I would say practice practice and practice, network more than you can breath, be prepared for any opportunity cause you never know when the phone is gonna ring with the opportunity that might change your life. And very very important don’t let anyone tell you, you can’t do something. Like Will Smith says in a movie, “You got a dream you have to protect it”.
