All of us are where we are today partly because of our own efforts and partly because of the advice, guidance, influence and inspiration provided by others. At Voyage we have the good fortune of connecting with so many of the city’s hidden gems – from entrepreneurs and creatives to athletes, researchers and more. We asked them a simple, but important question: what is the best advice, personal or professional, that you’ve ever received?

Best advice I’ve ever received is, to never give up. No matter what people say, you need to keep pushing forward, and do what you love. Also, no matter how difficult things in life can get, keep your faith in God, because miracles do happen and he is always there for you.

Treat life like a video game. There’s many categories in life: Health, Relationships, Finances, Business / Career, etc… Make it your mission to always be leveling up one of these areas. You won’t always be able to improve every area of your life but if you can constantly be improving some aspect you will be amazed at where you can be in 10 years. You’re either growing, or you’re dying.
Frances Wang – News Anchor & Reporter
It’s nice to be important but it’s more important to be nice. This is one of my favorite quotes and I keep it in my social media bios as a reminder to me but also people who come across my page. I think we all want to feel valued, successful, loved, and important. But I think in our personal and professional lives it’s important to remember to make OTHERS feel that way too.
