TC: FOCUS ON SOLUTIONS
For the past month I have been following small business owners that have shared their biggest challenges. Even as we are beginning to see the light at the end of the COVID tunnel, these three issues still, in my opinion, are the top challenges that small business owners face:
- A lack of in-person networking events.
- Ability to transition to a Digital-first world.
- Lacking creativity.
Your challenge for this week is to tell me how each of these challenges can best be solved.
The following are three suggestions that I came up with:
- It’s time to breakout of hibernation and start a one-on-one campaign with potential networking contacts. Set up a coffee meeting every day for the next thirty days and network. By the end of thirty days, or even sooner, you may feel comfortable creating small networking groups of 5 to 8 people.
- Yes, you can “teach an old dog new tricks”; it just takes a little longer. We can all learn if we persevere.
- Creativity, for some of us, occurs when we brainstorm with others, your peer group or mentor. Determine what areas you need to change and reach out (including a call to BizQuack) and discuss possible solutions.
Focusing on solutions instead of problems is a must for small business owners. Don’t say I can’t; focus on saying I can.
