- Why 7 Figures and scaling aren’t for everyone and what to do if these aren’t best for your business
- How to make sure we don’t throw out the business with the bathwater when we try too hard to not be like someone else
- Why there is no one way to succeed but there is one way to fail
- Why so many people get stuck in the “friend zone” with potential clients and referral partners and the mental switch you need to flip to stop that process
