The facebook group asked me what I would do differently if I had the opportunity to start over.
Really, I've made so many mistakes.
Spent money is many of the wrong places.
Worked with people I wish I'd never had met.
And taken some really bad advice in the past.
I pondered this question for a day or so, I let it ruminate, made a list, then widdled it down to 4 bullet points:
- I would have analyzed my goals and made a plan to achieve them.
- I would have aggressively sought education.
- I would have focused on learning Business skills
- Built better networks in the RIGHT places.
As I've said, I've taken some bad advice in the past (and ignored some good stuff, too). So heed at your own risk, or, well, take this with a grain of salt and perform some introspection of your own.
