Skills & Qualities Beyond School

There is no such thing as passion in moderation. When you truly care about what you do for a living and it aligns with your core values, it's not work. Rather it becomes an extension of who you are and the legacy you want to leave behind. Find your passion. Be open-minded. Don't focus on credentials, school name, GPA, etc. in assessing your own value or the value of others -- rather focus on actual accomplishments. Actually DO something -- start small if necessary, but just start.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for professionals

Offer to work for free if necessary at the company of your dreams. Aim high.
