You've gotten nowhere except knowing that you have a problem.
You've been talking about this sticky issue for months now! When is your team going to decide to do something about it?
Sound familiar? This is a common experience for so many business owners.
We beat problems to death and still are no closer to creating what we want to see in the business. Seldom do we talk about what we really want to see and how we can make that the new reality!

I get it...That’s me!
We see every crack and fissure in every process (and if we’re not careful with every person too!)
Being the fast-acting, critical, problem-solver might have served you up to a point in your profession, but at what cost?
Especially as you shift from doing the work and actually creating that bigger and brighter future for yourself, your family, and your team.
Sure, you’re going to have to solve a lot of problems as you build your dream. But don’t let it become an addiction.
