Now, Hakim. Welcome back to the show, hey thanksfor having me saying an absolute pleasure. Being re excited to get thisFriday kicked off. Thank you, yeah. WE'RE EQUALLY EXCITED!So here's our question for you on Friday, finable. What's the number onepiece of cur advice you want to give to people yeah, I appreciate you askingbecause you know careers are a long journey. There's a ton of things thatyou can go through and a million things can change. So I first want to say justgo, slow and take your time and don't think that it's going to come at youright away and when change says, come accepted and be ready to take theresources that you have at hand to own those changes and continue drawing yourcareer. I think the major thing that...

I've learned throughout the thirteenyears since graduating college this there's Times where I question you knowwhat my career is or you know where I'm going with it. But that's when I youknow rely on my trusted board. Members of those are friends family members,that I've continued to rely on to get career advice, and I would say, if youdon't have that for yourself. Definitely take the time to spend. Youknow a few ments saying who has helped you make open decisions and don't beafraid to make those people part of your internal board and that's beenvery successful for me. You know when just looking at my career and how Iadvance it and what I definitely like this week to Canis about when havingthose first initial conversations of what they're looking for and wherethey're looking to go with their career, that's being patient with it andknowing that it's always about in changing so be patient, know that it'sevolving and changing take a long term view and then make sure that youdevelop the right relationships. Is that right? Yes, sir? I definitely youknow, make sure you re making the...

...relationships and, I would say, O mine,those relationships change over time. As you change you, I've been at points,you know in my life and career, where I was on the agency side, so I would sayI was associating or building relationships you know with people inthe different industries, whereas now working more on the internal side, therelationships that I'm building you know for a career advancement or moreso with internal stakeholders. You know who I want to create long termrelationships with, not necessarily more so a business connection. You knowwhere I'm hoping to eventually no hire for multiple companies makes a lot ofsense.
