1. Get inspiration from everywhere– even from your hobbies.
Apparently, playing video games for 5 hours straight or even watching TV is actually a way to get your creative juices flowing according to Cyrene. Just do what you normally love to do and that’s where you can grab inspiration from.
2. Accept opportunities that won’t be there forever.
If you want to land that dream job, don’t be afraid of taking risks. Cyrene left a stable job for something that she wasn’t sure of. But after weighing her options and realizing that she could go back to the corporate world anytime anyway, she took the leap.
3. Know what your personal brand is and show that through your content.
If you love what you do, others will want to be a part of it. This is what would make people want to follow you. Producing content that you don’t really like or understand won’t work.
4. Don’t look at struggles as mere “Struggles”
“I don’t see struggles as struggles. I see them as like steps to reach success. I’m just going to try and make the most out of the experience. This will contribute to my success later on” says Cyrene. If a company rejects you or if you don’t get the gig you want, just let it pass. See it as an opportunity to work with someone else.
5. If you can’t find work, make it.
Everyone has their own brand– whether its all about your personality or your talent– make use of it. “You have your own brand. You have YOU. You have something interesting in your life that nobody has known before. You might have a story that nobody knows” she shares. With the power of social media, you can easily produce your own story that people would want to follow and that brands would want to sponsor.
