Ep 146: You Have Two Choices (But Really Only One)
Today we’re going to be talking about what you should be doing in your online business in light of the coronavirus. I’m not going to be discussing the virus itself, but we have to be honest that things have changed. Everything seems to have been turned on its head, so it would be a disservice to you if I didn’t give my thoughts.
You have two choices. You can either sit in fear, worry, and paralysis by doing nothing, or you can get back to work. The only real option you have is the second one. Spending time worrying about things that you cannot change isn’t productive.
A lot of people are asking if it’s wrong to sell right now and if they should pull back. My answer is: hell no! It’s not that you should try to capitalize on this pandemic. Right now, the world needs you and me a lot more than it did a few months ago. We can harvest the skills we have to serve people in so many different ways.
You need to be out there, and you don’t have a choice. This is a disruption that is going to last months. If you’re thinking of pulling back until things are normal again, you’re not going to be serving for quite a long time. I’ll give you an example about how online businesses are keeping the economy going right now.
If you have a product or service that brings joy to people, you can pick up the slack from the movie theaters and bars that are closed. Lean in, and realize that this is the time to push forward.
