You Can Figure Anything Out for Your Business

Today’s Ask Me Anything starts with an experience yesterday that forced me to believe that we can figure out ANYTHING…if we want it bad enough.

So often we battle the temptation to believe that we have a set of insurmountable obstacles to face that others don't.  We look at the trials in our life and wonder why we were shafted with the short straw.

But I've come to believe that those who are destined for success simply take their straw (no matter what size) and make it work for their business.

In this episode of Ask Me Anything, I explain how/why this is the case…then get into answering LIVE questions.  Woohoo!
