We all teach kids that they’re special, and they ARE special in different ways. But I want to turn that expression around and say that I’m not special. I was able to become a Disney artist, but as a person I’m not special. I’m not trying to give false modesty, what I mean is I am an average person just like anyone else.
I’m a short Japanese American guy, my family was middle class, I grew up in a small town. I’m a quiet person, I’m sometimes awkward talking to people. I got good grades, but I was never good at sports. I wasn’t popular in high school. I graduated from UC Berkeley, but I lived in Berkeley in an apartment til I was 36, I didn’t get married til I was 41, I was definitely a late bloomer.
What’s my point? I truly believe that if I can get my dream job, then it’s possible for anyone to get their dream job. In this blog, I’m going to share how I did it, so you can get an idea what it takes to get your dream job, whatever it is.
