The uncertainty of 2020 has brought major difficulties to many small businesses but it has also brought opportunity to others. The opportunity to reflect on what you are doing and what your own purpose is moving forward.
During this period, a good number of people have taken that opportunity, and started their own business – often something they have been thinking about and wanting to do for a long time.
I started my own business this year, and I am coaching several people that are doing the same. I am supporting them to be able to take a step back and really look at what they want to achieve and the steps to get there. Helping them to build their confidence and to believe in themselves, in their ideas and in their aspirations. Knowing what is important to them as well as what is important to their customers.
Creating clarity has been an important part of our coaching sessions. Knowing that it will undoubtedly be a bumpy ride but having a vision of where they want to be, along with the detail of how to get there, provides a real sense of purpose and direction.
