All it takes is one connection to get closer to your dream school or job. When you meet with them, care about what the person is saying and ask them if there is anyone else that you should meet.
Always write a thank you note after every interaction and make your thank you note seem personal - reference a detail from the interaction so it feels more custom and heartfelt.
The fear of doing new things is one of the biggest mental blocks for people. Our thoughts create the emotions we feel. When you are feeling afraid, ask yourself “What am I so afraid of?” and get really clear on what exactly your fears are.
