In this episode, the Sheroes discuss what they call "Quit Week." Quit Week is something nearly every business owner stumbles upon where they feel like calling it quits—when they feel like ending their company and going back to working for someone else. Sometimes giving up a business is the right thing to do. When you decide to take this route and quit (with a capital Q, as Delores calls it), you shouldn't feel shame or feel like you've failed. We've been there, and it helped us get to where we are today. But what do you do when quitting isn't an option?
The Sheroes share their thoughts on why Quit Week is essential and how they successfully navigate the desire to give up on their businesses. They also share ideas on getting their businesses back on track or going down a different path when a pivot is needed to move forward.
