56 years ago when I got mine an it kinda something to help me stand out
1:01
now it’s not talk to other people figure out what are those other things that I
1:06
need
1:07
because opportunities are gonna go to the folks that are learning that are
1:11
cutting edge
1:12
not the people that say I learned at I have everything I need
1:16
I’ll just check out of learning done I’m good
1:20
network daily like I said before this is something
1:25
that you wanna live it needs to be at every fiber of your being
1:29
there’s people that if they can on national you know everybody and you’re
1:34
really outgoing and

I responses this takes a lot of work a lot of work
1:40

1:53
quick note

2:08
a job opportunities on job boards the other eighty percent never
2:12
are posted online there through people your so-and-so know somebody
2:17
that is thinking about opening a position and those are the opportunities
2:21
that are the best because you don’t have a hundred people competing for him
2:25
those are the ones where it’s really powerful because your friend says no I
2:30
know them and they’re really good
2:32
you think employers to go I’m out just put it that
2:35
