Why should I listen to you?
I've spent $20K+ on learning material and spent more than 10K hours on this to figure it out for myself.
I have applied less than 50% of what I'm sharing here and it already working for the past 5+ years.
If you are a different type of designer or creative most of this will be useful for you just bear in mind all my examples and references are from the UX world since this is what I do.
If you looking to get hired by a big tech company you shouldn’t listen to me. I have no experience with that.
