“Your life now comes secondary if you want to be legendary.”
Thompson hopes to encourage people through his story and journey that they too can make a significant impact and hold important roles no matter their age, skin color, or circumstance. He wants to inspire people to go off the beaten path and create their own success through entrepreneurship.
If Thompson could say one thing to young people it would be, “Your goals are your goals, and no-one else’s. Believe in your goals and the things that you do because what makes sense to you doesn’t have to make sense to anyone else.”
