“Where do you see yourself in 10 years?”

If you had asked yourself that 10 years ago, would you be where you are now?

For most of us, the answer is probably no.

But when Capt. Tyler Kapela was asked that his freshman year of college, guess what his answer was?

“I want to be a fishing guide and host my own TV show.”

And now, he’s a fishing guide and hosts his own TV show!
