General Manager, Restaurant:

"Recognize When You Feel Mismatch Career."
General Manager, Restaurant:
When I was in my late 20s and working at my second job while raising family of five, I realized few months later that it was not the right place for me. But when I was offered a great opportunity to move from Missouri to Connecticut for another opportunity that I was excited about, I decided to stay at my former job because I thought, leaving would break my family. Life is too short, so my advice to young ones today. If a job really is not working out, find something new and change. Sometimes, random experiences make life exciting, and at the sametime will create or lead to new opportunities.
