3 Ways to Overcome Business Obstacles
As a business owner, you're going to run into obstacles. Even when you have systems and processes in place and you think nothing can go wrong, you cannot avoid obstacles. They're a normal part of running a business. So what are you going to do?  In today's episode, I discuss three ways to overcome any business obstacle and win every time. We encountered business obstacles, especially in 2020. At some point, we even faced an obstacle posed by the wealthiest man on earth! But instead of closing down, as other businesses did, we made a lot of money and acquired an asset that is now worth millions of dollars. You must hear this story because it shows how you can turn an obstacle around and win big time. Of course, it helps that we have The SMART Blueprint, so we are ready for challenges. So, let's dive into this episode of SMART Businesses Do THIS! This is part 3 of a 3 part presentation I taught my students. Don’t miss out. "If you prepare for trouble when you first see it coming, you can get ahead of it and make sure it's just like a blip in the water." - Adam Lyons In This Episode: - Many people react this way when they encounter an obstacle. If this is you, don't start a business. Here's why I say that… - If this is how you react to an obstacle, then there's something you absolutely must do. - The third option is what we have been doing, which has worked for us, especially during the lockdown when many businesses closed. As a result, we've grown our business tremendously despite major obstacles. We even won against a massive threat from Elon Musk!
