Business Consultant in Houston:
"Stay positive, and act professionally at all times."
In my case, I started in the advertising trenches where we had to cut and past the add. We did not have graphic designers to do our work for us and we did all of our paperwork before leaving home at night, so sometimes it was a late night. My advice it to never give up on your dream: ever. No matter how hard the climb, climb it. You can do anything you set your mind to.
