Let's switch gears briefly and discuss the COVID-19 pandemic. What adjustments have you made in your life and business since the pandemic started?
When the COVID-19 pandemic started, I made a few adjustments in my life and business. First, I started using zoom for all of my online meetings. This was a great way to stay connected with my clients. I started taking more time for myself. I began exercising more and spending time outside. I also started meditating and reading more. These changes have helped me to be happier and more productive.
What advice would you give to entrepreneurs struggling to balance their life and business?
As an entrepreneur, it can be easy to get caught up in the day-to-day grind of running a business. However, it’s important to remember that there is more to life than work. If you find yourself struggling to balance your business and personal life, here are a few pieces of advice that may help. First, make sure to schedule time for yourself and your loved ones. Just as you would schedule a meeting or a deadlines, make sure to put time in your calendar for things like watching a movie, going for a walk, or spending time with family. Secondly, don’t be afraid to delegate. You don’t have to do everything yourself – delegate tasks to employees, contractors, or even friends and family members who you trust. Lastly, remember to take breaks. Step away from your work every once in awhile, even if it’s just for a few minutes. Go for a walk, get some fresh air, or simply take a few deep breaths. By taking the time to recharge, you’ll come back to your work refreshed and ready to tackle whatever challenges come your way.
Share with us one ingredient in your secret sauce for success.
Prayer and never giving up are the two biggest ingredients in my secret sauce for success. Whenever I face a difficult situation, I pray for guidance and wisdom. And no matter how hard things get, I never give up. I believe that prayer and perseverance are the two things that will always help me overcome any obstacle. So far, this approach has worked well for me and I hope it will continue to do so in the future. Thanks for asking!
