In my previous post, I wrote about how to develop if not grow your business during the Corona virus outbreak.
Today, I want to talk about what could be the next step for many entrepreneurs. What can we do right now while staying home?
1. Learn. Now is the time to start gearing up for the future. Improve your skills in whatever field you consider necessary. If you don't want to invest much, Coursera and Masterclass providing solid courses for a fair price.
In case you want to get better with your writing, here are a few options.
2. Start creating your online product - be it a freebie, a masterclass, a workshop, a course or a private consultation. What to consider:
Other fish in the sea. If you happen to come across exactly the same product, you'd like to offer. Don't despair or give up a there is no such thing as 'exactly' the same product. We all have different voices and a different set of skills, experiences and knowledge to offer.
Timing. Understandably, we all want to get into the online products asap. However, sooner doesn't mean better. I don't expact a decrease in interest to the online products any time soon (read decennia). So it may be wise to wait a bit and spend that time on something significantly valuable for your customer.
Resources: Melyssa Griffin offers plenty of 'to the point' webinars and courses to get your creative juices going.
