In the 2000s and early 2010s, Sony’s cameras were TERRIBLE.

Rank #12: The photography community is TOXIC
The photography community is, on the whole, the most antagonistic, abusive, and destructive (on the Internet). OK, most people in the community are wonderful - but a small number of the community are making it a really toxic environment. We talk about the different types of toxicity we encounter, with the hope that identifying it will make it easier to handle. We talk about why people might be toxic, including mental illness and poor social skills. We also talk about how to make sure you're a supportive member of the community.

Rank #14: 5 steps to YOUR SUCCESS (start TODAY)
We talk about 5 steps to success that we just totally made up based on our own life experiences, so take it for what it's worth.
1: Define *your* success. What specific accomplishments will make you happy? Where do you want to be in life, for money, lifestyle, relationships, and leisure time? Which of those are you willing to give up?
2: Know yourself. Evaluate your own strengths and weaknesses; we all have a few.
3: Build a team. Surround yourself with people who complement your skills. If you suck at something, find people who are good at that, and trust them to help you.
4: Make a 5-year plan. Know where you want to be in 5 years. Then, make smaller steps at 1-year, 6-months, 1 month, and TODAY. Yes, if you're going to be successful, it starts today. What are you going to do RIGHT NOW?
5: Re-evaluate and reset. One thing we can promise is that your plans won't go exactly as you hope. The world will change without your permission. Your team will fail you. You'll fail yourself. That's OK; you roll with those punches. It's OK to change your plan at any point.
If you feel like you've already found some success, congrats! We'd love to hear your success story in the comments (including challenges that you ran into along the way).
