Things I’ve Learned Working in Marketing (so far): An Update

Back in September of 2018, I wrote this post about what I’ve learned working in Marketing. Now I’m back with a second round of what I’ve learned this past year.

  1. Marketing and Advertising is ever-evolving. What worked yesterday, probably won’t work today.
  2. Surround yourself with smart people. It pays off.
  3. There is no such thing as being too prepared.
  4. It’s important to try things you’ve never done before.
  5. Take care of yourself. Mentally. Physically. Emotionally.
  6. The worst thing you can do is nothing. Sitting on it won’t make it any better. Make a decision and deal with the consequences.
  7. Relationships aren’t built through email. Pick up the phone.
  8. Don’t let a nasty email, bad result or missed email eat you alive. Shake it off and promise yourself you’ll do better next time.
  9. Sometimes you’re not as good as you think you are.
  10. There’s always more to learn.
