It has now been exactly 5 months and I’m personally ready for COVID 19 to leave the building, the country, and the planet. By nature, I’m a social person and my profession required many outside meetings a week. The rest of the time was spent in my office with the lovely Associates that keep us running here at the Global HQ. Now I spend much of my time alone. Completely opposite of my life pre-Covid mode.
While this change in day to day life was not one I would have chosen, it has had its positive attributes along with the challenges. In addition to being a social person, I am also an avid planner and find my calendar comforting. During Covid mode, that has gone out of the window completely. Somehow though, we must keep going and growing.
One way I am keeping active and sane is to participate in Networking events both as a host or guest. This week I was on a Score Women’s Networking Zoom Event with 50 women from throughout So CA and one visitor from Mexico. The Host asked us to answer this question.
“In the past 5 months, how has your business weathered the storm?”
For some that pivoted quickly, they are having their best year ever. Part of this could be luck or strategic business planning. Some businesses are by nature pandemic/recession-proof and essential. If your business is not essential, what have you done to get back into the game?
She had some recommendation that I thought were solid and noteworthy:
From a personal perspective, I consider myself a positive person but in the past few months, I have had my moments. Living in gratitude is an excellent and proven tool for being happy. While journaling is not easy for me, I have been writing down 5 things a day that I am grateful for in a beautiful book from one of my favorite authors. Check out “The Simple Abundance Journal of Gratitude” By Sarah Ban Breathnach
Please share how you are staying sane and centered while in Pandemic Mode. I’m purposely calling it Pandemic Mode as it helps remind me that this will not be forever, even though right now it feels that way. Here is to all of us surviving and thriving in 2020!
Esther Ross of Ross Embroidery is always out networking on behalf of all Leads Club Members. She understands the value of bringing in guests to the Chapter meetings. One of the guests already passed a lead that did business with our newer massage therapist. The power is there!!!
This group is striving for $100k also and will likely surpass this goal. We call ourselves “small but mighty.” LOL!! She is a member of the Lake Houston Coed Chapter in Atascocita, Texas!
She will remain as director as she is a POWERHOUSE!!!
