6 things I’ve learnt

Keep an open mind

You never know what’s round the corner and opportunity sometimes knocks when you least expect it.

Be your best

Don’t get stuck in a rut, strive to develop yourself personally and professionally.

Quality is key

You can self-promote all you want, but the best form of marketing is to be good at what you do.

Never get too comfortable.

The industry and the world in general is permanently evolving. You have to be adaptable.

There’s no such word as goodbye.

Because the same people tend to show up again and again in this business.

”Me time” is key

We all enjoy what we do, but it’s not the be all and end all.
