Steve recommends the following next steps:
Marketing means that you must constantly be creating new content usually. That puts pressure on the person to be aware of what's happening in the marketplace and figuring out how to reach that audience in different ways. Being creating means coming up with new ideas that fit different themes or audiences. The need to constantly be innovative can be challenging, yet there's several ways to overcome that (getting good sleep, meditating, allowing quiet thinking time, spreading yourself into multiple areas of focus to be available wherever the opportunity presents itself). The good news is that marketing has lots of different focus areas; such as writing content (letters or building websites), being a designer where you're building images, and building messages across various social media platforms.
Marketing can mean appealing to very niche and quickly changing tastes. You have to be adaptive. Another aspect of marketing that many find challenging are some of the ethical concerns. There is a lot of behavioral psychology involved in modern marketing, almost to the point of taking control away from the consumer by habitualizing consumption of their product. Each person has to make up their own mind about what they think is ok as far as these topics are concerned.
The hardest and most rewarding thing about being in marketing is that it is a field where things constantly change. It moves and evolves quickly which is both exciting and challenging. It provides practitioners with the opportunity to continue to learn, grow and evolve.
