Episode Notes

Tom Holland is a 20something who just isn't willing to settle for a mediocre life. After listening to people at work complain about their commonly similar pain points, he started noticing a trend here in NYC that many individuals probably experience! Why do people come into work and complain about feeling shitty in the morning after a wild night out with no sleep or emphasis on a healthier diet? It makes no sense.

As a fellow 20something who didn't have a chosen career path all my life, I find this conversation to be completely relative to so many youngsters in today's day and age who feel so stumped on what their journey will look like and where they're going. We forget to recognize that not knowing is the most fun part of the whole experience!
