One of the reasons why I enjoy marketing is because it is a very challenging job. Not all problems are the same and a lot of times you must come up with innovative ways to overcome obstacles. After living and breathing the profession for years you come to learn a few tricks of the trade.
Very recently someone asked me for advice on what they should do to get into social media professionally. That question allowed me to reflect how I got into my career as a digital marketing professional as well as inspired me to write this article. Digital marketing is exploding and there are many of us out there. I’m here to share my experiences on how I got started but do note that it isn’t the only way to get started. There are many people in this space that have a different story with a different technique, but if you are dedicated enough you will find success your own way.
In business, have you ever heard of the saying that in order to succeed you need to have passion? What does passion even mean? How do you know if you have really discovered a passion or if it’s just a hobby in disguise? How do you decipher between a temporary obsession and a true passion? In my professional opinion, I believe in three things in regards to passion. The first thing I believe is that everyone has a passion. The second thing I believe is that everyone has a skill. The third and last thing I believe is that everyone has a choice.
