2.Be prepared to be dragged.
3. Stay true to yourself.
Stay true to yourself. If it’s inappropriate thing you like to talk about, talk about them. People can drag you for all you care. But if the dragging gets out of hand, apologize or drag them back (in your mind please)
4.Don’t do drugs.

You have to always be aware of what’s on the trend table, that’s the only way to keep your work rate impeccable. Why do you think people say ‘’the Devil works hard, but Zikoko works harder’’?
