Does this sound familiar? You have spent months trying to land an internship that was more than emptying garbage cans and fetching coffee, but came up short. You’ve networked every possible opportunity, yet leads produced nothing promising. And you applied for every job opening on the planet, but didn’t even land an interview. Now, you find yourself with a diploma, a lot of student loan debt, living at home (once again) with mom or dad. What’s next? Time for a road trip!
A writer at The Washington Post, wanted to test peoples perception. He asked a world renowned violinist to performincognitoin a D.C. busy train station one morning as thousands of commuters rushed by.
Only a few actually stopped to listen, but no one recognized him or his exceptional talent and his $3.5 million Stradivarius. At the end of his 45 minute free concert, he made only $32. The talented violinist was Joshua Bell, who had played to a sold-out concert just two days before at $100 per seat!
