A year on the road is a funny thing. From couch to couch, chapter to chapter, one issue after another, a normal man would lose his mind doing what we do. However, the benefits far outweigh the setbacks, and I’ve been fortunate enough not only to make many great connections during my first year travelling for Sigma Pi, but I’ve also managed to learn a few things along the way. The following are some important lessons I’ve taken away over the past 9 months, and while they may not always be pretty, they are more relevant than I think any of us are willing to admit. Pay attention, you might learn something too.
