The ugly truth is that there’s a stigma around advertising students from the south. For us, breaking into advertising means finding another way in because the front door is locked. But who needs a key when you’ve got a crowbar?

As much as I hate to give Barry the satisfaction of reading these words, work hard and play nice. There’s value in being underestimated. Use it to your advantage and maintain a humble confidence while outworking everyone else.

Being creative for a living is a privilege, and to truly be great at it, you have to understand that there’s always room to improve. This willingness to grow, evolve, and learn will get you so much further than natural talent ever could.

Okay. Bye.
