WHAT. A. WEEK. 😨
So today I experienced something interesting....
No clients. Nadda. None. Zip. Zero. Zilch. And if I'm honest, next week isn't looking much better.
BUUUUUUTTTT whatchagonnadoaboutit!? 💁🏼
Turns out in a global crisis, tanning isn't a necessity! 😝
I am fully aware of the implications that times like this have on business. Not just mine. All businesses.
We are ALL navigating our way through this crazy ass time and for me, I'm really working on trying to disentangle my "self" from "my business"
When I say this, I mean that my own identity is so tied to my brand, that sometimes they fail to operate as two separate things.
During these times, it is important that we retain (or perhaps just start) to get a sense of "who we are" when we are "not our job".
Actually ask yourself: "WHO AM I?" Do you know? 😵
Right now, I am still "trading as normal," meaning, I am open if you want to come in.... but beyond that, I have no control, and I fully respect and appreciate where people's heads (and wallets) are at! I do not see the point of getting all salesy either but against this statement, some of you may see an "ad" I'm running.
I'm doing this to appease a business coach who feels that "now is the time" to promote online.
Everyone is welcome to do as they please this time, but for me, it doesn't sit well with my moral coding.
It is the most heart-centric thing I can put out to the world (and the thing my dad always said I should be doing with my life)....so I continue to share my thoughts as they pop into my head.
Colloquial and off-the-cuff.
As we approach the weekend, I hope we all are starting to "awaken" to the fact that life is changing, and this impacts everyone as a collective, not just YOU (as an ego-centric and selfish individual).
To quote Haruki Murakami, I think this sums things up: "Once the storm is over. You won't remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won't even be sure in fact if the storm is really over. But one thing is for certain. When you come out of the storm, you won't be the same person that walked in.
That's what the storm's all about...."
