Mindset for Success

Go Deep, Not Wide. Instead of applying 200+ times, find one single company you really love and go above and beyond.Spot gaps in the business you can solve and create a custom solution to prove your skills. Ram that door open!

Allow Yourself To Fail. Reach out to someone new on LinkedIN, cold email a company, blog about what you’re doing publicly. Go do stuff, and see what happens. Failure is the key to success.

Don’t Go Naked. Just like your clothes, your online reputation sends a signal. You will be Googled. So take charge of your online reputation. Work out loud and showcase who you are.
