Most people are willing to give advise. That is something we all need when starting a new venture. I was speaking with a friend of mine recently about my goals and she made suggestions and said she would keep me in mind if anything in her area would be of interest to me. Make your goals known to others. I’m excited about my future goals so it is easy to talk about them. Listen to advise and options of others. You can accept what suits you and discard the rest.
