Would love people from different professions to help students. We interview professionals about their careers for our series:

"Ask The Professional" (www.facebook.com/careerok) 

This link is a sample of what it is like.
First Mover Jimmy Wang tells his story of how he got onto Y-combinator. It's a pretty funny anecdotal story that highlights what being a startup Entrepreneur is like sometimes.

When do you give up?

Ken
🎖️
I've always found this difficult. Being stubborn, obstinate and having a big heart for the hustle, I am inclined to blindly Persist & Pivot rather than consider stopping. 

tl;dr
For those that have had to make the difficult choice. How did you know you had to give up?
