TUNE-IN + TURN IT UP ANYWHERE YOU LISTEN
Entrepreneur COVID-19 -How the heck does business as usual continue during this insanity? Everywhere you tune-in someone is spouting doom and gloom about the times we live in. As business owners that’s a dangerous spiral.
Many of us have much more than our entire lives invested in our companies, supporting families and employees, as well.
Fear in a time of uncertainty is absolutely normal -and warranted. However, existing in that fear, allowing it to cloud our judgement and overwhelm our decisions… that’s equivalent to entrepreneurial suicide.
Entrepreneurs go into business accepting that nothing is impossible!
Risk is in the job description that we accept as a part of the entrepreneurial-social contract in order to even have a viable shot at success. It’s the Yin to the Yang. The risk may be steep, but so are the potential rewards.
If your internal alarm recognized an iota of truth and you need to remember that this isn’t the end, but a new beginning . You’re in the right place, because This Is The Moment Every Entrepreneur Has Been Waiting For : COVID-19.
Enter -Jimmy Chebat

Jimmy’s been around the block, gaining the understanding which accompanies success and failure. That kind of knowledge can only be paid in experience, something he has in plenty.
Rather than anticipating the worst, subscribing to the pandemonium and pausing the upcoming Beta launch, Jimmy saw possibility.
I love and respect that quality. Episode 5 is the polished product of the countless conversations we’ve had as a result of COVID-19. Indulging in my curiosity, he allowed me to pick his brain -and it didn’t disappoint.
Go With Your Gut -Always
Many entrepreneurs have that certain je ne sais quoi, which often allows us to see a situation clearly despite obvious difficulties and any emotional attachment. We tend to be intuitive beings, going with our gut, allowing empirical data to support and test what we already know to be right somewhere inside us.
In an uncertain world, that’s a skill you can bank on. Jimmy’s approach to business in COVID highlights that, pivoting as necessary to bring innovation to the forefront.
During the episode, he emphasizes the value of committing to the life you want as an entrepreneur, compensating with the resilience to adapt. The setting, people, and atmosphere may not be what you anticipated, moving forward, but by pivoting, you can start down a new path that may surprise you.
Sure the world is uncertain, but that doesn’t mean stop reaching for the kind of business and life you’ve worked your entire life for. If settling or giving up is not your M.O., you’re going to want to hear all the goodness inside.
This may be the proverbial message in a bottle that you’ve been waiting for. If that’s you – dive-in and listen to the full episode! I guarantee you that what comes next will change the way the world works, but who knows, it may also change someone’s life and business.
