This week's quote is less about copywriting, and more about working for yourself. Sometimes being self-employed comes with lots of stresses, and, dare I say it, defeats.
Even when you have stuck to your commitments and kept your integrity, you can still come across dips in the road, illnesses that prevent you from working and earning money, projects that don't work out, invoices that aren't paid, and circumstances you couldn't have seen coming - even with clients you have good relationships with.
It can be really demoralising at times, especially if you take pride in your professionalism just as much as your work. That's why I thought this quote was a good reminder that no small business or self-employed person should remain defeated.
I try to look at these situations as learning curves, and know that a bigger, stronger and more professional business (and person) will be born out of them.
Like everything in life, little tests are there to challenge us. And it's no different in the business world.
Having said that, I'm glad it's Friday and I can enjoy a worry-free couple of days after this week! :)
