Use the COVID-19 crisis as an opportunity to grow

Use the COVID-19 crisis as an opportunity to grow. And get ready to create the business and life you love. It has been said that humans grow more from 1 week of crisis than from 5 years of life going smoothly.

Remember a few weeks ago when life was normal?

Those days are over… for now! Every day the news keeps getting worse. And it’s going to keep getting worse for the next several weeks and possibly for the next several months.

It doesn’t take an expert to see that the global economy is shifting, and when change happens, society needs to grow & adapt.

I understand it’s hard to think about growing and adapting when your paralyzed by worry. You could be worried about your financial security. You could be worried about your health. You could be worried about your family and their security and their health. You could be worried about a lot of things right now.


I’m not going to try to talk you out of your fears. They’re all valid concerns. But you need to live by the old cliche “when the going gets tough… the tough gets going.” You need to develop the right mindset to take control of your destiny and actually grow in the time of crisis. Because no matter how bad things get… there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. This too shall pass…. It always does.

But the question is… will you leave your life destiny up to chance? In someone else’s control? Or will you take control of your life direction for yourself?

You have 2 options that will determine your ultimate destiny

You have 2 options… to choose from that will determine your destiny.


#1: hunker down and try to wait things out, and hope for the best… that you will have a job at the end of this.

#2: get to work… take advantage of the time you have, and start designing the business and life you love… so that you create a financial fortress around yourself and family that can’t be broken.

If you choose option #1: Good luck. I hope everything works out for you.

If you choose option #2: That means you’re going to use this crisis as an opportunity to grow.

And if you choose option #2… I’d like to help you get to work strategically. I’d like to give you some free coaching and training.  I’d like to arm you with my best strategies for succeeding in tough times.

The reasons most people don’t start their own business

Have you considered taking the chance on being your own boss, saying to yourself, “I’m going to do it – today I’m going to start my own business” – only to shuffle that ambition into the recesses of your mind for future consideration?

Many people look to starting a business of their own as a way to achieve happiness in the world, to take charge of their lives, to demonstrate their effectiveness in the world, and to find fulfillment. Being your own boss can be extremely satisfying, but it also comes with the stressful responsibility of making and living with your decisions. The right decisions make you money, and the wrong decisions will cost you money. Too many bad decisions can force a business to close.

starting a businessFor most people, the thought of starting a business is frightening, because it forces them to come to grips with the feasibility of their idea, as well as their strengths and weaknesses. This can lead to self-doubts and second-guessing regarding success, financial security, and failure.

Fear perpetuates from the fact that most people have no background in entrepreneurship. Their education and social conditioning prepared them for employment, to take orders and follow them vs. thinking like an entrepreneur.
