In episode #57, Dorcas reveals her secret to building a huge social presence while remaining authentic. She also reveals why Indomine noodles are the key to managing jobs in which you get paid infrequently. Dorcas' tips for networking are also super handy. Learn how to approach that person at a networking event, or make connections through your existing social media channels.
Just why was 2pac Dorcas' former career idol? Find out in episode 58. Dorcas explains what she looks for in an idol (it's a long list!) and why idolising people can sometimes hinder you.
