Is your life going to plan?

The exposed brick, glass and aluminium riverside office. The two coders, the designer, the copywriter and of course her own office. The big name client. The big screen iMacs plus the iMac Pro for video editing. The photo of her with that guy who won the Apprentice.

She didn’t have any of it.

Four years in and she thought she would be further along. Not sat in the same back bedroom, on the same beaten up MacBook Pro, building the same crappy WordPress sites.

And, if anything, things were worse than when she started. Then she had spare time, she had cash to throw around and she had energy. Enthusiasm.

Now it’s just a slog. Every week the same. Long hours, no money, nothing on the horizon.

There must be a way to get back on track.

A way to pick herself up. A way to pick the business up.

Because she can not carry on like this much longer.

If you felt like that, how would you turn it around? What would your first step be?
