Lessons Learned: Week of December 17, 2012

1. Turn stress into excitement! Stressed over a deadline or a large workload? Get excited! If you do work you love, you should be excited by these challenges, and by the fact that you have the opportunity to work towards these goals. Get excited about the deadline you have tomorrow, because you know you can produce something amazing in your time frame. (Again – so thankful for my mentor! He really helped change my mindset)

2. I never did this for the sake of business, but since it has helped develop business I feel like sharing. In reality, the lesson I want to share is to simply be a good person. If someone chooses a different product or service provider, or doesn’t have the budget to work with you, that is no reason to write them off. Offer advice, provide moral support, and keep the relationship moving forward. You never know what might happen a few months down the road.

When all else fails, shut down the computer, turn off the phone, and spend some quality time with family and friends, especially during the holidays.
