So many times, I have felt like giving up. But I'm a big believer in "where there's a will, there's a way." Your persistence, tenacity and creativity are your million dollar ticket. Hang in there, keep going, and know that you are not alone!
I admire people like Romy Taormina, founder of PsiBands, because of her tenacity and persistence. Guess how long it took her to land a huge account like CVS? You might be surprised by her answer...
So many people talk about telling your story. If you've been around Savor for a while, you might also think it's an OD topic. We get it, right? However, Romy talks about a different kind of story... one that I think will get you even further.

I am starting to think that I'm a big walking ball of content. Earlier this week, something kind of disturbing happened to me. We hired a cleaning lady to clean the store, and she ended up being a huge handful... and wrote something really awful about me on Yelp! Since we get tons of business from Yelp (are you working Yelp yet? If not... you should really consider even if you don't have a storefront because it's a real revenue generator), it was something I had to deal with immediately.
I vlog about the situation, what I did about it, and I have a surprise guest who provides lots of empowering tools that you can use to protect yourself. :)

So I'm going through a life crises that I think you will be able to relate to. It's a business/lifestyle thing, and I'm determined to figure this out... not only for me but to share the honest ups and downs with you.
We launched out businesses to do what we love, right?! Then we find ourselves working so hard day in and day out. I hear it from all of you... the overwhelm can be beyond stressful!
Well, I've made a major life-changing decision that I'm asking for support in... and I hope you will join me this summer as I go on a healthier journey to building big business.

Just woke up, put on my robe and recorded this vlog because I had to share something that I learned this week about relationships and negotiation. It was spurred on because the Wall Street Journal called me yesterday and asked me to comment on someone and his management style.
It made me think about how I recently had to deliver some "bad news" to one of my employees and how I was able to avoid a disagreement, negotiate and create a win/win situation from it.
