(This is in additiion to my reply to a question about the INN certification course. I can't find it even though I entered my comment just under an hour ago.. sorry to mix this up...)
I met Jack Morse (the gent who brought Walt Disney public, among other things). I was just staring out and was hired to install an elaborate custom home gym in one of his houses. I had what I called "Long Island's First (and only to this day 25 years later) Educational Fitness Store" It had two floors, and lots of multi media displays that I built myself- to educate the lay public (amazing how many doctors know even less about weight training than nutrition!!! It is the same now as it was then!) So Jack and I sat down in his study (He had just hung up his Duck phone), and after he recalled how he too had considered shrinking his brain in liquid nitrogen like Walt, he told me that he seldom hired college graduates to work in any of his several companies. He said he could teach someone but that they either "had it" or not.
Decades later, one of my landlords for one of my commercial properties, when asked what the best and most guaranteed road to success was, told me, "Your own gig".
How right he was, and Jack was. I have since been in the homes and offices of the wealthiest and/or most successful people in Long Island and the pattern is still rock-hard: "Your own gig"…. make it YOU, make it special, make it something that people want, put your heart and soul into it and you will never go wrong. This is not new advice but I just felt that I should remind everyone of it who wants a career in raw food in some capacity. Still, you can go to the INN or the "out' or whatever… but… remember that that is only 1% of the equation. The rest is you.
