Little bit of good luck
Well, yes, sometimes good luck comes into play. For example, taking a job you didn’t want because it was the only one available and the company grew dramatically. These stories happen, but they are not the norm. Most often, people make their own luck.

Until next time, work hard, work smart, and continue to build your professional brand.
