Smokey Robinson’s Career Advice

I’m still going through SXSW withdrawal and was checking out the SXSW You Tube channel and came across this video of music legend Smokey Robinson and his keynote from the music conference.

In it, Robinson offers career advice to young people. Though meant for those starting out in music and show business, it should be followed by no matter the career path you chose.

Robinson’s advice:

  • Thicken your skin.
  • Don’t take yourself so seriously.
  • If you get a break, use it and count your blessings.
  • Keep your feet on the ground.
