The price of that new life you want is your current, comfortable life. Growth is uncomfortable.

Don’t expect growth to be easy. That’s a recipe for disappointment. Prepare for a long journey on a bumpy road. Be ready for sleepless nights and disappointments. Expect to feel uncomfortable at times. But don’t forget to stop along the way to celebrate how far you’ve come.

There’s no shame in saying “I don’t know.” Just keep it real and keep learning.

Growth is uncomfortable... But it’s worth it.

Being a good marketer doesn’t mean you’ll be good at sales — or vice versa. They’re different skill sets. That said... both marketers and salespeople can up their game faster by learning more about each other’s craft.

Buying a new pair of Nikes won’t magically make you a better athlete. Just like buying an online course won’t make you a better marketer. Wanna up your game? You need to put in the work.

15

Do hard things. Even you don’t win, you grow. So you still kinda win.
