I don’t often wander into the more insubstantial subjects of the philosophy of success or the intangible aspects of running a business. There are plenty of motivational marketing gurus who can tell you to “stay the course,” “follow your bliss,” or to “engage your passion.” I have enough trouble trying to figure out how many times a week I should blog or if my last invoice will be paid soon enough to prevent another NSF bank charge. I don’t really feel like I have the authority to pontificate on how success will flow from positive thinking or propose sure fire plans to make money while sitting on the beach. I am just like all of you, trying to figure out how to make it through the next day and to make a living doing something I like. I do however work through problems and issues in my blog. It may not seem like it but if I’m trying to figure out how to optimize a web page I write a blog about it and my current frustrations bring me to the subject of today’s blog on working through the rough spots.
