In today's Best Advice series, Ted shares one of the big truths he has come to know by way of his own professional journey – that there is no such thing as "overnight success" in our business.  Instead,  success comes from a career long march of incremental professional growth -   in knowledge, skills, experience and understanding. No matter where we want to go in life, for most of us, success is built one step at at time.
