The surest sign of business maturity is the willingness to take responsibility and ownership for everything that’s happens in your business—especially those things which go wrong. BOD™ member and DC designer, Christie Leu says when there’s a problem, “it’s all her fault,” and that means, she can correct anything that isn’t working.

In this episode we learn:

  • look at jobs that went wrong and find what you could have done to make them better
  • consider how to fix or avoid a problem in the future
  • improve communication with clients and contractors with better written systems
  • be responsible for choosing who to work with and when to walk away
