When we started LBD Magazine we had to have a lot of faith. A printed magazine is NOT cheap! We had to have faith in our sales team to sell enough ads to make sure we could print the magazine. We had to have faith in our writers that they would submit articles on time. We had to have faith in the skills of our editors. We had to have faith that there was even a community that needed what we were looking to create.
Faith doesn’t come easy. There have been times when we thought we had to shut the magazine down. There were other times that we had issues with the venue and might have not been able to have our launch event. We had issues with the printers and almost didn’t get magazines in time for a launch event. There have been times when all of our staff have wanted to throw in the towel.
For us, it comes down to remembering the impact we are making with the magazine. Remembering the vision. Remembering why we started the magazine in the first place.
Faith as an entrepreneur can be hard. Our vision with Life By Design Magazine is to give people the information AND the inspiration they need to not get frustrated with business. Faith is on the inspiration side. But all inspiration needs how-to’s to make the applicable.
Our goal with this edition is to inspire you to have faith in yourself and your business, especially in the tough times. We hope that this edition inspires you to keep the faith, no matter how tough it gets. One of the favorite quotes that is associated with faith is this, “If you’re going through hell, don’t stop.” Keep the faith, keep fighting.
Thank you to all of the writers of this amazing edition. Thank you to our editors and staff. Thank you to our cover. And thank you to all of our readers and supporters. This wouldn’t be possible without everyone involved. You all inspire us to keep the faith, we hope to inspire you to keep the faith as well!
