RICH BEFORE 30!! (Can your dreams still come true?)

Hey everyone!

Have the recession blues got you feeling down? Here's some inspiration!
I found a really cool article from the "Job Postings" magazine from the Academic Advising and Career Center. It discusses some really useful tips to help you on your road to success. I found it extremely helpful and I really think you should drop by the AA&CC and read it if you get the chance. Here's a quick summary of the 10 steps:

1. FOCUS: Do what makes you happy - Don't over-commit yourself. Figure out which activities will help you achieve your primary goals and learn to say 'no'.

2. PRIORITIZE: don't waste time on things that don't make you happy

3. WORK HARD: and maintain your enthusiasm!

4. RESEARCH: Identify role models in your industry and research what they did.

5. MENTOR: Get a role model to mentor you.

6. TEAM BUILD: Work with people you admire.

7. DO FAVOURS: Go out of your way to lend a hand

8. VOLUNTEERS: Get next to the bigwigs by helping out with special projects

9. TAKE RISKS: create and take opportunities to learn new things.

10. FOCUS AGAIN: Don't let money get in the way of doing what makes you happy.
