Your business is growing! Yay! That's good news. Right? Usually, yes. But not always. Growing too fast is one of the main reasons small businesses fail. We can't sustain the product, or we bank on always being that busy. Then that business goes away and we can't stay afloat. So let's change our thinking. Slow growth is ok! Can be great! And one author has a radical idea - No Growth. There's no real right or wrong way - no matter what any business tells you. And we both have business coaches.

But the first thing we need to learn is that we can't keep holding onto a mistake just because we spent such a long time making it.

Social Media is everywhere right? And that's great! But it's not always good. Most social media experts will tell you to have two separate social media worlds - a personal and a business account.

Let me guess, you watch out for your workers, your friends, your kids, your SO. So who's watching out for you? For most women the answer is, "I'll get around to myself later". But the truth is, if you want to succeed in business or life, you need to learn how to put yourself first!

Who has never felt rejection? It's not a nice feeling, and we used to always feel bad after being rejected. But then we learned to embrace rejection!
