The 7 Pieces of the puzzle that make or break
Spherical Approach – the 7 pieces of the puzzle, is an amalgamation of what I have learned, during 25 years of being trained, learning, testing, and scaling.

Moreover, after an extended dissertation study (a 2-year research and study of more than 700 micro-businesses), I have identified the struggles most entrepreneurs face in the “digital era”!
