Preparing for the recovery
As we close out the first half of the year, you may be breathing a sigh of relief. What a past six months it’s been. And like us, you may have joked, “Can we just skip ahead to 2021?” The good news? We have six months of rebounding, growing, pausing, and resetting—to turn 2020 into a year of transformation. Are you ready? Making the most of this time
If there was ever a time to focus on you—your vision, your story, your business—it’s now. As you move into the second half of the year (post-July 4th celebrations), we suggest giving yourself time to pause and prioritize these three foundational areas of your work: 1. Building your LinkedIn presence with regular updates. Think sharing articles, writing original content, celebrating others’ accomplishments, and engaging with your clients or prospective clients. 2. Nurturing and deepening relationships from the comfort and ease of home. Yes, we know you may be Zoom’ed out, but now is the time to build your pipeline while you and your prospective clients are looking for connection and support. 3. Accepting remote work as the new normal. Adapt, or get left behind. Of course, you’re not alone in this. Long before COVID-19 took over our lives, CoSolo was a remote community committed to accelerating your independent consultancy no matter where you are. We’re here to support you in this transition and to help you transform your business. As always, shoot us an email (or ping us on Slack if you’re already a member) if you’d like more support! We’re grateful to each of you for being here with us and building this powerful community of independent consultants, together.
