Let’s start by talking about how much of a stressful topic this is for millennials and gen Zs. From juggling multiple side-hustles and a day job to managing debt to feeling torn between having to wait to make it (the dream job—so close, yet so far) and choosing a profession you don’t like to make more moolah (‘cause bills, am I right?), the struggle is real. Yes, patience is essential, but if you’ve got talent, why should you have to settle for less? Girl, if a pop star can go to great heights at a very young age, you can too. Follow along with this checklist to get through the tough times.
1 Be aware that where you work doesn't matter. It’s what you do and how they treat you that matters.
