What Economic Cycles Do to Entrepreneurs
An economic cycle is the fluctuation of the economy between periods of expansion, or growth, and contraction, or downturn. These fluctuations can have either devastating or positive effects on entrepreneurs.
My husband Greg, a former R.I.A., joins me with seven basic principles to weather economic cycles. My hope is that these steps will help entrepreneurs maneuver and even thrive through some of the changes based on changes in the economy.
When Your Why has been Stolen and You're Left Without Purpose
Most projects and businesses need a strong why to be successful, but when change or disaster hits, many are left without purpose. This can feel like your why has actually been stolen!
