Whether you’re starting a business or you’ve been on your own entrepreneurial journal for over a decade like we have, we’ve got some lessons learned and tips for you in this episode!
When was the last time you set out to plant seeds for your business? No, not actual seeds, but tasks and to-do items that may not bear fruit for many months? This can seem difficult if you’re trying hard to generate revenue right now, but it’s an important way to shift your thinking to play the long-game with your biz.
