Burnout Happens, But Help Is On The Way

Business Burnout

Sooner or later you’ll second-guess your business.  You’ll criticize what you’re doing and how you’re going about it.  You’ll get mad at customers, discouraged by data, overwhelmed by accounting, screwed by employees, and sick and tired of the daily monotony.

But then, something magical will happen.

A customer sends you a handwritten thank you card.  A product update revitalizes you.  A new ad performs swimmingly well.  A contractor goes above and beyond.  Whatever it is.  Something comes along and talks you off the ledge – and reminds you how incredible it is to be a millionaire in the making.

Until that help arrives, though, remind yourself that storms are temporary.  Eventually, the sun will come back out.  And if you’re lucky, you may even see a rainbow.  Hang in there, homie.

Cory Johnson: likes bumping #OnRepeat through the Bang & Olufsen sound system in his naturally aspirated V10; post-workout pumps; curvy women; Will Ferrell; Dave Chappelle; and your mom’s potato salad. He hates awkward handshakes. But who cares? Let’s talk about you.
