Some say “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” 

But something doesn’t have to be broken to be improved — or left behind.

Every time you’re scared to change something about your business, think of this episode! Too much risk aversion can have the same effect (or worse) as excess risk. Today, we explore how businesses fail when they don’t make bold changes. 

With specific examples, we demonstrate how inertia can kill your business just as easily as a bad move. While you can’t guarantee the results of taking a risk, you can guarantee what happens if you do nothing for too long.

Once you shake off the fear of change, your business will become more flexible, innovative, and sustainable. Click Play!
