Building your business can be hard. You have to decide up front that some discomfort and even pain is worth what you’re trying to build. Endurance is key.
Does your writing business slow down in the summer? If you’re nodding yes you’re not alone. But as summer winds down, it’s time to wind your business back up!
Sometimes it’s better to set big, lofty goals and to go as far as you can toward achieving them than it is to set safe, pedestrian goals that are easy to accomplish.
If you’re working toward a goal and aren’t seeing the results you want, perhaps you’re making things more complicated than they need to be. When you simplify your approach, it’s easier to take action… and that means you get results.
