Remember turning 21? Seems like such a long time ago. Many of us at that age are still not sure what we are gonna do with our life.  At that age, I started working at a corrugated box factory with a dream of working in radio and buying a house someday.

After 4 years I had enough, I quit and went back to school for communications. I was not sure it would pay off but after 2 years I got my first full-time job doing an afternoon show in Joliet, Il about an hour south of Chicago. One thing I learned was always followed your dream no matter what the odds or someone tells you.
