Tip 1: Learn from the pros first. It’s ok to work under someone.

“In today’s world you have to interact. You can’t really be some difficult, shy person who is not able to look somebody in the face. You have to present yourself.

If you can’t be passionate about who you are and what you are doing: how can they [your audience] be?” –Anna Wintour
?Tip 4: Get employed, even if it’s not your dream job.
