Communicators, what advice would you give to your younger self?

This Fast Company roundup of advice from tech entrepreneurs to their younger selves and this great Truth for Our Daughters on Harvard Business Review's blog made me wonder about you, communicators: If you could sit your younger self down now, what advice would you dish out?

I hear all sorts of communicators say they wish they'd worked harder, or not so hard...learned to nail a presentation or speech sooner...started that freelance business before they had a mortgage and a family to support...or realized sooner that they just didn't like what they were doing before it became their specialty. But you don't need to confine yourself to the regrets column. Perhaps you learned to trust yourself early or got somewhere advantageous because you learned to love risk. Maybe you learned you loved doing the thing you dreaded most.

Share your insights--small and personal, big and magical and everything in between--in the comments, or on Google+, or the Facebook page for don't get caught, or to @dontgetcaught on Twitter, and I'll compile them for all to share. Advise away...
