The path to success for a founder or executive is never a straight line.
There are always dips, adversity and major roadblocks that present themselves.
Some are forced errors, others are not.
The amount of time you spend “stuck” is often the difference between business success and failure.
Are you trying to figure a way out on your own?
Are you hamstrung by other team members, investors or customers?
Are you jumping from one shiny solution to another?
Learning from your mistakes is valuable – it certainly makes you stronger.
But the less time you spend in a dip is more time you have to execute your new strategy.
And it all starts with a trusted advisor and guide.
