Bernie Williams was drafted by the New York Yankees at age 16 and officially signed at 17, forcing him to grow up incredibly fast.
However, while that transition was undoubtedly difficult for the MLB legend, he opened up to Grow Wire about the many lessons he learned during those early years of his career—lessons that he’s carried with him throughout his life and lessons that anyone in any job can definitely learn from, too.
In fact, Williams reveals how he’s taken those lessons and utilized them throughout his post-baseball career in music and philanthropy.
Watch the video above to see how Williams' early lessons apply to your own career path, and why you can never underestimate the power of every growth opportunity, no matter how early or late.
