There is no secret to success except hard work and getting something indefinable which we call "the breaks." ~Countee Cullen (1903–1946). Wanting to be successful isn’t easy, one must be determined to work hard and thrive for success. Success comes in many varieties and one way people thrive for success is by moving on in life after studying for years and working a career they have chosen themselves. Knowing what someone wants to do in life gives them the extra motivation they may need to reach their goal of a career.

It is expected to have a high school diploma or higher if interested in either fields. If they decide to study after high school a few common classes that are advertised for both fields are taking sales & marketing, customer & personal services, and business management.

But they both have the idea of them needing to have organization and social skills. Having a set idea of what one wants to be after high school is a step towards success. Knowing the right information about the careers one is interested in helps set a good idea if they wish to pursue more education for the specific career or not. Don't aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally. ~David
