work Life
An average day for Lamont Bellamy is checking his emails the limousine business , prepares schedules for his drivers, and checks his emails for his other businesses.
That he's not tall enough for this job, that he doesn't look the way the others did, that is some road blocks that discouraged him from one of the things he really wanted to do.
Advice from my Leader
To start planning and to move in the direction you want even though it's going to change as you move through life.
The most important thing I learned from the "cold calls" was that when you have you're script and you read over it, the "cold-calls" was easier because you weren't struggling to say what you want.
Before and After
Before my interview I thought I knew exactly what I want to do but I realized that there are so many opportunities out there for me to explore and that I have a long time to figure out what I want to do with my life.
