Hey, thanks for having me saying an absolute pleasure of being here. Excited to get this Friday kicked off. Thank you. Yeah, we're equally excited. So here's our question for you on Friday. fundamals, what's the number one piece of career advice you want to give to people? Yeah, I appreciate you asking because you know, careers are a long journey. There's a ton of things that you can go through and a million things can change. So I first want to say just go slow and take your time and don't think that it's going to come at you right away and when change says come, accepted and be ready to take the resources that you have at and to own those changes...

...and continue growing your career. I think the major thing that I've learned throughout the thirteen years since graduating college is there's Times where I question you know what my career is or you know where I'm going with it, but that's when I rely on my trusted board members, and those are friends, family members that I've continued to rely on to get career advice, and I would say if you don't have that for yourself, definitely take the time to spend a few minutes thaying of who has helped you make good decisions and don't be afraid to make those people part of your internal board. And that's been very successful for me, you know, when just looking at my career and how I advanced it and what I definitely like to speak to canids about when having those of the first initial conversations of what they're looking for, where they're looking to go with their career. It's being patient with it and knowing that it's always involved in changing. So be patient, know that it's evolving and changing, take a long term view and then make sure that you develop the right relationships. Is that right? Yes, sir, definitely, you know, make...

...sure you're making the relationships, and I would say I'm my in those relationships change over time as you change. You I've been that points, you know, in my life and career, where I was on the agency side, so I would say I was as searching or building relationships, you know, with people in different industries, whereas now working more on the internal side, the relationships that I'm building, you know, for a career advancement or more so with internal stakeholders, you know, who I want to create long term relationships with, not necessarily more so on business connection, you know, where I'm hoping to eventually hire for multiple companies.
