Thank you so much you're puttingthis together hi my name is Malapai and I'm a salesand marketing coordinator for Work Tango today I'll be covering my topthree tips to hit the ground running after change. Let's can me aftergraduation layoff career change or taking the plunge to start your ownbusiness. These are tips that I have used personally and then have helped meImmensi early on on my career, and I...

...like to share them with all of you inthe hope that it helps you in your future endeavors whatever those may be,and these are some things that I wish others in academia and in myprofessional career would have told me earlier. So I'm going to tell you tosave you the time now without further ado. Let's get right down to it with myfirst tip tip number one would be to find your skill set understand what youwant and then go out and execute. So when I first talked to recent gradssince I was on myself a little while ago, and my advice would e to lookbeyond your degree, you're not limited to the field chose at school and why itmay help you to get a job in that sector. Don't limit yourself if you'reinterested in something else upward mobility comes from experience, notnecessarily education, so don't put yourself in a box before ever tryingyour other areas of interest is also goes for those starting their ownbusiness. You don't need an NBA or a business degree to start just the ideaof what you want to do and the willingness to execute is enough to getyou started immediately after change. You were likely nervous and anxious ofwhat's to come in the future, so to help mitigate those feelings ofuncertainty. I found it helpful to sit...

...down and physically write down. Yes,get out a pen and paper and physically write down where your ideal situationis and ask yourself questions like what work do I enjoy doing, and what am Igood at then make a plan that balances those two answers, and it will put youon the right path to a successful future. When you found out what you'repassionate about you, get the motivation to keep moving and working,and when you find out what you're good at it makes it easier to double down onyour idea since in it's right in your key skill set in the end, what we're all looking tobe is our idea of success and what success means is really the fulfilmentof your dreams. Now these questions in this exercise helped me to nail downwhat I wanted to do with my future and even if you're, not successful, youstill fill the time with something you love to do, which is something thatmany people don't get to say. To put this into perspective, many successfulmusicians spent years of their lives, doing unpaid performances and the onlyreason they kept playing was because they had because they love to perform.So when you find your skill set and what you love to do, keep at it anddon't put down that instrument.

My second tip would be to statepositive, while failing changing and adjusting now positive outlook inmental state can go a long way in motivation, productivity and your senseof self. This goes back to my first tip, where, in order to build your skill setand understand what you want, you're going to have to make continuousadjustments and changes to truly figure out what works best for you, so you can't be afraid to fail change,adjust and then fail again and again, it's a part of life and, although itsucks in the moment, you always learn way more from your failures than yoursuccesses. So take it as a learning opportunity and move on just sittingaround doing nothing or staying in the same uncomfortable spot you're. In nowwill do you no good in your career school or whatever change it goingthrough you're expected to and should make mistakes nobody's perfect and theearlier on. You can fail, learn and move on the more compounds over timeand then the next thing you know you're a few years ahead of where you wouldhave been had you not taken the plunge and been mentally prepared to mess upand pick up the pieces.

Mental health plays a huge part, innessso take time to focus on your mental health as much as you're, focusing ongetting them to that next step in life get outside spend time with friends andfamily, and especially while working from home, create a clear line betweenwork and personal time. Do whatever releases dress intention in your life,and I found me much and I found myself to be much more productive when I takecare of my mental health and studies have shown that I posibly influencesproductivity. Now you can change past as many timesas you like in life, but you only have one brain and one body so take care ofit, stay positive and don't get discouraged. The path of success isnever linear, so keep at it and you will not might get there some day. Finally, the last tip I'll leave. Youwith is be proactive. Now this is a big one, so once you've even partiallyfigured out, you don't need to have every last detail, figured out, beproactive and take the first step. This can take on many forms, one of thembeinglearning and training. Even online...

...courses to harm yourself for theknowledge to get started. Education doesn't happen in a doesn't just happenin a classroom, and you can know- and you know literally have the world ofyour fingertips, so use it and spend time learning absorbing information anddoing your best to put it into practice. I read a quote once that said somethingalong the lines of a man who reads ten books, but doesn't change is the sameas a man who reads no books, and I think that rings true to what I'msaying now. I mean it's great to learn in your own time, but you have to beproactive and get out there and put it into action. If not, then you riskwasting the time you spent learning by not putting it into practice. Networking is also another form ofbeing proactive in my eyes. That's a tough one for introverts, but try andbuild connections through networking events, cold emails and linked inmessages or any other way. You can think of be prepared when reaching outto the person and also let them do the talking but be president in theconversation soak up as much as you can and learn from them. This is a greatway to learn business. Lessons from others challenge your way of thinkingand build an index of people that might...

...be able to support you and vice versa.This is also improves your chances of landing, a new job people who knowsomeone in the industry often land a more coveted job than those that aresimply applying to the postings online. I've used this personally withouttrying to land a job by setting myself a goal to network with a sedan numberof people this year. As a result, I've met some amazing and smart people thathave helped me tremendously in real estate and put me in contact with theirnetwork that have been a big help to me. As I begin to build my real estateportfolio, networking is one of the most powerful tools in your kit and atsomething I didn't fully appreciate until recently, so go out there andnetwork, even in these remote times, it's easy to network with people,because they don't even have to leave the comfort of their own home, andneither do you every organization, most powerful asset is their people, so goout there and connect with them. You never know where it may lead and it'sextremely valuable to continue learning once your education is complete and agreat way to do. That is to be proactive network and then get to work...

...from all the wealth and all of humanhistory. One thing that has never been bought is time so use it wisely, getout there and get moving time waits for nobody and being proactive, andnetworking is a great way. T is a great first step. Well. That concludes my three tips andthat's everything for me. So I want to think Scotch so much for having me onthe show, and I hope to see you all in later episodes if you want to connectwith me, my linkedin can be found in the description of this podcast takecare anyways, that's all there is for today.I hope that inspires you to take action and to be successful to get resultsright out of the gate. Remember any business questions you have. Don'tworry. I got you. This is the ten minute. NBA have a great day I'll seeit tomorrow.
