A little over a month ago, we implemented bi-weekly "town hall" style meetings at AdVision. Although we often attend social events together or meet up for happy hour beers, we’ve never had a platform for everyone to candidly and publicly speak their minds on what they feel is working in the agency, what’s not, and how we can improve as an organization. With a few of these sessions now under our belts, my only regret is not starting these meetings sooner. The feedback we’re receiving from the team is truly amazing, and I’m convinced these meetings are going to make us a more tight-knit, effective team going forward.
Heartbreak, whether it be in love or in business, is brutal. There’s no way around it. Sometimes all of the hard work that you put into a marketing campaign or closing a big deal can end up an epic failure. While heartbreak can be difficult to stomach, you will most often come away from it with strength and resiliency - ideal traits for success in business. How you respond to failure will ultimately determine your success moving forward.
