Keeping up in any business can be difficult, its a game of patience and persistence, and not everyone can do this, for this episode of the brandcast Donald Meador comes on to talk about his experiences on job sites and what he’s taken from them, a big one being motivation, and hope, basically, if you don’t believe in what you're doing or pursuing, you’re never going to succeed at it, which is why you have to go through all the hard times and the ups and downs. Donald Meador has been through all sorts of downs but hopefully hearing about them will show that you can succeed as he has with enough persistence.
