After shooting live and airing in 53 countries, Wendy sat down in her office to give advice to recent college graduates. “When I was your age, I never thought this would happen.”
Wendy’s advice is very simple. Use your connections, and then be prepared for whatever could come next. “Don’t ask for something that you can’t backup.” You shouldn’t take advantage of a favor someone did for you. If they put their neck out there for you, you should do the same in return.
It’s key to remember that no one story will be the same and there are plenty of ways to get to where you want to go.
Create your own story. The world doesn’t owe you anything. The best thing you can do for yourself now is get it together and get a job. “There is no time for… backpacking through Europe. Who has money like that? Get out there and get yourself a job.”
Real talk for the real world.
Good luck grads and congratulations!
