The following story is one with which I am familiar.

“Top 3 Success Strategies from a Thriving Small Business” by Payal Kamdar
“The last few years have been challenging personally and professionally — but not because economists and the pundits have pronounced the U.S. economy to be weak, and the outlook bleak ad nauseam!
I consider it rough because over the same timeframe, I have been forced to constantly and rapidly adapt in my role as CEO to fulfill the needs of my organization, VSolvit (pronounced “We Solve it”).
VSolvit has quickly grown from a roughly five person company in 2010, to a 50-plus company expected to grow to a 100-person operation shortly. Since 2011, VSolvit and I have received national recognition — USDA Woman Owned Business of the Year and the SBA Minority Business Person of the Year.
If such success can be achieved in a down economy, can you imagine what will be possible when our economy is roaring again? I will share the top three strategies that have driven VSolvit’s success, though a quick disclaimer seems appropriate: VSolvit’s success is largely the result of, and a reflection of, our team members’ hard work and dedication, and the guidance they receive from inspirational mentors and coaches.”
