Businesses have a life span. Some live to be very old. Others die young. None are immortal.
Some get sick, but they get well. Others get sick, then get sicker.
Some businesses die on their own, while others are euthanized.
The same is true of careers. Our professional lives aren’t often diagrammed by a never-ending upward trajectory. They sometimes stumble, falter and take a nose-dive. At times they have to be reinvented. Like the US Marines, sometimes we encounter problems in our career and we have to improvise.
If you’ve got a business – or career – that is always under fire…take heart. There are probably opportunities within reach. You have to get some focus and clarity so you can see them.
