I know that you know what that means. It is EXACTLY how I feel today. WTF. As in WTF am I doing? Those of us who are brave enough to start our own businesses feel this on a regular basis. That sinking feeling like you haven’t done enough, reached out enough, applied yourself enough. What exactly is ENOUGH?

Enough currently for me is an account or two that help “keep bologna on the table” as an old boss of mine once said. I am not blowing the doors off anything, nor am I giving Doner or JWT a run for their money, but that is okay…its by design. So, why then, do I hit these spots of insecurity? I am trying to build a life OUTSIDE of my previous profession. As one who (in my mind) was so closely defined by that role, its hard to shake.

It manifests itself in unhealthy ways. Today I snarked at a friend who posted something online about small agencies. Its the second time in a couple weeks she has done that and left me out of the discussion. I replied with a ummm.ok…then she replied with a tag and said, “better”? I felt childish, because my response WAS childish. Either way, it was only my ego getting in the way. And, as a media professional, that was completely natural. 😉
