Going in a new direction? Embrace your stupidity

Harvey Ovshinsky’s March 27 “How to produce a career in film and video” presentation at Eastern Michigan University was packed with great career tips, lots of motivation and plain old common sense.  If you want to break into a new field, or understand a prospective client or write a better news release, follow Harvey’s advice:  “Embrace your stupidity.”  Call somebody who knows something – a friend of a friend or even a complete stranger – and ask if they’ll give you 10 minutes of wisdom in their specialty.  People love to talk about themselves and their work.  Ten minutes will turn into 20 and you’ll have a fresh perspective and maybe even a referral to the next best person to interview. 3/31/10
