About This Episode

Starting and growing a business is a bit of a dance… and a bit of a game.  Imagine a seesaw, one that balances time and money. At the beginning, and throughout the dance of business ownership, there’s a constant strive to balance them.

There will be times when you have more time than money…and times when you have more money than time.  But what about when the seesaw is broken and you have limited reserves of time AND money…

This episode is all about being a master bootstrapper.  Taking the time and money that you do have and making the absolute most of it…
