There are businesses that would be a good fit for you. They’d fit right into the grooves of your personality, sense of humor, language and interests.
This business would be a dream for you to run. You’d wake up energized, ready to serve an audience you care with answers to questions that matter.
This is the business we dream of. But there are other scenarios. Some of us are in businesses that chafe. They rub and stick and bunch and burn and disappoint.
These businesses lead us eventually to a heavy decision: do I stick with it or move on to something else? Do I keep building on everything I’ve created thus far, or cut my losses and build something that fits me better?
How can you find out if your business is a good fit or not? And what could you do with that info?
These are the questions we tackle in this episode of The Fizzle Show. You won’t want to miss it, especially the part where Corbett shares his business-fit equation. Enjoy!
