Nick's Final Push will make you realize that you can do anything that you have a passion for, so long as you put your mind to it. Quotes:

“Sometimes ignorance is bliss when you’re learning something new.”

“I was indirectly promoting my services just by practicing my craft around the city and sharing the photos I took.”

“You can do it. You may be surprised with what you can do if you have a passion for something and you work hard at it and aren’t afraid to take that risk.”
