I strayed from JPIA because once in the industry for a while, I didn't want to blog as a "newbie." I wanted esteem. Well I'm here to say that was a rubbish idea.
Andrew Hovell, a planner over the pond, says it best: "I'm an idiot. Good." No matter if you just found out you want to be a planner or you've been in the industry for 20 years, keep your newbie hat on. Stay curious, stay involved, keep reading, keep trying.
A planner's job is never done.
