An Urgent Truth


*** This blog was originally an email I sent out on 3/23/20 amid the COVID-19 pandemic and the panic small business owners were experiencing all at once, I got a landslide of feedback that compelled me to share here.***
***(I have the best community, say anything different, and I’ll fight you.) ***

 

I know there is a lot of worry right now.. Look, guys, I don’t have all the answers for you, no one does. What I do know is that on the other side of this, there will be businesses that don’t survive this; their customers are still going to want those services.  – Will you be ready? 

Will you take advantage of the opportunities in front of you?  Are you going to spend this time buried in fear? Allow stress and anxiety to take over and shut you down?

NOPE

Do not allow yourself to be bulldozed by all of this into inaction, negative patterns, bad habits, or destructive behaviors. If you do, you are not going to be ready. You are in charge here, you get to decide how you are going to react to this. Coronavirus is simply another part of the business environment right now; your job is to figure out how you are going to react. YOU. Yes, you, are in control. Do not give away your power to these circumstances. That is how failure begins.

This all may sound harsh. If it offends you, that’s fine. This is an urgent truth. This is how fortunes are made and this is how businesses fail.

Start looking for the opportunities, seeing the timing, creating the strategy to adapt to the current situation, overcome the barriers and gaps, and thrive. Get VERY engaged in your business. If you can’t work IN your business, you sure better be working ON your business.

Remember, this won’t last forever, we will recover, and we will rise even stronger.
