Whether you work at a creative agency or not, you still have to come to work prepared to solve problems.
The thing about working at a marketing or advertising agency in particular is,
You never know what you’ll be asked to do.
It’s both the beauty and the curse of working in a creative field.
But if you can start each day
Writing to your prospects
And potential future employers
You will be far more prepared
To go into the office
You’ll never be stuck in a meeting
At a loss for words.
You’ll come up with ideas
On the spot.
And as an unexpected bonus
You might have to get used to being
The funniest person in the room.
P.S. if you’re working remotely, writing to your email list keeps you especially productive. As fellow daily emailer Travis Jones likes to say, “if you start the day as a writer, you’re a writer all day.”
