  1. Persist in finding your purpose. There's a power in giving up when you realize you're on the wrong path.
  2. It's not about learning new skills, but making your existing skills valuable to the world.
  3. Start a dialogue to identify your strengths. Why do people ask you for advice? What are you often assigned to do?
  4. Experience produces confidence. Go create that experience.
  5. Be curious. Be willing to ask the "what if" questions.
  6. Simplify. Make it easy for customers to take action.
  7. We all have crazy ideas and dumb ideas. But when the idea keeps coming back, it's there for a reason.
  8. Write out your steps. Create a process that won't change how you work, but will support and guide you towards your dream.
  9. Even if you only have 20 minutes, make those 20 minutes count. Identify what's essential and know in advance what you'll work on.
  10. You don't have to live your life the way others expect you to.
