Creating The Great News community magazine is a daunting task. There is the magazine to create (14 subjects covered and rising), the articles to write, the web site to maintain, the marketing to do, oh the marketing, what a head-scratching headache that is, then there is the day to day stuff that makes every second feel like a minute, and every minute, an hour...
It's easy to become overwhelmed by it all and wonder what the hell you are doing, and for what. My advice is to Stop and Smell the Roses - not literally, unless smelling roses is your thing - but stop what you're doing, step away from your computer (or your tool of choice) and take time to think about the WHY!
Think about your goals, about your ambitions, about what you wish to accomplish, then and only then can you justify all the hard work.
I struggle each and every day, not to fill my time, but because I want to run the biggest and best community magazine I can create.
I want people to look at what I've created, and think, damn , if one man can create all this, on his own, with no experience, or finance, then so can I achieve my dreams.
So, if you're chasing your dreams, and 'stuff' is making you question you dreams, Stop and Smell the Roses, reconnect with your WHY!
