Repository: Rowan University. History Department
Collection: We All Got History Oral History
Description: One of the things I learned during this interview is that a person is influenced by their life's experiences more than I ever imagined. Mr. Carter has shown me that through hard work and determination a person can not only succeed but thrive by just following life's ever changing patterns. Mr. Carter has dealt with his share of blockades but has always turned up on the right course through his great work ethic and determination. I can only hope to find a career that pleases me the way he is pleased by his. Ultimately, this is the determining factor on whether or not a person has had a successful career. We tend to measure things by dollars and cents, often overlooking happiness. Maybe happiness should be our ultimate career goal and financial success should take a back seat.
