“Change or die” might sound harsh, but M.J. Clark says it’s what she tells most of her clients.

Before it’s too late, Clark says it’s important to take intentional action to move your organization forward. Steps like working on the business, not just in the business, are crucial.
“Thinking about the business instead of just putting out fires all day allows you the space to be creative and to find permanent solutions to problems instead of reacting to them one at a time,” she writes.
