Believe in yourself. If you don’t believe in you, why should I believe in you??
Identify your values. Know where and for what you want to be remembered.
Be part of a community. You need to insert yourself in a community that will enhance you and that YOU will add value to. FIND that community from your existing relationships.
Take money out of the equation for a second. This is more than financial success. This is everlasting recognition for your accomplishments. Don’t worry about getting paid at first. If you’re getting paid, GREAT! If not, you have a shot to prove yourself. Be willing and eager to prove your self worth.
