When things stand still, it could be the perfect time to align and prepare for a new awakening.
In business, changing environments are nothing new. Change creates new opportunities. In my own experience, success has always come from moving with the changes, reinventing and innovating to make work balance with home life, (as much as possible).
The corona virus outbreak will give a lot of us a window of opportunity to reset, restructure and refresh systems and processes. These may be strange, unprecedented times but times when individuals can grow and thrive. Take the opportunity to reconnect with yourself, your mission, vision and what you want out of life.
Here are my top FIVE things to do during the Coronavirus downtime
1. Plan! Review your current business set up. Your routines, systems and strategies. For a short time you’ve been freed from the day-to-day running of your business, shift your thinking to longer term and more strategic planning. Now is the time to work on your business strategy.
Questions you might ask?
Where am I now? Where am I going? What are my costs? Where do I make money? How can I save money? Whats missing? What additional resources do I need? Who is my audience? How do I gain market advantage? What are my goals? Will there be new opportunities?
2. Learn new skills. Use your time effectively – Remember those who consistently succeed are those who are best at learning new skills.

3. Enhance your online profiles. How are you showing up? Could you do more? Use your time to curate and create content for your websites and social media profiles, make sure they present you in the best light possible.
4. Start a new business. opportunities will arise from this crisis and they are there for the taking. I’ve started many businesses in my time, and what was needed for them to seed was some time at the offset to focus on the concept. If you’ve had an idea for a while, now is the time to start seeding it and put the wheels into motion to launch when the world is ready!
