5 Minute Pivot: Emilie Davis
Right now, as you read this, on a scale of 1 to 10, how afraid are you of what’s next for your business?
Are you a 1 or 2 and not feeling afraid at all?
Maybe a “holy guacamole!” at 9 or 10?
Or, perhaps you’re in the middle at a 5. Because you started the day feeling fine and then something happened and now you’re super anxious. (Which means you may be making yourself a margarita to go with that holy guacamole as your day ends!)
My client Emilie Davis who started Linkhouse Consultants felt like a 10 when the quarantine hit.
She was excited to launch a new, strategic aspect of her business and move away from designing websites. Then, whamo, COVID happened.
She seriously wondered if she made a huge mistake leaving her employer and starting her own business less than a year ago.
But she did leave, and she still had 4 kids to support.
“If I had done nothing, my business would have failed” she said in her 5 Minute Pivot story. [link to video]
So, she started to rethink about why she wanted to move away from building websites. “I started realizing that it wasn’t a demographic I was looking for. It was a mindset.”
That one pivot helped her to start feeling like a 7, then 6, then 5 on the fear scale. And she started taking action.
“Taking action is better than inaction, even when I was afraid”, she says.
And it worked. “I was almost ashamed to tell people COVID helped my business. By the end of Q2 I had completely replaced the annual income from my job.” Whoa, she didn’t see that coming!
Give yourself 5 minutes right now to be encouraged.
Listen to Emilie share her story in her own words. Because taking action to overcome fear is a mindset we can all take forward – in these still, very uncertain times.
