This week’s episode feels like the start to something new. I had a listener send in a question about business growth; I felt compelled to address it through the podcast because it was a great question!

In light of this question, I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to open up a Q&A series! If you have a question, send it in and I’ll answer one each month! I’ve added a tab to my website called “Ask L” – all you need to do is go there and fill out the form, then tune in and turn it up each week to see if your question gets answered!

But this week, we’re focusing on Josephine.

“Hey Lauren,

I hope this email finds you well. I’ve been listening to your podcast for some time now and although I’m unsure if you answer these types of questions, I thought I’d give it a shot. 

I’ve been a small business owner for 4 years but am having trouble getting consistent with my income and expanding my team. There are so many days I want to quit, because it would just be easier. 

Maybe I should expand upon this

Last year I  got to the point where I could hire an assistant to take over some of my duties to free me to focus on my business. It lasted about 4 months, before I let her go because it wasn’t working out. I’m now back to doing everything alone and am so overwhelmed. Many times, my income doesn’t match my effort. 

It’s so defeating, what am I doing wrong?

Can you provide guidance?

Hopeful in New Mexico,
