Are You Tired Of Hearing The Same Old Career Advice Over And Over Again?

👉🏼 Follow your passion! 👉🏼 Network as much as possible! 👉🏼 Dress for success!

Blah, blah, blah!

If you’re like me, you’re probably wondering if there’s anything else out there.

Well, I’ve got some career advice for you and this is after spending too many years in corporate.

These are the things I wish I knew before embarking on my own career journey.


↘ First of all, forget about following your passion. Passion is overrated. Sure, it’s great if you can find a job that aligns with your interests, but it’s not the be-all and end-all. Instead, focus on your skills.

What are you really good at? What sets you apart from others? Identify your strengths and build on them. Monetize your mind! Monetize your personality!

You’ll be much happier and more successful in the long run.

Side note: I’ve NEVER been in a job I’m truly passionate about. So I close that passion loophole by volunteering offline.


↘ Next up, networking. Yes, it’s important, but don’t waste your time going to boring networking events and trying to schmooze with people you don’t even like. Instead, focus on building real relationships with people you admire and respect.

Attend events that interest you, join online communities, and engage with people on social media. If you’re genuine and authentic, the connections will come naturally.


And as for dressing for success, well, that’s just silly. Wear what makes you feel comfortable and confident. If you’re not comfortable in a suit, don’t wear one.

If you’re more productive in yoga pants, go for it. Don’t want pants at all? I support you 100%. Your clothes shouldn’t define you or your career.


↘ Another piece of advice I wish I had known earlier is to embrace failure. Failure is not the end of the world. It’s a valuable learning experience that can help you grow and improve. I’ve failed forwards, backwards, sideways.

Don’t be afraid to take risks and try new things. You might fail, but you WILL learn so many valuable lessons.


↘ Finally, and most importantly, don’t compare yourself to others.

While social media may seem like a highlight reel of success stories, behind every triumph lies a trail of tears and tantrums. So don’t be fooled by the pineapples and peaches, because the road to success is often paved with potholes and pitfalls.

We all have our own unique paths and timelines. What works for someone else might not work for you, and that’s okay. Focus on your own journey and don’t get caught up in the comparison trap.

Pave your own way. 🙌🏼
