A Fork in the Road: Do You Grow or Do You Cut Back?
Show Notes

Here is another episode of Female emPOWERED! Let me share with you today about business owners getting to a point where they hit a fork in the road. When you are at that point, the question you need to ask yourself is if you want to grow or cut back.

A Fact That You Need To Be Ready For

This is a fact, and many business owners hit this point as they are trying to grow their business. It is a real decision that people have to make, and know that there is no right or wrong decision. It all depends on what you want to happen once you hit that fork in your road. What is more important is you evaluate the pros and cons of your decision stemming from this circumstance.

Let me walk you through a scenario that might resonate with you, and hope that this episode will help you when the time comes you need to make a decision.
