Who’s the Boss? No, I’m not asking for Tony Danza, star of the 1980’s sitcom. When I ask a small business owner “Who’s the boss?”, he or she should always answer, “Me!”

Unfortunately that’s not always what happens…

Woooo, what a week!!! Infusionsoft Certified Partner training ended yesterday with a six hour exam, and to say I was exhausted – physically AND mentally – would be an understatement.  Despite my exhaustion, however, it became clear Wednesday morning that grounding small business owners is constantly necessary.
