Across the world, everybody has been affected by the coronavirus pandemic, whether you own a business, work for a business, are studying or retired.
After the initial shock of the national lockdown announced by Boris in late March, we have all changed our habits and following easing the restrictions in mid May, started to live in what is being called the NEW NORMAL.
Now this tests us all and places great strain on our mental wellbeing especially business owners concerned for the futures of both their business and their staff.
And just as things seem to be getting a little better as businesses start to re-open, shops and pubs and restaurants-SLAM-Greater Manchester is hit with additional local restrictions at the end of July.
Your resilience and problem solving skills are tested to the max and I, as a Business Mentor want to share a few tips I have gained throughout my career and indeed seen over the past weeks and months by many business owners, some of whom I currently mentor in Manchester and the surrounding areas:-
Some of my customers I mentor have had to temporarily close their business after years of trading during lockdown and have achieved their highest ever sales after lockdown-it can be achieved!
As a parent of 2 wonderful children now adults, I marvel at how when they were small and would maybe fall and cut their knee or arms, how their tears would evaporate with the soothing words of either their mum or myself, a big hug and of course a treat to soften the shock.
