After receiving his Master's degree, Samuel Adams began the search for a job. He  halfheartedly began studying law but found that his mother's strong opposition  prevented any serious study. He joined the counting house of Thomas Cushing, hoping  to succeed in business. He quickly proved that he severely lacked business abilities.  After a few months, Cushing broke the news to Adams and his parents that Adams  would never be a merchant. Cushing remarked that he trained men to be merchants, not  politicians. Adams's father thought that there might be hope for the young man to  become a financier and thus loaned him a thousand pounds with which to begin  business. Adams lost almost every penny in a single transaction. Samuel Adams then  joined his father in the family brewery.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
