There are many life lessons I want to share, but I’ll only talk about a few of them here. Firstly, be optimistic and embrace a long-term perspective. Secondly, be curious, and keep learning and bettering yourself. Thirdly, be authentic – wearing a mask and betraying who you really are never ends well. Fourthly, choose your business partners wisely, whether they be clients, employees, or vendors. Fifthly, maintain a balanced life; in particular, build a routine and know when to disconnect and decompress. Sixthly, build a strong support system – you cannot deal with life alone, and it is important to have a group of people around you that genuinely cares for your wellbeing.
