When Business is not going "Good"!

Helpful tips to move you in the right direction


Has this happened to you? Someone asks you, "Hey, how is business going? and you respond "Good." However, you are just a mass of chaotic turmoil underneath, wondering how much longer you can keep business going.


The other day my business networking forum discussed this concept of saying things are good while hiding the truth. We want others to see us as progressing and getting better, not see the hot mess and setbacks we face daily.


However, we all go through ups and downs, successes and setbacks. It's not uncommon for entrepreneurs to face periods of isolation and frustration, especially during challenging times.


Here are some tips to assist you in overcoming feelings of loneliness and frustration, allowing you to regain momentum and enthusiasm for your personal growth and development. 


1. Seek Support: Reach out to friends, family, or fellow entrepreneurs for emotional support. Sometimes, talking about your challenges and frustrations with someone you trust can provide a fresh perspective and offer encouragement. 


2. Join Entrepreneurial Communities: Connect with other entrepreneurs facing similar challenges. Join local or online entrepreneurial communities, forums, or networking events where you can share experiences, gain insights, and build a support network.


Awesome Note: I joined Network In Action to connect with my local business community. Check them out here


3. Mentorship: Seek out a mentor who has experience in your industry or has faced similar challenges. A mentor can provide guidance, share their own experiences, and offer valuable advice on overcoming obstacles. 


4. Diversify Your Network: Expand your network beyond your industry. Interacting with people from different backgrounds and professions can bring fresh perspectives and ideas, offering new solutions to your challenges.


Awesome Note: Going to business networking events doesn't have to all be about connecting to gain new business. Alignable has SmartConnect networking events to help connect and get some new ideas flowing. Check this one out here to connect and get help with social media content ideas. 


5. Remind Yourself of Your Why: Reconnect with the reasons you started your entrepreneurial journey. Understanding your purpose and passion can reignite your motivation and provide the resilience needed to overcome difficulties.


Awesome Note: Write it out, dictate it, blog, vlog... no matter how you want to record your WHY, get it out of your head. You can then look or listen to it when things are not going "good." 


Remember, seeking help is a sign of strength, not weakness. You don't have to face challenges alone, and there are resources and communities available to provide support. Don't hesitate to reach out for assistance when needed.
