Every business has its issues, and don’t let anyone have you think that everything is always rosy on the other side. Business setbacks are inevitable, but perspective and response are everything. In this episode, I want to share with you some encouraging tips that can help you overcome business setbacks you might be experiencing in your own online business and what you can do to overcome them.
Listen to the episode.
Listen to “Overcoming Business Setbacks as a Solopreneur” on Spreaker.
Don’t allow your business setbacks to identify you.
A setback can be something going on in your personal life where you can’t focus, or it could be a financial strain. Distinguish what your particular setback is and face it. For some of us, it’s pricing strategy, for others it’s knowledge. Listen to the podcast (play button above) to hear my personal story as I share which of these setbacks I struggled with in the beginning stages of my business journey.
Please don’t compare yourself with other businesses…we’ve all been through some tough times. No one is perfect.
2. Recover quickly from your business setbacks
You can’t look back but you have to keep moving forward. Recovering quickly means salvaging what you can and learning from past mistakes. If you don’t make any mistakes you can’t grow – in any area of life (including business). Look at your mistakes as an opportunity to learn a valuable lesson so that you are stronger for your future endeavors.
Remember, you are a winner! Get back up and try again!
3. Learn from your past but keep moving forward.
Yes, it might be embarrassing and painful. It may hurt badly. You may feel like a failure. But pick yourself back up, and try again from a different angle. Keep going. The point is- don’t give up.
Get up, dust yourself off and keep going. You have goals but just because you have a setback don’t let them keep you from crushing your goals.
Whatever your lessons are, you should learn them fast (because they will inevitably come back around again.)
