Something I've noticed is the need to post revenue often here and in other places. But giving this some more thought, is it really necessary? I totally understand the excitement, the pat on the back, the vindication of the struggle, and now to say "I've made it" and the hard work finally paying off.
But I often think about the other side. The side of folks who are not making it, or are still struggling to achieve $1. Do these revenue posts contribute anything to them? Is it received in a positive way, or does it reinforce the constant failure when we are not hitting certain revenue numbers? I'm not trying to take anything away from folks who are doing well, in fact, the opposite, kudos to you and your success.
But I think from a mental health standpoint, posting these types of posts can be construed in a negative light. They could reinforce negative thoughts or outcomes like "my business isn't good enough, or I'm not good enough", etc. Is it just me? Does anyone else have these thoughts/feelings? How can we include value rather than just I crossed this revenue number this month?
