Rule: Honestly connect to your craft(s).

"I believe that connecting honestly to my craft(s), and how my intuition tells me to use it, has served me better than any formal training or technique. Networking and interning in an industry where your role is unclear will only get you so far. You need to think long-term — how can you create opportunities now that will evolve with you, and serve you well 10 years from now? This isn't a privileged viewpoint, it's survivalism for grownups."
