By Steve Curtis
I am not the most handsome, tallest, richest or smartest guy around. I do not recall being the first one picked for any job or sports team. I have never been that flashy person someone picks out of a crowd to put on the cover of a magazine. However, I have become quite successful with what I do. I have made it in my own way, and you can too. My main strategy for success is to stick with an area of interest over time. It is amazing what one can do with this simplistic idea. Go for it!
