It can be good or bad, but regardless - it is usually difficult. Change often involves tough decisions that need to be made about your business or your life. Shutting down a product line, reducing your staff to adjust to your new business strategy, even shutting down your business altogether, or saying goodbye to a good friend who is moving on.
Change is inevitable and it is OK to feel sad about the changes happening in your world - we are human after all. However, take a step back and look at what good things can come from the change. Will it allow your business to grow? Will it let you follow a dream you have put on hold? Will it let you move on to a new phase of your life?
