It’s amazing to consider how a single instance of misfortune can evolve into years of struggle while a few seconds of luck may ultimately unravel in success. Three years ago, I decided to open an old email account that I hadn’t checked in years. I saw a message from a London-based band that wanted to collaborate on a track. This led to me studying abroad in London so I could perform with them which lead to me meeting a roommate there named Ryan who became one of my best friends. Two years later, he introduced me to Moe Abdou who I’m now working for at 33voices – and I’ve never been happier. While it’s safe to suggest hard work pays off, I know that luck is vital. Luckily, luck is manageable – learn how from Wall Street maven, Michael J. Mauboussin.
