Network, network, network! Put yourself out there. You will be turned down for jobs and meetings, it won't feel good, but the only way to meet people in the business is to put yourself out there. Contact business people that you admire and ask for 20 minutes of their time! Ask them questions about how to break into the industry that you are interested in. Ask them what they would do if they were in your shoes. Have your resume ready and give it out freely. Business owners and employees won't reach out to you - they don't need to. It is up to you to take hold of your future and be proactive in getting where you want to be. Don't look to anyone for hand outs. You are in charge of your future!
