I know a lot of business owners are feeling unsettled right now and unsure about continuing with “business as usual”, so I wanted to share today and offer some serious permission + reassurance!
— As online business owners, we’re uniquely positioned right now and way ahead of the curve when it comes to operating thriving business models.
— Now more than ever, the marketplace has opened up with people desiring (and needing) to take their work remote and online.
— People need what you have to offer, and it’s totally okay to continue promoting and selling.
— Not only is selling okay, it’s necessary right now and truly how you serve your industry and the world.
— Reiterating – people’s pain points are real and their need for support and what you have to offer is real. This is not opportunistic – this is the cycle of business. (We don’t expect toilet paper or hand sanitizer companies to hold back on selling, just because their product is more needed than ever right now.)
— There’s no need to discount your prices. (Certainly do that if if feels good to you, but there’s no actual business need to do so.) I want you to feel good about the work you do and I want you to get paid well for doing needed, good work in the world. I mean – we don’t expect doctors and nurses to work for discounted rates or for free right now, just because the need is high, right?
— In fact, our industry needs us NOT to discount our prices, so we can continue to support and grow our particular industry.
— We could actually see a large boom in the online industry, with more people wanting to break into owning an online business. I want you to continue showing up and deciding your business growth is possible right now – because it is (sharing more about my clients’ amazing results this week tomorrow).
Now all of this isn’t to make light that these can be very challenging times right now – in both life and business. But I wanted to come out and give my community massive permission to continue growing your business and taking opportunities to serve the need that’s currently there.
Permission to sell your much-needed services. Permission to feel good about growing your business right now. Permission to decide that your business (and you) will continue to thrive during this time.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this! What have YOU been doing so far, business or mindset-wise, to feel strong and positive? Comment below and let me know!
