Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for high school students

Start exploring what you are great at. Don't settle for roles or occupations that aren't a good fit for what you are naturally gifted to do well. Always evaluate opportunities by whether or not they fit your unique strengths. Seek out relationships with adults that are your biggest fans and supporters and encourage you to pursue objectives and goals that stretch you to be your best. Read and learn about people that inspire you to pursue your own path.
