Let’s Talk about Money And Let’s Do It In an Honest Way

Forget about defining your "why" or leaving an impact, the real measure of success is how much money your small business is making.

Let's Talk about Money! And Let's Do It In an Honest Way!

Forget about defining your “why” or leaving an impact, the real measure of success is how much money your small business is making. Whoa! Did I just say that!?!

Though making a difference is a noble goal, let’s get real about money! “Why’s” have a place, but it’s okay if the money in the bank is your motivation. It’s okay to have the hard work you’re putting forth make a difference to you and your family. And it’s okay if your short and long-term goals for your small business benefit you FIRST!
