I’ve gone back and forth on what to write for my blog regarding the current state of our world.
I’m heart broken for the countries that are devastated by this virus, I’m heart broken for the families in the US that are struggling to find the bare necessities at the grocery stores.
I have gone to all the extremes over the last few days and as I sit here at 5am this morning, I have to fall back on my faith and believe that we will rise above and be a stronger human race on the other side of it all.
I am thankful for those that work for companies that are still able to earn a paycheck and still provide for their families. There are so many that are not as fortunate. I am thankful for the businesses that are able to adjust and change their business models to allow their employees to either change their job or work from home.
For my fellow small business owners, entrepreneurs, and side hustlers that all of a sudden becomes your full time job. DONT STOP.
When you stop working on your business… you will stop the momentum. Yes, your sales will most likely fall drastically during this time. However, I choose to believe with all of my heart that we will rebound from this.
Let’s spend this time doing the things we haven’t had time to do.
Improve your processes.
Clean up your emails and templates
Clean up your files and hard drives
Re-do your branding and website
Organize your back office and shelves
Plan out your promotions for the rest of the year
Imagine if you spent the time being productive instead of sitting in an state of panic and fear… when it does rebound… you will be way ahead of the curve and ready to conquer your world.
Over the next few weeks, I will be sharing with you later tips and info on family sessions, head shots, senior sessions and boudoir sessions. Why not start planning for your future session while you have the time. We will also be sharing info on how we can make progress in our businesses and keep moving forward.
If you can, shop local businesses, pre-book your appointments, share these businesses with your social media… ask what you can do to help. Sometimes – it’s more impactful than you know.
Sending all the love and good juju to you.
