#01 DON’T KILL YOUR PREDECESSORS (DO LEARN FROM THEM)
If you can, try not to kill them. You’ll get far more wisdom and learnings from them if you can keep them alive – especially if they’ve been doing the job for years and you are quite new.
#02 DO DOUBLE CHECK YOUR CONTRACTUAL COMMITMENTS

#03 DO BE OPEN TO A NEW CAREER
When you have a special skill set, you should embrace it. Scott is a reluctant career changer and so it takes him a while to see where his professional future lies. When he does and goes for it, it works out.
