Part One of ‘From Recessions to Pandemics Why Serial Entrepreneurs Thrive with Laura Neubauer’
Before the pandemic, people used to walk free through the airports without thinking of any virus outbreak. Just like when 9/11 happened, things were never the same after that. Some people take a little bit longer to grieve through certain things changing because, as humans, we don't love change. Part of our challenge right now from a psychological perspective is to get into the space of accepting the new normal.
During the Great Depression and the Great Recession, there was a vast money exchange that happened. And those who were paying attention and watching for the opportunities were the people that became multi-millionaires during that time.

With everything that's happening right now, it's essential to look at the trends of what's going to be temporary and what's going to be the permanent changes. Some companies are going to be downsizing left and right because a lot of them have transitioned to remote jobs.
If you have a business that you've been traveling to see clients and they've been paying you to travel, then that's not going to occur anymore because they're used to the zoom calls. They're used to working with you a different way right now. And you must learn how to adapt and change, so you have extra offerings for them to make.
“Focus on the relationship and delivering high-quality service.” — Ursula Mentjes
There's a percentage of the population who has even more money right now than they did a month ago, which is fascinating. That may not be true for everyone, but the point is that there's money out there. When you're clear on what you want to create, the way always shows up.
This is the time for business leaders like you to focus more on the relationship and deliver high-quality service. Eventually, your clients are going to feel like they're part of your family. At the same time, this is also a time to reset your goals and recommit to your goals again. Reward yourself for not only surviving this pandemic but thriving or making some of those steps forward.
