A nondescript bugle player began playing ‘when the saints go marching in’ and went on to become a world renowned Jazz trumpeter. Louis Armstrong is a legend and his humble story is a testimony of the feats determination can help you achieve.

Did you know that Armstrong had played for 50 years and never once lost the groove? Even on off days he would play for a few hours just to keep up the chops.
