Who would have thought this?!
Can you believe it’s only been a week?
Or that we’d all get so fixated on toilet paper?
I’ve spent the last week listening to concerns and here are my 7 tips for crazy times. I hope you’ll find something here to support you.
One. Connect with like-minded people
I’m recommending the Conscious Business Community on Facebook, run by Marian Nielsen-Joos. There are some beautiful things happening in there at the moment. If you’re interested in the meaning of what you do as an entrepreneur, check it out. It’s very useful and reassuring to connect with others right now.
Two. Focus on keeping calm
Feeling calm is also very important at the moment, as you are no doubt aware. Here’s something that could help: this Facebook group is singing, humming or chanting for 3 minutes a day. You might think that sounds weird, but humming has been proved to stimulate the vagus nerve and to quickly calm you down. Give it a try!
Three. Focus on your inner leadership
Leontine Boxem is an experienced mentor for entrepreneurs and leaders, she’s offering a free training series to support you during crazy times. If this situation is making you feel powerless and less effective than you’d like to be, check the free training series out here.
Four. Learn from experienced homeschoolers
Berenice Goin-Zeiter has massive experience in homeschooling while travelling the world with her kids. She’s recorded a YouTube video with tips and there’s a Facebook group too if you’re looking for ideas for what to do with the kids (in English).
Five. Keep your teenagers engaged
If you have teenagers who could do with some extra support with English for the next few weeks, they could join some small groups I’m setting up for free, starting from next week. If they are interested, check this out and I’ll get back to you very soon. I hope this will give you some more time to work!
Six. Now could be exactly the right time to go global with your online business
I’ve set up a 7-day action plan starting very soon to support you make this step. You’ll find more information here.
Seven. Keep communicating with your clients
It’s essential to be visible now and to keep communicating with your clients. No one expects you to know everything, but be clear, positive, responsible and helpful. Now is exactly the time to be communicating and to become a beacon amongst all the nonsense and scaremongering.
Need to send information to your clients about covid19 in English? Feel free to contact me if you need any texts (or translations into English). I’m happy to help you think through your message.
Normally I return short texts in 48 hours, but given the circumstances, I’ll do everything I can to get emails or press releases back to you within maximum 24 hours. I do translations from Dutch on a regular basis, I’m very happy to help you find translators from other languages.
Working on my book
For the next few weeks, I’ll be working on adapting to these crazy times, on texts and English mentoring for clients and working on my book about going global with your online business in English . First draft is nearly ready 🙂
