How to Open the Doors of Opportunity
We all have a dream career, but getting there is not easy. Trust me, I know from experience! But as the old proverb goes, as one door closes another one opens.
I always wanted to be a TV reporter and I learned the hard way, as I share on this podcast, that if you’re not prepared you could lose a great opportunity. I only made that mistake once, and I did go on to live my dream job as a news anchor.
Are you finding yourself constantly banging on the door to no avail? Do you wonder why you’re not getting offers, or even interivews?
