travel for vacation

No one can blame you for wanting to take a summer vacation from your business. The sun is shining, the days are longer, and kids are out of school. It’s the best time of year for a break, but you’re worried that will lead to a stunt in your business. No one can blame you […]

Work from the road– it sounds like a dream, but can more often become a nightmare. Spotty WiFi connections? Dragging yourself away from the beach to your computer? Working across multiple time zones? There’s a lot more to making it work from the road than Instagram would have us believe. If you’re someone who wants […]

Stay motivated

Sales keep your business going, but they are arguably not the most important part of your business. Whiles sales mean money in the bank in that moment, what really separates business in the long haul is customer retention. A successful business is about what you do before and after you make the sale. If you […]

Business Expenses

Running a business costs money. “You gotta spend money to make money,” the old adage goes. That’s why our businesses  have operating expenses and budgets. It’s the money that keeps the ship running, and makes sure that everyone gets paid. But maintaining control of your business operating expenses can be easier said than done. Business […]

That’s all well and good, as many of them come with a learning curve for entrepreneurs, and offer us a new way of looking at the world. One word to eliminate from your […]

Your business might move in cycles. You might have a busy season where there is no sleep, and you might find yourself in a season where business is slow. At first glance, that can be stressful. Where is the money going to come from? Is this the end of your business? Do your products or […]

product news

Thinking of bringing a new product to your audience? Being in a position where your business is ready to grow is wonderful, and it means that you’re on the right track. A new product just might be the thing to add more profit and to serve more people. Done incorrectly though, a new product can […]

Focus, being present or living in the moment. Chance are you’ve heard some version of this in the last few days. Being present has become a buzzy topic, one that everyone from lifestyle gurus to researchers. Headlines tell us over and over again that our attention spans are getting worse- but then some tell us […]

You’ve been in business for awhile and things are going well. But  you’ve realized something: you want to start talking to a new audience. You want to learn how to pivot your business message to a new audience, and you’re not sure where to start. This is common for businesses. When we first start out […]

read more books

I’ll say it: lots of business books are a waste of time. They spend too much time of fluff and not enough time giving you practical advice. I don’t need to hear ‘you need to build something remarkable’ for 5 chapters (looking at you Seth Godin). I need to hear that in one chapter, and […]
