Getting Jobs in Entertainment question 1136: It seems like every successful person took a different path to become successful. What's the right path?
Unfortunately, there is no "right path," no clear ladders to climb, no rule book.
Fortunately, that means you can choose your own path, build your own ladder, make your own rules.
My suggestions for doing this are:
1. Get mentors. Plural. Get advice from as many successful people as you possibly can
2. Compare their advice and decide what fits you best
3. Take action
4. See what works what doesn't work
5. Keep doing what's working and keep adding new tools to your tool belt
6. Invest in yourself
7. Create financial and emotional stability so you never have to give up on your dream
