“If you’re going down the street and you’re going the wrong way, remember – God permits U-turns.” ~ Suze Orman

She is referring to financial decisions and you can take this quote and apply it however it fits in your life. I’m not going to go too deep into that…

In my 19+ years in business, it hasn’t always been rosy. There have been really great highs and very difficult lows. 

I’ve forgotten to pay attention to certain parts and it almost died…like my houseplant in the picture.

Shine a bunch of light on it.
Feed it.
Water it.
I’m still surprised it grows back.

(I know, reaching on that one – but you get it, right?)  Boy, have I had to swallow my pride more than once! 

“You must have the courage to step up or no one will listen, Kelly.” 

Making tough business decisions sucks when you don’t have a helpful shoulder to lean on.

Big questions.
Is what I’m doing working?
Is it time to make a U-turn or stay the course?

I’ve completely reworked my signature ParentPreneur program… It wasn’t easy. It sucked. Some things you simply have to let go and with the help of mentors, clients, student feedback and people I respect greatly, it now takes on a life of its own. At the end of the day, I saw there were things missing. Problems that I knew I could solve.

Now it’s better than ever. Clients seeing results. Students asking for more. 

U-turn…left turn…whatever…it doesn’t have to mean the end of your business, either.

Do you have crap that’s not working? I can help.
