Time To Give Back

Light in the depth of your darkness thumbnailTime To Give Back


Who do you know whose business  is still struggling from the aftereffects of Hurricane Sandy or any other natural disaster?  Do you know a good person and a good businessperson who has had a series of misfortunes hit them that have been out of their control?  I know what this is like…  I have survived Hurricane Sandy, a series of immediate family members with major hospitalizations and life-threatening diseases.  In the middle of it, I had loved ones telling me to give up my business…  I thought about it and at the time it may have sounded nuts to them, but I said, I went through all of this… I am not giving up my dream too.  There were time (even quite recently) that I operated with no reserve, had to “rob Peter to pay Paul”.  In the midst of this, a very successful friend of mine reached out to me and told me, that almost everyone, who is successful, went through similar times.  Although he and his brothers sold their business to a very large company for millions… he told me of the time when he did not know how he was going to pay his bills.  When my computer was dying, he offered to lend me the money to buy a new one…   Additionally, when Sandy hit my home, and it was surrounded by the yellow police tape for six weeks, my sister took me in, she also lent me some money to keep me afloat…  Sometimes in the depth of our darkness… a ray of light shines through on us…

We are only eighteen days into January, and Accelerated Advertising is on track to have its best January ever…  Is this because  we have been working and marketing very hard?  Yes, without that no business grows.  Is it because, we have a good reputation and skill set?  Yes, again.  However, when we are facing very tough times we remember how bad luck and things out of our control contribute and we remember how amazing it is when out of nowhere someone offers a helping hand.  It is just as important to remember and be thankful for the good times…  Right now fortune is shining on us, and it is time to give back.
