Day 31 of #31DaysofSMA: How to Become Successful and Independent
Here is our final 31 days story of 2022! Thanks to all of our fantastic contributors this year.
Drew Richard shares his experiences with working and living independently and provides tips for others in the community. He attributes his determination and skills to his parents, who always believed in him.
Here’s an excerpt, “Lastly, prepare to face many hurdles. Building a care team is not something that can magically happen overnight, and it is inevitable that you will end up hiring people who don’t work out. Be patient with this process and act with compassion, empathy, and optimism, even in the most difficult times, and you will surely overcome all the obstacles in front of you.”
Do you have any takeaways from Drew’s story? Thanks for reading!
