Is it Possible to Find a Single Word That Can Save Your Business?
But when it comes to the one single guidepost that can save your business or cripple it, I always come back to the same word: FLEXIBILITY.

If you want to make sure you build FLEXIBILITY into your company’s DNA, these 7 steps will ensure it’s deeply embedded into your decision-making process … and give you the greatest possible chance to overcome uncertainty and build a successful business.
