You’ll be in business a long time.
People you spoke to months or years ago will come back around to do business with or refer you.
Past clients will re-hire you. Your reputation will precede you. You’ll have ups and downs.
So regardless of the particular situation you’re in or decisions you’re facing, keep the longterm perspective. Even when things are hard or emotions are high. Especially then.
Play the long game and you’ll be in this game a long time.
