What to do if 2021 is rocky for your Business

Are you a business owner who had a rocky Q1 2021? Well, you’re not alone. In this episode, I will be vulnerable to share with you the struggles I’ve encountered at the start of 2021 and how I’m managing them. I will then discuss a simple yet helpful activity that might also get you over the hump. Here’s a clue: You’ll have to draw a plus sign first.

Aside from that activity, I will break down a couple of steps you can take now to reevaluate your goals and a few pieces of advice you need to remember in running a business. Again, you are not alone in this struggle. Rocky quarters are normal, so is the feeling of being uncomfortable always. We just have to embrace all of them and hold on to why we started what we’re doing in the first place.
