The recent coronavirus may be testing your business model and its viability. Accordingly, it has many business owners asking the questions, “Was I prepared? When this thing is over, will I go back to business as usual, or will I be the benefactor of valuable lessons- learned?”
One of the hallmarks of business success is Location, location , location.
Let’s look at some possible recalculations we might consider when it comes to your business location in 3 critical areas. Physical, Technical and Mental.
Physical – Where are you physically?
• Is your location accessible, convenient?
• Is your location safe, secure?
• Are you around like-minded people who have your back?
Technical – Where are you technologically?
• Can you conduct routine tasks online, i.e. information gathering, collecting payments, scheduling appointments?
• Which services can you move or duplicate online?
• Can you expand your audience with technology?
Mental – Where are you mentally?
• Are you in this for the long haul?
• Are you flexible, nimble?
• Are you thinking ahead?
Remember that your purpose doesn’t change just because circumstances change. If it’s truly your purpose, you’ll find a way to get it done, regardless.
Let’s use this moment to shake ourselves from a business slumber. In these uncertain times we have to be better prepared for uncertainty, and we have to be ready to reinvest in a future that includes the ability to conduct business in multiple locations and platforms, including online.
