    If you want to get better: Read a ton of books, watch videos & tutorials. The internet is all you need.

    If you want to get ahead in your career: Get on Twitter of Dribbble or Behance and become friends with the small group of designers who have a big following. Learn from them, how they sell themselves, associate yourself with them and indirectly they will be your mentors

      While you can get by with resources on the Internet, there's nothing like having a design colleague in the same workspace as you who can share experiences, knowledge, and provide feedback to you.

        Exactly. I believe even though the internet resources are crazy good, they will never take into account the current scenario, the pressure on product teams or engineering teams, deadlines and much much more.

        But yes, wherever I am today, its only because of the internet so I can't thank the web enough.
