YOU WILL NEVER AMOUNT TO ANYTHING ONCE YOU LEAVE THIS JOB
These were the parting words of my boss back from my 9 to 5. I left the job to start my own marketing agency.
For a long time after that a part of me kept believing it.
Every misstep, every failure, every client lost...that voice kept blaring off in my head.
'Maybe I shouldn't have left my job' the thought used to occur to me.
In October 2019, I even got the opportunity to work in a leading marketing agency. But I refused.
And I am glad I did.
Yesterday, I got the opportunity to speak a nationwide summit with some of the best marketing agencies in India. We were, in fact, the only ecomm marketing agency there.
Looking at my brand's logo [The one with the B] along with those biggies made me so happy.
I took a screenshot and sent it a text to my former boss
'You were wrong' He didn't reply. What did I learn from this?
- A good leader always allows his/her employees to grow. Don't crush their dreams because of your insecurities.
- Be resilient in hard times. Such moments make the journey worth it!
Never let anyone tell you your worth.
