Reinventing Your Business: Second Time Around, Twice As Hard

This week on The Localist, Carrie is tackling the tough topic of reinventing a business, side hustle, or project. Every business owner is familiar with the excitement of starting a new adventure, but what do you do when the adventure shifts and you have to rework the idea? Carrie describes her struggles with realizing aspects of a project are no longer working and her process of getting out of that rut, sans the fresh-start-excitement. She details the steps she took, resources she consulted, and gives practical tips that are relatively easy (and mostly free). Carrie wraps up with the importance of making hard decisions, having support, and bringing in new ideas.
