Mindset for Success
Be a Tortoise, not a Hare. Don’t try to send out as many resumes as you can, as fast as you can. Instead, take a few extra hours to create something that’s too good to ignore for that one company you really want to work for. Stand out and earn that interview!
Be Genuine. Instead of trying to collect as many business cards and superficial linkedIN connections as possible, DM a person you admire a genuine question. Quality beats quantity in your network, any day.
Ask for Help. You don’t have to have it all figured out and you don’t have to suffer in silence. Knowing when to ask for help is an essential life and business skill. Need some guidance for your unique situation? Reach out!
Don’t do Sh*t you Hate
You don’t have to find your One True Calling™ right away, but also: don’t do shit you hate!

Quote of the Week
“Life’s purpose is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting ‘Holy shit, what a ride!'”
