As an entrepreneur and a ‘do-er’ at heart, when faced with a problem it can be hard to hold back from getting straight into solution-mode! Sometimes that works and sometimes you need to take a step back and approach the issue from another angle.

We’ve developed our spin on the creative problem solving framework – jump right in and get a step-by-step process for solving problems and getting over obstacles. We face them on the regular when we’re business-owners, so having this framework has helped us immensely.

Let us know what you think! Hit us up with comments and suggestions about how you tackle your problems with business. If you need that next level of servicing, don’t forget to check over here and we’d be happy to book a chat with you!
