When is a client, a client?
I am seeing and hearing a lot of noise at present around late payments from clients and issues collecting aged debt.

Why are there no sales this month?
This is a common question I get asked by small business owners, either questioning their own performance or that of their sales team.

“Why is my business not growing?”
I get asked this question many times by small business owners who have their head in their hands and are at their wits end in terms of feeling overwhelmed, being trapped and they have lost their mojo.
