Career tip

"Create a plan and work your plan, whether you are just starting your career or just starting college. To paraphrase Myles Munroe: "If you aim at nothing you will never miss. Planning creates bullseyes, it creates destinies, it creates targets. Without a plan you are just shooting in the wind."

Haneef NelsonMake your plan rigid enough to meet your goals, yet flexible to adapt to the unexpected. Once you have a plan, seek guidance and make changes when necessary."
