Your favorite piece of advice: Hang in there! Someone long ago said it takes “blood, sweat and tears.” Know that no matter what you are doing, if you are pushing yourself to be the best you can be in your career, there will always be challenges. One day you love your job and the next, you might hate it. But if most days are good, and you are challenging yourself in a meaningful way, with a little luck you will have the career of your dreams! I’m a believer in luck. It’s a cosmic thing that shows you the writing on the wall. Also, keep a lot of horseshoes around your apartment.

Your favorite piece of advice: I am not one to quote internet memes but “Nevertheless, she persisted” seems appropriate here.
