Business transitions due to physical or mental limitations caused by untoward incidents are a painful reality. Most business owners find that the only viable solution once this happens to them is that they have to close shop and go out of business which doesn’t always have to be the case. You can survive and have a thriving business, given that you seek the help you need to go through this transition smoothly. 

In this podcast episode, the second part of the series, Adapting to Forced Change, Genevieve and I talk about what a business transition looks like when forced off the tools as a business owner. We discuss the importance of accountability and how having someone who can help you get another perspective on your dilemma is crucial. Gen also shares a case study that will encourage you to push through when you go through unfortunate circumstances like accidents or illnesses.

I have been listening to the pod casts for a few months now, I can't get enough of all the awesome content that you guys provide. Especially when you guys deliver it from a trade perspective which helps out a lot. Keep up the good work and hopefully one day I can afford one of the trade training trips.
