You have to dig into what’s working, what’s not, what needs to change to be more aligned with how you’ve grown and where you want to grow next. Overall, you’re just dealing with a lot more moving parts, and it is all too easy to drive yourself into overwhelm. 

Unless of course, you’re working with our guests for this episode: Sarah Ancalmo Ashman (image right) and Shauna Haider (image left) onto your rebrand team!
