Check Out Juan Palomino’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Juan Palomino. 

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
San Diego is undoubtedly an elegant location for visitors all around the world coming from all different walks of life to come visit. At the same time, it can be a challenging location to reside, but it’s not an impossible opportunity. 

Ultimately as far as getting by in day-to-day life in San Diego, I have been climbing my own rope, meaning not only knowing but also understanding what’s around you and abiding by the responsibilities that comes with it. This would also include meeting people (and being a people-person), wasting very little time in reaching out to opportunities that would be open for a limited time, being willing to continue to learn new things, etc. 

With that, after being fresh out of high school, I’ve found myself a student job in customer service, years back when the minimum hourly wage pay was $8.00 USD. Then as the years went by, my life experience has shown that if you want to continue being successful in climbing your own rope, you have to constantly promote yourself; meaning when you’re offered bigger opportunities as the years go by, you have very little time to consider because that window can only be open for so long. It would appear that it’s now considered the “old days” that you find yourself a stable line of work and you stick with it for the rest of your working days. It also appears to occur to me that we no longer live in a time where you stick with one skill, but now rather multiple upon multiple of skills. 

Starting from a student job in customer service up until today, I’ve discovered multiple skills such as communication, administrative work, safety & security, travelling, photography, etc. Critical thinking, thinking outside the box, and thinking ahead is a big major plus. 

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
Bluntly put, no it has not. I think many Americans residing in the US today, would unanimously agree that inflation has created perhaps the biggest financial burden we’ve seen in a long time. 

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
What I feel I am most proud of is my working in photography: . 

I took a photography art class in college. To this day, when my free time is open, I’ve applied what I learned from that class, developed a passion for it, and turned it into freelance work. 

If you had to, what characteristic of yours would you give the most credit to?
As already mentioned, I would say critical thinking, thinking outside the box, and thinking ahead of time. Without any of that, I would think one would be prone to limited thinking qualities.
