Many entrepreneurs struggle with knowing when to ask for help. We look to The Little Engine That Could and think-we-can through every aspect of our business—all by ourselves. But what if there’s a better way to interpret that storybook’s advice? What if we had the faith to think-we-could find support when we needed it?
JJ Ramberg is the mission-driven entrepreneur behind Goodshop, an online coupon platform, and Goodpods, a new social network for giving and receiving podcast recommendations from friends and influencers you admire.
