The crux of the maven mindset is believing in your dreams.
Believe in what you want SO MUCH that it has no choice but to materialize. I have experienced this so many times in my life, it's unreal.
When I graduated college, I had no full-time offer and the greatest desire to be in the music business. I had one interview at the Weather Channel for some entry level production gig (that my Women in Communications mentor set me up with) and the lady that interviewed me sat there and listened to me talk about my internship experiences at Paste Magazine, Oydssey Entertainment, and the Atlanta Chapter of The Recording Academy. She said, “It’s apparent that you love music so much. You should work in music. What are you doing here?”
