Get Some Distance To “See” Your Business

Get some distance to "see" your business

Many business owners are so involved in their businesses — physically, mentally, and emotionally — that it’s difficult to get any different perspective on it.

To see it, you have to step back and away. Compare your business to others. View yours from a bit of a distance. Ask questions you have never asked before.

A view from 5000 feet up isn’t the same as the view up close.
