If you were starting fresh, what would you primarily focus on? (e.g. as a new web designer/developer)
What is one piece of advice you think is most important for web developers/designers going forward?
Invest in getting out and meeting people. Go to local meetups or a conference and make some friends. I can rewind where things started for me, and all roads lead to connections and friends I've made going to conferences — meeting people face to face.
What would you do to get out of a slump or plateau with your web career?
Figure out what you are really passionate about and pursue it every day. You can't excel if you're not passionate about what you're doing. Talk to the friends you made at the recent conference you attended and ask them for advice. Whatever you do, don't be an island.
What is 1 thing you would like to see web developers/designers doing more of?
I'd like more people to say this with me "Not an imposter." You are not an imposter. You belong here. You're not a fraud. Don't believe the lie. You are worth it.
