Seriously, what was your big turning point?
For us one of our biggest turning points was when we were working long hours, trying to make ends meet barely covering our overhead and had our first employee working for us as an independent contractor (mistake). She was making really good money (actually she was taking home more than we were making combined!) and was able to buy herself a brand new car with the money she earned from our company. Meanwhile we were sharing a used Dodge Shadow that our parents gave us that they bought at an auction for $1000. Seeing her drive up in her brand new car, calling us out to see the awesome sound system, we both knew something was not working. It wasn’t her fault, it was our fault. We just didn’t have the right system or recipe to follow…yet.
