Everyone in the world has been affected by the recent pandemic, but it has been particularly difficult for small business owners.
According to the Brookings Institute, over 50% of small businesses with employees--about 4 million businesses--face immediate or near-term risk.
Brick-and-mortar establishments have been forced to close. Those who have been deemed "essential" must choose between protecting their physical health and providing for their families.
Some have the privilege to work safely at home, but may be burdened by a spouse's job loss or salary reduction, while also attempting to home-school or care for aging parents.
The future is uncertain.
But there are actions we can take.
I launched my business in 2009, at the height of the Great Recession. Despite the dim forecast, in less than a year, I was able to exponentially grow my client list and work at my business full time. While established companies were struggling to adjust to the economic collapse, I was able to help our clients pivot and identify new opportunities. Rather than relying on the way things had always been done, I focused on reinvention, innovation, and creativity.
I helped my clients chart new waters.
And I'm ready to help you do the same.
What to Expect:
This 12-week program will focus on how to best pivot your current business model and adapt to the current climate. We'll identify new revenue streams, ways to nurture and support your current clients, and how to sell your products and services in a way that feels in tune with and respectful of the current climate.
We will begin with a 60-minute kick-off call to lay the foundation for the program. This will be followed by weekly assignments and bi-weekly video calls to check on progress and answer questions.
At the end of 12 weeks, we will have pivoted your business to adapt to the new economy.
How I Work:
I help people identify what they really want to do with their lives and help them create the road map to get there. I believe that everyone, no matter which industry they work in, deserves to have a meaningful career and fulfilling life.
My role as your coach is to help you re-connect with the tools already in your toolbox, and to encourage you to use them. I specialize in helping small business owners identify pivot opportunities and create a career that's best for them.
You can't run full speed into a dark room. I'm here to provide a flashlight.
Applicants will be notified by August 28th.
Coaching begins September 7th
