"If you decide to run the ball, just count on fumbling and getting the shit knocked out of you a lot,
but never forget how much fun it is just to run the ball! "
I missed "Marketing Monday" yesterday. So, welcome to Marketing Tuesday...
The quote above was just too good not to share. There are too many of you have taken a few hits and forgotten how much fun it is to run the ball! The "ball" is your business and while it has days loaded with stress, you're still running your own company and getting closer to living your dream...or maybe you're already there.
However, if you're feeling a little weary now and then, it's sure something I can relate to. Best example is that it's well after midnight and I just couldn't sleep. So, I got up and started working. It's not something I recommend, but there are days in every business when you just can't let go.
So, it seems like the perfect time to focus on things you can do to make sure you never forget how much fun it is to "run the ball" and avoid burning out...
You're part of an amazing industry, but it's important to remember you're not alone. Everybody has tough days, challenges that seem impossible to resolve and moments where we just question the path we've chosen. The key is to recognize when you're on the edge and utilize all those resources and friends out there who are willing to help.
