Jackson and I discuss: our different career paths after college (leaving the fields we were trained in), how to develop grit (and it’s importance), our alternative energy solutions as well as our experiences working in alternative energy research, how Jackson developed and maintained a healthy sleep routine while balancing a part time job, marching band, and one of the most demanding majors in college, how to approach making friends and establishing yourself socially in a new city, and how to follow through and finish difficult or discouraging goals.
