At the American Marketing Association Connecticut Regional Marketing Conference this past weekend the students asked our Alumni panel for tips for moving from college to career.
My tip: You are who you surround yourself with.
I even explained how I assumed the professors in the audience didn’t expect me, of all people, to one day be giving tips to students, along with a successful Alumni panel.
It’s not always easy, but sometimes you have to reassess who you’re surrounding yourself with. Are they helping you or holding you back? Are they encouraging you or enabling you?
In my case, as soon as I started shoving myself into situations with dream chasers and move makers, life changed.
