When the going gets tough, you might find yourself wanting to throw in the towel. You lose a client, you worry about raising your prices when there’s inflation, you just don’t know if you can keep going. But adaptability can keep you afloat.
In today’s episode, I’m sharing what to do when things feel hard or constrictive in your business. The answer is not to quit; it’s to be adaptable. Scarcity is very real, but so is the flip side which is opportunity—whether it’s adjusting a retainer with a current client, or being open to new clients and situations that are in alignment.
When the going gets tough, a little flexibility goes a long way.
