Focus on what you can do, not what you cannot.

In times like these, the world turns to doom & gloom. It is easy to jump on the negative bandwagon. It is easy to use the downtime to scroll through your personal choice of social media to see what the world has to say.

At least that is one choice that you can make.

If you are a podcast listener or follow any successful business person, you might notice the difference in their viewpoints versus those who have chosen to throw their hands up.

Successful people are reading books about shifts in business and how to run a business in a down time. Unsuccessful people are watching Netflix series.

Successful people are reorganizing their business due to the new

guidelines and trends. Unsuccessful people are complaining on social media about how their business is going to fail.

I know that times are scary. I am a business owner. I am an employer. I am self-employed. I am choosing to use this time to do all the things I use to wish I had time to do, like this blog!

Here are just a few things that I am doing right now to better myself or better my business.

· I am reading leadership based books that I have yet to finish. My book of choice right now is Brene Brown's 'Dare to Lead'. {If you are in any type of leadership, I highly suggest you pick up this book.}

· I am reaching out to clients that never committed to my services.

· I am offering free online classes for clients with business building tasks

· I am learning how to optimize my website and utilize the features I have been failing to use.

· I am posting positive content on Facebook for community engagement.

Notice that all but 1 of these items are completely free. The book... I call an investment, but there is a good chance that you have something lying around your home or office that you've been too busy to pick up. Now is the time!

When the world decides to go cloudy and grey, choose to find the sun. Go back to the fundamental resources of starting a business. Find the tools around you that you are already paying for or better yet FREE tools and implement them. Look for those around you that are in similar situations so that you can have core group of encouragement & support.

It really is that easy, you just have to want it.
