What If The Work Runs Out?

 I can guarantee that you and all other business owners have had these thoughts.  

"What if I spend the money to grow my business and the work drops off?" 

"Maybe being busy is just a phase?" 

"What if I hire a new guy and I can't give him enough work." 


It's impossible to own a business without having some level of fear and uncertainty.  

But you need to learn to not let these feelings consume you. 

I want you to think about it this way.  

Asking the question, "what if?' is powerful. 

But instead of asking yourself, "What if the work runs out?"  

Ask yourself... 

"What if I don't grow?" 

"What amount of money am I leaving on the table?" 

"What are the consequences of me giving into fear?" 


  • Learn how to avoid rollercoaster income
  • Take accountability for your businesses growth and success
  • Learn to have confidence in your abilities as a business owner
  • Understand techniques to stay ahead of the competition
