Survival isn’t a solo act.

Face it. If you own your own business, you’re type A. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be the success you are.

Or are you? Are you really where you need to be in the marketplace? Will you still be standing when this economic downturn has passed? Is your business “top of mind” or an invisible entity? Are you maximizing your potential, or minimizing your profit? Do your customers refer you as a necessary partner, or a necessary evil?

And do you still cling to the notion you can do it all and keep moving forward?
