Five Fantastic Lessons I Learned from Business Failure.

Very recently, a business of mine failed, just 1 month after the grand opening. I wish I could tell you this was a first for me, but it wasn’t my first business failure.

Why I Love Coworking

Coworking, business inspiration, team building, business growth

I have three offices. Two of them are located inside coworking spaces. In order to share what I love about coworking, let’s take an imaginary journey through a typical day looks at one of my offices.  9:00 am (ish) I roll into the office around nine-ish.

Last week, I chopped off my hair. 

How I made more money in my company by cutting my hair
