Advice On Breaking Into A Creative Industry

  • Do more than you have to, especially when you’re first starting out. Don’t just do the bare minimum and call it a day.
  • Always find people who will challenge you to improve. Never surround yourself around those don’t care if you stay stagnant.
  • Ask hard questions. Learn how to. And when you get an answer, listen. Sometimes you might not get an answer or you’ll get a no. That’s okay.
  • Don’t try to be perfect. The world won’t end if you mess up or make a mistake.
  • You’re not above anything or anyone. Kindness goes a long way.
  • Deliver on time. Fulfill your end of the deal. If you make a promise, keep it. If you can’t, don’t make one.
  • Chase down chances. No one’s going to hand you anything.
  • Be willing. You may not be the best or the brightest. But if you’re willing to put in the time and effort to get better, you’ll go a long way.
  • Show up and have something to show. Show up on time. Better yet, be early to events, meetings, etc.
  • Trust the process. It’s a long journey. Keep grinding. Trust your work ethic. Stop making excuses. Stop complaining. Put your head down and hustle. Do the work. Get it done.
  • Differentiate yourself. Embrace your differences. Stand out from the rest of the crowd. You’re not anyone else, so be the best version of yourself.
