At the time of this post I'm in Facebook jail. It happens. Just when I'm FINALLY ready to use Facebook to do some advertising, they won't let me. Apparently I did something that was against their policies. What? Who knows? But it's super inconvenient because there's no one I can talk to who can help. If I want to advertise on Facebook I just have to wait for them to finish reviewing my account and give me permission to pay them my money.
Now... I can sit around and be upset about it while doing absolutely nothing. Which is what I've been doing for the better part of the last 7 days. Or, I can figure my way out of this situation. By that I mean find alternatives. If all I do is wait on the Meta powers that be, powers I have no control over and powers that care zero about my business needs, plans and goals –I could be waiting forever.
So the only option I have is to think outside of this box and move forward with plan B, C and D. So that is what I'm doing. It took me 7 wasted days to come to this conclusion, but the point is, I came to it. Don't be like me. If you have a problem and need a solution, think out of the box so you can keep the momentum going. It's amazing how easily we can get stuck in one spot when we don't allow ourselves to see solutions in the endless options that surround us.
