HAVE A SUPPORT SYSTEM
Talk to people in the community; you can often find mentors in unexpected places. The more people you can talk to, the better. And create a good support system that believes in you. If I didn’t have the support of my partner, Dean, and my friends and family, I don’t know if I’d have accelerated at the speed I did. There were days when I’d ring my sister in a panic. It’s stressful and it’s hard work. But it’s so worth it. I absolutely love my job!
