The last few weeks have been quite a journey for many of us. Some of us have found great peace being at home, and others are antsy and ready to get back to life as we knew it. But what if we don't go back to the old way of life? What if this time is used to determine what really makes you happy? You see, for years, many of us have fallen into the trap of getting up, go to work, come home, and repeat.
We didn't take the time to slow down and evaluate if the career choice was the right fit forever or if it was the right fit for now.
I recall a time in my life when I operated on auto-pilot, I was so tired that I didn't notice what was happening around me. My marriage had failed, I was busy in my career and I just functioned, I didn't live. I was weepy, tired, and frustrated. I didn't start feeling better until I began to look at things closely.
Now is the time to get off to a good start and set yourself up for success. Have you wanted to start a business? Did you know that the Small Business Association offers free classes and training? Everything from how to write a business plan, to how to apply for a loan. Now is the time to get your research done, write your business plan, and do market research. Things are not all doom and gloom. This time is the right time to plan, to research to launch.
