Could there be a less obvious opportunity for you in this crisis? An opportunity to stand out, show up, be in service and be remembered? I think there may be and I explore this opportunity in this episode. It’s just a gut feeling and observation and only time will tell. But whether my theory is right or not, the worst-case scenario is it will give you hope.
It’s natural in a time of crisis for your emotions and mindsets to be all over the place. Ranging from conviction to make best use of the time on hand to wanting to curl up in a ball somewhere. From pushing yourself to keep going to knowing when it’s time for some self-care. The truth is, there’s no right way to do this. What you can expect though is to experience a full range of emotions. That is the crisis paradox.
In this episode, I challenge you to think about the after effect of the global pandemic. It WILL have an effect on your business. For better or worse remains to be seen. But make no mistake. With such a global shift, it will affect your business. Not just now, but perhaps years from now. People’s values will change. What’s important to them will change. The time is now to consider how your business fits into the new “norm.”

Almost everyone forced to work at home. Financial constraints frightening and becoming a problem for many. Making do with whatever supplies and groceries we have in our house. In this episode, I explore what’s possible. We look at how constraints can inspire creative solutions.
