CONGRATULATIONS! YOU HAVE MADE IT TO THE END.
Whether you flipped through the pages, read every single page, or tasted only the bits that seemed appetising to you, the real work starts now.
Knowledge and ideas are only meaningful when they are brought into action. So do yourself a favour and flip back, and make note of what you found the most annoying. Usually, where there is friction, there is work to be done. Then, mark the things that most piqued your interest.
For each of the parts you have marked, both annoying and inspiring, write down the questions you have. For example:
“Who do I know that has intricate knowledge of the art market?”
“Is there a bread fund I could participate in?”
“Do my clients perceive me as a true professional?”
Don’t worry about answering them right now. Just write down all the questions that can help. Your next task will be to find a friend, a colleague, or a family member with whom you can discuss how to get some answers.
Also, take some time to go back to the prologue and reconsider your idea of success. Give yourself the option to already revise what you want, and complete these sentences:

The first step I can take is:

NOW GET OUT THERE, THE WORLD AWAITS!
