We answer a few questions today on the theme of focus. Building a business is hard work, plain and simple; you’re not lazy for acknowledging that… and even being overwhelmed by it. The right thing to focus on right now is whatever has the biggest impact on your bottom line. That might mean leaving products and teaching alone while you focus on getting client work.
