Make Your Own Luck
Sharing your ideas with people who share similar interests puts you into unlikely situations. Some might call it luck - but you'll know that it's also because you made a lot of your own luck by signalling through content.
Content will open up your career to choices to work on projects that interest you, with people who want the same things.
