Wait! When it comes to building an online business for the long term is it just me or do you feel like that when you take a few steps forward, it’s followed by a mile backward.
Any new rounds of stay-at-home orders are disheartening but I don’t want you to be discouraged. Instead on this roller coaster of highs and lows, I want you to see yourself at the point where you’re about to go high but I’m not going to sugarcoat this.
As an owner of an online business, what I’m about to tell you takes works. But if you have weeks of downtime because of a lockdown, I know you can do what I’m about to tell you.
First of all, I need for you to breathe, and applaud yourself. You pivoted. You created digital products for your online business. You developed a resilience you never thought you had.
