Today we are going to discuss….. How Some Weeks Just Suck and how to Survive the Rough Patches of Your Small Business
Here is what we discuss in today's episode:
How some weeks just sick and how you can survive the rough patches in your local small business. The past two weeks have been horrible for me, and a great reminder that even when you have a positive attitude, crappy weeks are going to happen. Your goal is to survive and how to prepare for them and more importantly, how to get out of them!
Here are the lessons we can learn from these bad times.
Lesson #1 – Some Days You Will Work Hard and Make No Money
Lesson #2 – You Must Build Up a Cushion in Your Bank Account
Lesson #3 – Other People Control Your Destiny
Lesson #4 – Stay Calm as Being Upset Accomplishes Nothing
Lesson #5 – Don’t Get Sucked into the Negativity that is Coming Your Way
Lesson #6 – Was Any of it Preventable? What Lessons Were You to Learn?
Lesson #7 – You Must Believe in Your Heart and Your Attitude that this Bad Time Will End and Business Will Be Stronger Than Ever!
Crap happens, it is how you deal with it that matters!
