Learn quality not quantity. Don't rush. To perform at a high level and do custom work (I.e. Curved Stairway. Crown Molding, Libraries) It takes time. Be patient and do it right the first time. Take pride in your abilities ( don't give them away) Meaning, don't short change yourself and work for pennies. Your ability to do what you do took years to learn through ups and downs. Don't be the low baller. Always adapt and continue to learn. But most importantly listen. Listen to customers and what they want and deliver at the highest level possible.
