2 - Low Tides Wash Up Debris
Low tides are a perfect time to take a serious look at the things that drag down your business. You can finally see the piles of bookkeeping and administration, tend to other unresolved matters and see for the first time, the issues you never knew even plagued your company.

Low tides also present opportunities that you never realized were within your reach. Appreciate those moments and look around at possibilities that can grow and evolve your company to something greater.
