Business was purring along just fine. Clients happy, bills getting paid, cash piling up, smiles all around. You relax, which is good, but you just don’t do the little extras anymore to keep the growth coming, to set yourself apart from the competition, to make sure the upcoming months will be as good as the current ones. Or something unforeseen happens that is out of your control.
Chaos comes crashing in, a little bad news here, something falls between the cracks there and one of your clients goes somewhere else. You didn’t see this coming and to pile on, something happens in the local business market, things slow down. Another client, stays but cuts back, or worse, can’t pay their bills.
All these hit at the same time, when everything seemed under control. What do you do?!?!
When chaos invades your calm. When the sea you’re sailing on gets a little bumpy there are three things you should remember and execute on right away.
If you’ve been around the block a few times you know things always change. Sometimes from bad to good, but also from good to bad. Challenges will come at you, chaos will raise its head and disturb your calm. That is when you need most to keep your wits about you. To remember you got here once by hard, dedicated effort and you can do it again.
