I don’t know about you, but last week shook me more than I was expecting.
The reality of COVID-19 hit the US hard, both economically and socially. We’ve never really experienced anything like this before, and I think it shocked a lot of us to see our realities change so rapidly with school closures, offices shutdowns, and empty grocery aisles.
This is the type of situation that can leave you feeling paralyzed.
When you’re a business owner, you can’t afford to stay frozen in place, which is why for this episode I wanted to focus on the actions we can take to get through these uncertain times.
This episode is a little longer than usual, but because I’ve had so many amazing conversations with other entrepreneurs this past week about how to respond to this crazy situation we’re all facing, I wanted to share as many insights as I possibly could.
So for this episode, we discuss:
Why you can’t afford to wait around and see what happens
Why you need to keep selling right now
Why budgeting and forecasting is more important than ever for your business
Why now is the time to create a personal budget if you don’t have one
Why you need to make building a business savings fund a priority for the future
Why communication is so crucial right now
Why you still need to take care of yourself mentally and physically
Why we need to show up for our clients and customers as much as we can
Why we need to be ready to adapt and pivot
Why online businesses have a huge advantage over other business models
Here are the links I mentioned in this episode.
Be safe everyone!
