● Be authentic, be real, be yourself.

● Stay curious and challenge the status quo. You will learn more through those conversations than you would otherwise.

● Set realistic, yet challenging, goals for yourself.

● Make a plan and get to work.

● Give yourself grace.

● Ask for help – If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together.

● Do not give up! Be resilient. Do not put an expiration date on your success!
