The Best Career Advice I Ever Got was from a Writer’s Conference

The Best Career Advice I Ever Got was from a Writer’s Conference

I’m surprised to say that some of the best career advice I ever got didn’t come from a career center but a writer’s conference. I was stretched like never before, tested in my faith, and doubting whether I would come out of the other side stronger. Being my first conference, I wasn’t sure what to expect, so I went in with the idea that I would be a sponge and soak up all of the information that I could get.

Waiting and Feeling Stuck at Work: What are You Waiting for?
