Ruben Harris, CEO of Career Karma, learned to trust his struggle and that he shouldn’t ever feel bad as long as he always gives his best. This approach helped him to break into the tech space and raise over $2M for Career Karma, where career transitioners are matched to job training programs to get tech jobs in 3 to 12 months. He recommends understanding your purpose then collecting the skills you need to achieve that purpose and spending each day going after it like nobody’s business.
