“Getting started early, I think is really key. It’s what you hear all the time, but it’s really true. Like anyone, I would be even further than I am right now if I’d just gotten a little start a little bit earlier, or if I had found some valuable internships earlier. Be willing to say, ‘It’s okay to start as an intern’ with low  pay. It’s going to help put some milestones on your resume and help you to level-up beyond that.”
