How To Turn the Current Crisis Into An Opportunity

Here in London, UK we’re in our second lockdown. All over the world, the pandemic doesn’t seem to show signs of deceleration, some countries have been in lockdown since April this year.

It’s definitely hit a lot of businesses esp. SME’s (small and medium sized businesses) hard. I was speaking with the owner of my local pub, and was sad to hear he was closing down and not opening for the foreseeable future. The landscape has definitely changed for a lot of people because of Covid.

Apparently an estimated 76,300 SME’s have shut permanently in the UK since the lockdowns.

I imagine, a lot of these businesses were physical ‘bricks and mortar’ businesses, it’s hard to pivot, adjust and be agile when you’re tied to a physical location.

According to research provided by small business insurers ‘Simply Business’ around 15% of London’s small to medium sized business owners plan to start a new business, once the crisis is over. 

More than a fifth of SME owners have said they are actually “optimistic” about their business chances after the lockdown. Not surprising as entrepreneurs tend to be positive people : )

If I could offer advice to anyone who’s lost their business or their job during this pandemic, and is looking to re-start and re-build themselves again?…

I would say, embrace the potential and opportunities of the internet, by learning how to leverage it to create a business that’s agile, flexible, adaptable, robust and recession-proof in any economic climate. NOW is the time, in fact, there’s never been a better time to start learning and applying this.

Education and knowledge is something no one can ever take away from you once you have it, I encourage you to look into using the internet and learning how to use it, to create your kind of freedom and to be economically resilient even in the face of something as serious as a global pandemic.

Speak soon,

How To Live Your Dreams NOW…( Using Just A Pen & Paper)

Harvard did an interesting business study on people who graduated from their MBA programme. They found that 3% of graduates who had their goals written down, earned ten times as much as the other 97% put together. 

Coincidence? Maybe. 

But what if science backs it up? Lots of independent studies have shown that people cognitively learn faster by constant repetition. 

The same principle that applies when you’re studying for a test, learning how to drive, or learning a new language. 

When we continuously immerse our body and mind into something and reinforce it by repetition, humans seem to be capable of outstanding things. 

So IF there’s something in it, and if all it cost to possibly improve your life by 10x, is a pen and paper to write your dreams down. Why not do it? 

It doesn’t have to be on a piece of paper either, be creative with it,

  • Build a vision board and hang it on your wall
  • Use coloured post it notes and leave them in places you’ll always look 
  • Set up a screensaver on your phone and computer
  • Use a free app like Google calendar and Google reminders

You can literally ‘build’ your dreams and keep them in front of you, so they’re visible to you always, allowing you to live them now, before they even happen. 

Let them serve as inspiration and motivation, and also like ‘magnets’ pulling you towards their eventual manifestation by combining them with positive action and belief

Have fun! : )

How To Let Your Dreams Come To You

Ever notice when you’re feeling great, good things just seem to go your way naturally, even effortlessly? 

And when you’re not feeling great, the opposite happens, tasks, deadlines, personal relationships can suddenly feel chaotic and overwhelming really easily. 

I believe how we feel about ourselves is directly connected to the reality we create in our lives: good or bad. 

What’s worked well for me is this… 

Once I’m clear about what I want in life, I simply ‘ask’ for it. I do that by visualising it regularly, combined with 

Making sure my dominant energy is that of ‘feeling good’…as often as possible. 

I suggest you do the same by taking time out, stopping when you’re exhausted…self reflect and focus on your wins…physically work out to flood yourself with endorphins…surround yourself with good people…whenever possible, commune with the natural world….forgive (yourself and others)…project love and if needed, tough love (as long as it’s love)… 

Do whatever you can…to make yourself feegood while visualising and acting on your dreams. 

Only after all the negative energy ‘blocks’ are removed from our path…can our dreams make their way to find us. 

I imagine our dreams want to unite with us, as much as we want to unite with them.  

I believe our job is to help clear the way, so it can happen : )

Is It Possible To Be A Successful Entrepreneur With All That’s Happening In The World Right Now?…

It doesn’t take an expert to see the global economy has shifted dramatically and traditional business models are shifting too. 

Physical ‘bricks and mortar’ businesses are struggling and many have gone under because people are at home consuming more things online than ever before. 

It’s just the reality. 

So, is it possible to build a successful business even with all that’s happening in the world right now?… 

Definitely. If your business is online

Think about it… 

Online entrepreneurs don’t need physical stores, they’re not tied down to any physical location, they don’t require staff or employees and they have no limitations on the markets they can sell to.  

Here’s some more food for thought… over 2.5 Trillion per year is currently being spent in retail purchases online which means people, lots of people….are online and buying things all the time. 

Everything from small items like books, phones, cameras, to digital products like online training and self-development courses all the way up to larger goods like furniture, cars and even luxury homes. 

Yes, you can even buy a whole house online now! 

There’s a real opportunity here and there’s never been a better time to leverage the digital economy by learning how to build an online business than right now
