I lucked out in finding a wonderful group of people to share a change of career with. Now it seems more like a family and what seemed like an eternity is gone by so fast. The opportunity is there for those who are willing to put in the work. it might be fast paced, but you are not alone. The instructors and support staff are there to help, Like everything else in life you reap what you sow.
