You may be overlooked at your job because you are young. Just be patient and work hard. In time you will be recognized for your great work ethic and killer skills if you just put the time in. This also means have confidence. It’s challenging when you lack the experience that the more mature folk have. Don’t be afraid to speak up about what you can offer. Be persistent when it comes to your goals. Being an entrepreneur has its ups and downs. You will experience hardship and challenges with your business, but don’t give up. If you do, you may miss out on something really great. It’s going to take time, lots of effort, sacrifice, and who knows what else to achieve your business goals. Being persistent is the key to everyone’s success, so stick with it. Focus on the advantages of youth. You have more energy for your job than the older folk. You also most likely have less family obligations to hold you back, and are more likely to have a renewed sense of life and ready to get working.


When working with others be confident and follow through. If you are talk the talk, walk the walk. Let’s say you tell your boss you are going to do x,y, and z. Follow through and you will have more credibility when it comes to dealing with others.
