5 Ways to Build a Business in Uncertain Times

COVID-19 quarantine check-in: How are you doing, boo boo?

I’m currently going down an Easter bunny-sized rabbit hole on Instagram looking for small businesses to support to fill my daughter’s first Easter basket.

*OMGGGG, I’m tempted to throw away my retirement fund just to buy all the cute knit dolls and booties!*

But in all seriousness, this is a challenging time for all of us. For many, we’ve been on lockdown for what seems like years, while the end seems so far out of reach.

While you may be running out of household chores to accomplish, makeshift homeschool ideas, and every last ounce of patience, I want to remind you of one thing:

>>Even though we are cooped up, we are not cooped in.<<

In spite of the odds, in spite of the economy, in spite of the fact that we’re basically on house arrest, we will continue to rise up.

*Can somebody say AMEN?!*

There’s a silver lining to every situation, and while it may be easier for some to see than others, something positive to come out of this pandemic is the fact that people are spending more time online than ever before. People are furiously scrolling for education, entertainment, and an escape. 

This means that now is the time for business owners to SHOW UP and give people what they want.

Take this opportunity, run with it, and build your business… no matter how uncertain or scary.

>>The only way to grow is to CHOOSE fortitude, not fear.<<

Friend, fear might be knocking on your door right now, but I believe you are capable of chasing it off *from six feet away, with a can of Lysol and a roll of toilet paper, of course*.

It’s your time to shine, boo, and I’ve got some ideas on how you can make that happen. Below are five ways you can choose fortitude and build your business in uncertain times. 

Collaborate With Peers

Now is the time… to dig in to the tasks you’ve been putting off in your own business by helping others in return. Offer your talents to someone else in exchange for a website refresh, finance audit, or anything in between.

Volunteer Your Talents

Now is the time… to give, give, give. Serve people well NOW so they come back for more LATER.

Create E-Learning Experiences

Now is the time… to create an experience that showcases your business. People turn to the Internet in times of need, so you can provide a reason for them to turn to YOU.

Invest In A New Skill

Now is the time… to not only fine-tune your current skills, but also to open your eyes to other opportunities that will broaden your horizons and enhance your capabilities in running a business.

Start A New Project

Now is the time… to give yourself freedom to create something new. No rules to follow. No pressure that it has to work. Just do it.

Friend, these are the exact steps I’m taking in my own business TODAY to ensure I push through… and I want the same for you. 

>>There comes a time when you must continue to rise up to the challenge, no matter how many times you’ve been knocked down.<<
