I am certainly not one of those who need to be prodded. In fact, if anything, I am the prod.
Are you the prod in your business? If you are then you are in the right place. Successful business owners are self starters and do not need to be prodded. Laziness or a lack of self-starting initiative will kill your business.
Winston Churchill was a prod from his youngest days and he accomplished much in his lifetime.
Get up and get going.
