Marketing Manager in New York:
"Never stop learning..."
You got your degree. Awesome. Now, keep going. What do you (think) you want to do? Ok cool - take a related online course or in person certificate program. Project management is often a great place to start. Don't have the money? Defer your loan payments and budget (Mint App). Don't waste money eating out and drinking. Meal prep. Have a cheat day where you do eat out (cough Saturday obvi cough). Enjoy the now and don't worry so much about tomorrow. Real change will happen in 2-5 year pockets of life. Stay the course and you'll see real change.
