When should you ask for help?

When you run your own business, you're going to hit tough times. Sometimes it's going to feel like a never-ending slog of tough times.

You can't carry it all on your own.

At some points, you need to ask for help.

When is that point?

I once did a course that described that point perfectly. They called it the FTM - the "fuck this moment". You know, you're at work and someone says something, the tool you're using breaks, it starts raining or a bird craps on you from a great height. And you just say to yourself "fuck this".

What help do you need? Well, that depends on the circumstances. If you're too busy, if you're always stressed, if you can't seem to balance how much you work with how much money you're pulling in, then I can probably help.
