Biggest Lesson Learned: “Compliment people’s work. Even if it’s for a small thing, reach out and compliment someone’s work. Don’t do it to butter the other person up or in hopes of getting something from them. Do it for something that person made you enjoy. If you’re doing it right, you should feel a tad awkward reaching out to genuinely compliment someone’s work.”
