Are you waiting for things to get better?
The threat to your business is not over, warned Aurik Business Accelerator founder Pavlo Phitidis.

The threat is nefarious and silent.
It’s hard to see and feel.
Because it’s (probably) you!
Dr Seuss called it “the waiting place”; it kills businesses, and it kills your spirit.
