Vedder spoke about his start as a security officer in San Diego, prior to forming the band Pearl Jam, where a government program gave him opportunities he otherwise wouldn't have had. 

This video is posted by Corrine Clement, COO of ChoiceCenter Leadership University who asked the President on Thursday what advice he would have for people who want to achieve extraordinary results in life. His response: "First, you have to have a vision, but then its all about persistence. It's ALL about persistence. Persistence will have you achieve any goal to the end result.""
