How do you guys deal with burnout? This job was amazing when I started and the pay is good, but I feel like I’m being ground down a little more every day.

What’s causing you to burn out ? From personal experience I have a sales job very high volume/high stress and I found myself dealing with burnout when I first started. As I pushed thru some of my biggest weeks were when I felt the worst. It made me quickly realize burnout is a state of mind- your a human being that doesn’t stop being. Your not a rocket running on fuel. What I burnout to be a signal of a lack of motivation. I recommend setting bigger goals to pursue and refilling your tank of motivation DAILY. I view motivation as a battery I need to recharge everyday

For me it’s just the massive volume of calls with 0 results. Ever since July my connect rate crashed through the earths core and I went from 5-10 dms a day to 1 or maybe 2 if I’m lucky. It’s demotivating knowing 9 hours of work will net me 1 opportunity if I’m on my A game.

Any thoughts on why your connection rate dropped?

I’m 30 years old and have been running my own (small) agency over the past two years, working with local businesses. I’ve got a solid book of client and spec work, with creative ad copy.

Now I’m looking to work at an ad agency as a copywriter. Honest question: is it a reach to pursue that? And, if it isn’t a reach, do I apply for entry-level?
