Back in the day when foursquare was a recess game played in elementary school, I remember there would be times where I didn’t want to play anymore. The kids were merciless. A few times I left the game after having the wind knocked out of me. Sad face enables and a pieces of my pride scattered across the ground, I would scan the recess field confused on what exactly to do next.
The answer was to get back in the game.
No matter if you are spending eight hours a day in a cubicle or spending twelve hours a day a slave to bringing your own idea to life, you have had moments where you want to take your ball and go home. “Done, that’s it. No more” you think. I get it, I have been there.
My online marketing career didn’t start out smooth. It started a bit like learning to drive an old manual car, rough starts with plenty of backseat drivers. Now, I drive a speedy little 6 speed manual car and I have found experts to teach me how to drive. The same has happened with my career, finding mentors, reading and learning from experts has been essential.
The lesson to be learned is that it is rough, you get the wind knocked out of you and the answer is to always get back in the game.
