9. Incubate your talents
If you have big dreams of career or entrepreneurial success seek to spend some time working in organizations that will help you incubate your talents. Corporate incubators can help you gain exposure to customers suppliers and competitors; foster specific managerial technical and planning skills; and learn how to do things better by working in less-than-optimal environments for sub-optimal managers. By spending a few years in a corporate environment specifically cultivating skills and making contacts you can more easily propel yourself either to greater success in your next career move or to a position where you can start your own business.
