Twenty Under 40!

Michael Evans | Twenty under 40!

What motivates or inspires you to better the community? Ever since becoming a resident of Stark County in 2013, I became attached and intrigued. I want to bring forth the same successes to Canton that I have seen in other large Ohio cities. I know that Canton can grow and prosper as other cities have, and that is what motivates me to contribute through volunteering and community service.

What is the best career advice you’ve ever been given? The best career advice wasn’t in words, but in actions. My parents have always demonstrated an exceptional work ethic, and that has left a strong impression and general guidance for me. They’ve given a lot to ensure I found my passions, and I think with their guidance, they’ve positioned me as a strong asset to organizations I’m associated with.

What is the best career advice you’ve ever been given? The best career advice I have ever been given is probably something from the book “The Hard thing about Hard things,” by Ben Horowitz, “Life is struggle.” I believe that within that quote lies the most important lesson in entrepreneurship: Embrace the struggle. I’ve always gone my path. It hasn’t always been easy, but I do so with decisive determined action.

What advice would you give the younger generation when it comes to advancing in their careers or strengthening Stark County? Get comfortable being uncomfortable. No great opportunity worth achieving will come easy. Be encouraged to step outside your comfort zone and walk through doors of new opportunity. You would be surprised of the accomplishments you can achieve simply by taking advantage of an opportune moment. Show up. Push forward. Don’t quit. Repeat.

What is the best career advice you’ve ever been given? “Plan B and a good sense of humor.” This advice was given to me when I was still in high school, getting ready to start my first job at Freda’s Hallmark in Hartville. My mom, an educator for over 50 years, told me this as a reminder that there will be days I will want to throw in the towel and walk away, but those are the days that I need in my life to make me a better person and inspire me to press on. I still use this phrase today—it has reminded me to not always take certain things in my career so seriously.
