Always try to say yes to a job, new experience, or opportunity. Then do whatever it takes to teach yourself everything you can to succeed. When I interviewed at KRLY-FM in Houston years ago, I was asked if I could type. I said yes I can.

I type quite fast now thank you and that radio thing worked out okay as well.
