Lessons from a Master: Jay-Z's Advice to Dreamers

None of this advice is necessarily new but that’s because good, old-fashioned hard work, goal-setting, honesty and believing is a tried and true formula for success. The best part of Jay-Z’s Master Class was when he shared memories of being a young boy sitting at the kitchen table, writing rhymes and dreaming. How many of us can relate to that experience?

Make a decision never to quit and you can count on accomplishing them.
