Don't panic!
There's always hope


If you fall within the "Dying" portion of the spectrum, do not despair!

Here's one tip to help you move from Dying to Surviving to Thriving: make a list of people who you can turn to for help. This list can (and should) include mentors, coaches, consultants, and advisors. Avoid going to them and "verbally vomiting" on them about your business.  Instead, be specific and see if they have any solutions or know anyone who can help. There's no need to try and do it alone, especially when there are many people willing to help. When you speak to these people, be optimistic and positive. No one likes a despondent conversation. But also be clear about the challenges you're facing, what you've already tried doing to solve the challenges, and some ideas you're considering for the future.

"I've attended a lot of seminars, read a lot of books, and I would highly recommend Blue Sky Business Consulting because of the accountability and the consistency. If you want to be a leader who takes it to the next step, this has got to be something you look at."
