1. Everyone Is Winging It
Everyone's making it up as they go along. You don't have to have all the answers to do a good job.
If you're suffering from imposter syndrome or feel out of your depth, know you're not the only one crying in the bathroom at lunchtime. It's really just a case of who's putting on the best performance.

2. You Are Your Own Greatest Investment
Whether it's some software, a gadget, a book or an online course, spending money on expanding your knowledge and skillset will never be wasted.

3. Assumption Is The Mother of All F*ckups
Ask, clarify, ask again.
Don't fall into the trap of nodding your head and pretending you've understood something when you haven't. It will come out, you will look silly and you will regret it.

4. Tips To Make Working From Home Better
Working from home can be a blessing but it can also be hard to be productive. Here are a few tips to help:
- Stretch often.
- Have a shower.
- Eat a nutritious breakfast.
- Create a welcoming workspace.
- Set your alarm for the same time every day.
- Get out of the house and go for an afternoon walk.
- Do something productive in the time you would've spent on your commute.

5. How to survive your first speaking scenario:
Public speaking is a very common fear, but the more you move up the corporate ladder, the more you'll have to do it. Here are some tips to survive your first talk:
- Take your time, pause often.
- Avoid filler words such as "like, uhm, you know, well, etc."
- Avoid coffee–nerves and caffeine are not a wise combination.
- Keep a glass or bottle of water so your throat doesn't get dry.
- Prep and test all the tech equipment before starting the presentation.
- Maintain eye contact with your audience–just look at one person at a time when speaking.
- Don't freak out if you mess up–most people are in their own heads and likely not fully paying attention to you anyway.
