Lately I’ve found myself having a lot of conversations with people about beginnings.
People are often surprised to learn that, no, I don’t have PR diploma and that I have a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and not a communications degree. And yet here I am, a public relations professional (and I like to think, a pretty darn good one.)
How did I get to where I am now?
I picked up some freelancing gigs. I listened to people. Really listened. I learned from others in the space. I taught myself everything I possibly could.
I started somewhere.
If there’s something you want to in life – a career, a hobby, a skill – the only way to make it happen is to just do it. Start somewhere. Even if that somewhere feels like the middle of nowhere with no roads in sight.
Just start somewhere.
