Find someone who did what you want to do, and do what they did.
If you were driving, and someone told you a direct way to get to a destination, you wouldn’t intentionally meander on another winding path. So why should you do that for the path of your career?
Do your research and find people, whether on the internet, television, or elsewhere, who have managed to actualize your dream. Once you do that, the process is as simple as lather, rinse, repeat.
