“Hard work is the key to success, so work diligently on any project you undertake. If you want to be successful, be prepared to give up your leisure time and work past 5om even on weekends. Also have faith in yourself. If you come up with an idea that you believe in, don’t allow other people to discourage you from pursuing it.” Charles Lazarus
