Have you ever felt like giving up on business?


But you hear your parental figure in the back of your head saying …


I didn’t raise a … [insert substitute word] … quitter!


Perhaps you're not ready to give up, but you're feeling disheartened by the slow progress in your business. Remember, every step forward is a step closer to your goals.


Strides to replace the income you miss from Corporate.


Strides to replenish your bank account from the $10,000 you pulled to bootstrap your business when you first started.

Perhaps it's time to add pivoting to your business planning techniques.

Why 6-figures instead of 7-figures?


So, before you define arbitrary goals, consider what you fully need to meet your personal and business bills.

What are your revenue, payroll, and profitability goals by dollar amount with your personal and business NEEDS in mind?
