Despite the current challenges everyone is facing, we all have a choice in how we respond. This may be a good time to reflect upon what opportunities there are for you regarding stepping up, investing in yourself or changing direction in your business or career.
For many business owners these are challenging times due to the Covid-19 virus. Today Karen and Tessa talk about how more businesses are going online and what this means for both online and offline businesses.

In this episode Karen & Tessa discuss how outsourcing ultimately comes down to trust and letting go. However to maintain responsibility and accountability a strong communication flow is required. We also talk about how outsourcing doesn't just have to be for your work either.
Today we discuss the difference of having someone support you on a project that you own versus one that you are supporting someone else with.
