3 Key Points from This Episode:

  1. When just starting out, one of the cheapest forms of advertising you can get is word of mouth. Encourage your customers or clients to tell others about it, and if you’ve provided them with an amazing experience they’ll have no hesitations recommending you to others.
  2. Be clear on where you’re going. If you’re not clear on where you’re headed, it makes it that much harder for other people to help you get there.
  3. Sitting at your computer and filling out job applications is only one part of getting a job. The other part is getting out there and networking with the people and companies you are interested in working with and making those first-hand connections.
