What kind of relationship do you have with your business?
Are you ride-or-die BFFs? Or is your business a mean, demanding boss that makes you dread going to work?
Like any relationship that we are in, the relationship that we have with our business can be complex and they take understanding, consideration, and work.
This month, we've been talking about the various ways that business owners get in their own way, the different ways this shows up, and some practical strategies to avoid making these mistakes over and over.
If you're someone who gets in your own way by resisting systems, check out the first episode in the series with Michelle Warner about how process can be a competitive advantage.
If you're someone who gets in your own way by putting ALL the things on your to-do list until you're ready to crash, the episode with Tonya Dalton is a great one for you.
If you are, well, pretty much anyone who deals with money (hint: that's all of you) go listen to last weeks episode with Agnes Kowalski about money mindset.
And if you're someone who struggles with the need to control everything or if you get stuck in perfectionism or the need to do things the "right" way, today's episode is for you.
