It all starts with a dream that builds up inside, which molds itself into a powerful purpose. Whenever you feel discouraged or loose your direction, remind yourself of the original reason why you started this great venture.
Try to visit your original plan of action, fine tuning it as you eliminate time-wasting frustrations. Remain focused by documenting your thoughts in detail as this will become the visual, which you can use to add to the planning process with renewed momentum.
Accept the fact that you are perfectly imperfect and that human error, ups and downs are part of the process. Know that the true learning curve is in the mistakes we make. Without this self-acceptance, you will be putting yourself under un-necessary pressure. Remember that diamonds are created under pressure.

“Always on duty” should be your approach to networking. Tell people who you know and meet what you do and how passionate you are about it.
