Ask Mike Avitabile to what he owes his success in the entertainment industry and he’ll tell you it’s partly due to being in the right place at the right time.
But you don’t become a novelist and director of content operations at Sony Network Entertainment by luck alone. Yes, Avitabile admits, it also had a lot to do with hard work, too.
“Some of it is timing and to some extent good luck, but I always worked hard when I saw an opportunity I wanted,” he says. “It’s the best thing you can do to put yourself in the position you want to be in.”
