How to Make More Money

[22:49] When your business doesn’t grow as quickly as you would like often you are the bottleneck. I recommend listing all the things that you, for whatever reason, are struggling to execute on. Next, it is important to look at who you can get to help you get these things done, it could be a virtual assistant, a family member, a friend, a business coach or someone with specific skills to help you. Take the action to find people who can help you make more money!

Family First

[25:53] If something is wrong we need to act to fix the problems that will not go away. Also, proactively take the action of telling and showing our family how we feel. Don’t make the assumption that they know, make sure they know by taking appropriate action.
