Agency Life

Working in a marketing agency is much like being on a sports team. Sometime you win; sometime you lose. You look to sign emerging and proven talent; some work out, some don’t. You work within a salary cap but unlike most North American sports leagues, success bolsters your cap and provides avenues of growth.

But the biggest parallel with sports teams is that when you work in an agency, you should never let the highs (of winning) let you get too excited and you should never let the lows get you too down.

There’s always another chance to prove yourself around the corner; always another battle to fight. Savour the victories, even the small ones. Learn from the losses, especially the big ones. But stay on an even keel.
