skinny buddha sent over this article today and we can't help but re-share on she told you so. in this case, anna told you so...

tip 1: learn from the pros first. it's ok to work under someone.
the only thing i worry a little bit about- going straight from school to starting your own business-is not that many succeed.

tip 2: think about your long-term goals.
it's possible in today's world to be instantly famous, whether it's through instagram or whatever platform it may be, but it's a very different matter to be successful financially in the long term.

tip 3: your personality and presentation matter. a lot. 
in today's world you have to interact. you can't really be some difficult, shy person who is not able to look somebody in the face. you have to present yourself. you have to know how to talk about your vision, your focus, and what you believe in. if you can't be passionate about who you are and what you are doing: how can they (your audience) be?

tip 4: get employed, even if it's not your dream job.
go get a job. whether it's working as a designer or working in a restaurant and then doing your own thing in your own time. it's a reality of life. in the end it's going to be helpful to you and so many others.

tip 5: make sure you have a mentor.
it's important to have someone to talk to and discuss everything with and bounce ideas off of.

k, s, & c
