Letting go: How and What to Trim to Keep Your Business Lean and Focused

Letting go: How and What to Trim to Keep Your Business Lean and Focused

The opportunity for overwhelm is everywhere for many small business owners. It’s time to take a stand.

Each and every single one of us has said “Yes” way too often for our own good. Not only have we taken on the role of bearded lady, but we’re also the contortionist, the fire-breather, and the ringleader all in one. Some days, we’re even the guy holding the broom behind the elephant. That said, all of those roles are totally useful some of the time, but taking on too much can lead to ruin, burned tents, and a bad show for all involved.

This month’s carnival will make the juggler want to go stand out in the cold; multitaskers – you’re on report!
