In this episode, Dan breaks down a pretty common scenario in the contracting industry. Someone is running their own business, and someone else comes along and shares a bunch of issues with them.. which the first person then internalizes to try and work out a solution.

In this episode, we talk about…  

  • Not internalizing the issues of others as your own to try and help them find a resolution
