1. Adopt my core value: Esteem others above yourself. Think the best of everyone. Forgive easy. Don’t be offended. Be humble! Jesus loves humility!
2. Prepare as best you can. Get your pitch ready. Study the craft. Edit your story. Get that hook set so you can converse with an editor or agent about your work.
3. Adopt a casual professional look. Don’t spend a bunch of money you don’t have, but go through your wardrobe and figure out what looks good on you. Your outfits don’t have to be the latest styles, but try to look as professional as possible.
4. Pray, pray, pray.
5. Reach out to others beforehand. It helps break the ice the first day.
