We all want to grow our businesses, but sometimes it’s not always exactly clear what that means. For some people, it’s getting new clients. For others, it means cultivating existing clients and getting more projects. Sometimes it’s stepping up your business’ presence, both online and off. Whatever growth means to you and your business, there are some aspects of entrepreneurship that are universally necessary. This week’s Gig Economy News brings you some of the best tips on how to grow personally and professionally in 2017.
