Hey, thanks for having me saying an absolute pleasureof 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 topeople? Yeah, I appreciate you asking because you know, careers are along journey. There's a ton of things that you can go through and amillion things can change. So I first want to say just go slow andtake your time and don't think that it's going to come at you right awayand when change says come, accepted and be ready to take the resources thatyou have at and to own those changes...

...and continue growing your career. Ithink the major thing that I've learned throughout the thirteen years since graduating college isthere's Times where I question you know what my career is or you know whereI'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 toget 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 helpedyou make good decisions and don't be afraid to make those people part of yourinternal board. And that's been very successful for me, you know, whenjust looking at my career and how I advanced it and what I definitely liketo speak to canids about when having those of the first initial conversations of whatthey're looking for, where they're looking to go with their career. It's beingpatient 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 thenmake sure that you develop the right relationships. Is that right? Yes, sir, definitely, you know, make...

...sure you're making the relationships, andI 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, whereI was on the agency side, so I would say I was assearching or building relationships, you know, with people in different industries, whereasnow working more on the internal side, the relationships that I'm building, youknow, for a career advancement or more so with internal stakeholders, you know, who I want to create long term relationships with, not necessarily more soon business connection, you know, where I'm hoping to eventually hire for multiplecompanies.
