Show Summary

On this episode we talk to Karen Dellaripa. What if you were taken out of your business unexpectedly without the ability to return or contribute to your business? How devastating would that be to your company? That’s exactly what Karen Dellaripa experienced when she fought off pneumonia during the intensity of January, February, and March bookkeeping season. Karen shares her story, lessons learned, and what you can do for your business to make sure that you are never taken out and your business doesn’t suffer.
