Do What You Love – I have always bee taught that if your find a job you love, you never work a day in your life. If your doing what you love to do, there is no doubt that you wont be successful at it.
Preparation and Planning- My mentor has always told me to make sure I have a strategic plan. You must be able to identify how you will get from point A to point B. You know the saying “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.”
