I like to reflect on my old journals, writings, and review old goals so I know when to move onto new goals and think about how I've done it in the past. My number one advice is to not be afraid to ask strangers for help and leave your comfort zone/don’t be afraid to go back.

Knowing what to include in your LinkedIn profile and using it appropriately always makes you walk a fine line. It’s tricky because it is a social media platform, but keep in mind that it remains a professional networking platform. It should be an effective reflection of your resume and have information that's easily digestible and readable. Save space and strategize your information format and placement. Keep in mind that endorsements don’t mean much to employers, but recommendations are very effective.

Whether you run your own company, are part of a high flying team or work as a freelancer - pretty much everyone of us will be undervaluing our intellectual assets. Yet they are the one thing that is totally unique to each of us, has the potential to create new value and will go on accruing as we get older... win, win, win.

So what do I mean by 'intellectual assets'? In a nutshell your intellectual assets are everything that has got you to here now. Without exception. Your childhood experience, your home, your lifelong client list, what you've ever been paid to do, your connections. By mapping these and auditing them inventively, you can develop a creative 'offer' that no-one will ever be able to compete with - because they are not you.

Standing back to see the patterns, the overlaps, the skills, new interesting sectors, services you can take from one client to another helps widen and refresh your offer. You can do it annually and each time new perspectives will emerge.

This methodology works across the board. It is simple and highly effective. And you already own the 'ingredients'.

The key things to show in an interview, when you have very little professional experience are:
Personality
Resilience
Thinking outside the box
Times you've been out of your comfort zone
Team work
Passion
Whether this is through sports, travelling, internships or being the oldest of 5 children. If you give examples of how you've pushed yourself and used your initiative, you'll stand out. Also, remember to smile, charisma can take you far.

If you're a creative manager/leader, never - ever - compare someone in your team to their colleagues. The "you should be more like so-and-so" talk helps nobody. It shatters a team member's confidence and you won't achieve what you wanted with the comparison. There are better ways to give constructive criticism to help your creative team blossom.
