Generation Y has tons of reasons to not pursue their dreams: there's no clear path to success, it's too risky, people are telling you not to go for it.
Prologue Profiles brings you the stories of those choosing to ignore these reasons and go after their dreams anyway.
I'm proud to present to you the following 'Generation Why Not' montage using footage from the 2014 season of Prologue Profiles. I hope you enjoy!

"I just went for it." - Raquel Furtado
While studying to become a nurse Raquel developed a thyroid disorder and was sentenced to a life of daily medication.
Switching to a whole foods diet Raquel fully recovered and in 2012 launched her own juice business called Pitanga Juice.
In the spring of 2014 Raquel raised $50,000 on Kickstarter and is now looking to open her own storefront in Bushwick, Brooklyn.
You'll hear Raquel discuss how a life-threatening disorder led to a life-changing career path, the encouraging signals of success and that reaching the next level has nothing to do with your comfort zone.

"Just keep testing." - Michael Roderick
After college Michael worked as a high school teacher learning how to...teach and became a theater producer on the side where he learned how to raise money. In 2010 Michael listened to his passions and took the leap to teach his own networking workshop. He hasn't looked back.
Michael is now a connector where he helps people grow their business by growing their own personal relationships.
You'll hear Michael discuss he connected the dots to become a connector, the power of experiments, and that if you say you want to get to the next level you're also saying you have a lot to learn.
