stuck-in-businessI didn’t know that I felt stuck in business the first 2 years of my coaching!

Why?

I could pick from a wide range of potential options.  I was unclear how to narrow down my choices and focus on one to get me moving.

Whew! So many decisions.

I just could not get the understanding what I was passionate about in business and find any one way to move and make a choice.

Have you ever felt that way?

But, what did you do?

Here’s what I felt I needed to do as I started to focus on getting unstuck in business and I listened to my intuition (of course) to lead me on what to do next.
