Most business owners [Solopreneurs, Entrepreneurs] reach a boiling point – a point where they are totally overwhelmed and can’t take it anymore. They have a choice: bust through and find a way for the business to function without them as much, or scale back so they can keep it manageable. We want to hear your breakthrough stories.

What was the turning point that made you commit to creating a more self-sustaining, independent business, rather than keep so much on your plate?

Examples may be: death of a loved one, separation/divorce, a move, personal burnout; any other sink or swim moment.

And what tactics did you use to create it?

Examples may be: hiring staff, automating business systems, selling products in addition to services, changing your pricing structure; anything else that freed you (even just a little) from being so hands-on.


Contest begins:          Monday – 9/15/14

Contest ends:             Monday – 9/29/14 at 11:59pm PT.
