How to get noticed

1. Create. Do, fail, do, do, fail, fail, fail, do and do again. Eventually (and that’s the key part), they’ll see your work.

2. Network. Do it right, not like they teach you in college. Helping others is the goal, not getting a foot in the door or your business card in someone’s hand.

3. Blog. For a long time. And before you need it. (Want to write a book? Start now and publishers will be ringing in three years.) Drip, drip, drip. Post by post people see your thoughts. Then one day…the egg hatches.

99. Resume and interview. #99 is actually still not far enough down the list, but you get the point: resumes and interviews are the last resort for remarkable people.
