Build your track record

Nobody trusts you without numbers backing your success.

Numbers like number of box office hits, number of products in your portfolio, number of awards, number of projects completed and recognition.

Nobody is even willing to hear you if you don't have a track record.  There are thousands of people with identical schools and resumes.  Why should anyone waste time on you and pay you higher?

Your friends are no different and they all need to see numbers.  If you are excited about anything then first build your track record and then approach someone.
