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. I’m glad that was my mentality because some of the best career advice I ever got came from this writer’s conference. Just in case you’re not planning to go to a writer’s conference anytime soon, it’s my pleasure to share that career advice and life advice with you now. Writer or not, these lessons learned will encourage you in your career, your faith, and your life.
