So here I am, sitting on the computer finishing up some work and all dressed up ready to go out and celebrate the 3 year anniversary with the girlfriend. It really got me thinking about how important a support system is since this day also pretty much marks my first 3 years in the IM industry. Being an entrepreneur is hard. There are highs, and there are lows. Some days you are super excited to wake up and get to work, and other days you just want to sleep that extra hour, or 2, maybe three XD. The goal is to minimize these days so you can be as productive with your time as possible. This is where having some sort of outside support is essential. You will never succeed if you yourself do not have a drive. Plain and simple. Sometimes your drive falters though and this is where these people come in. I have met so many great people from around the entire world during my IM "career" and become friends with a lot of you. I am not really sure why I am writing this post but I guess the point is to give back. Support comes in so many different ways and when I first started, there were a few of you who actually took the time to answer my questions and give me solid advice. We have all been there. Give back to people, encourage them, do not lead them astray. Is 50 dollars worth it? How about 100? How many times have you turned away a client because you did not want to spam the shit out of their site? Be good to people, give back, and keep going.
