Motivation is sometimes hard to come by, but it's essential to keeping forward momentum in your career.

If anyone knows this, it's online marketing strategist Tommy Walker, who went from being fired over pair of pants 3 years ago to writing a magnum-opus guest post "106 Excuses That Prevent You From Ever Being Great" on Chris Brogan's web site. Brogan, known for almost never accepting guest posts, took a chance on Walker's piece, and in the process, threw any editorial guidelines he might have had out the window, posting all 7,000+ words of it.

The response the post received so far has been phenomenal, with 329 retweets and 1,260 likes on Facebook as this is being written.

We'll talk to Walker about his journey from fired cell phone salesman to successful online marketing strategist and guest blogger, and get tips for knocking down excuses and staying motivated.
