Advice for the Entrepreneur: Lee’s Tip #84

13 May 2014 Uncategorized

This is a reminder to keep calm when times are tough. What’s the first thing you do when you get bad news? Panic? Feel anxious? Fetal position in bed? Call a friend? Liquor cabinet? It’s OK to feel panic or anxiety or both. It’s your own body asking, “Should we fight or flee?” So that’s awesome; we know that the panic is natural. Here is the tip: Successful people get over panic quickly, then look for alternatives for solving the issue or at least dealing with it. Some people do it naturally — maybe due to their family, maybe thanks to a mentor. Keeping cool when bad news hits can be a learned skill. Try it. Right after the panic hits, relax; count to ten slowly (or meditate if you can); and decide on your alternatives. It works.

Advice for the Entrepreneur: Lee’s Tip #69

Last week, headlines read “Dow Drops 250 Points as World Markets Challenged”…and for a moment, I panicked. Not that I have a bunch of stocks; it’s just that world markets crumbling isn’t good for anyone, and we’re all in this boat together. So what do entrepreneurs do when they read such news? The successful ones take a deep breath and continue to do what they do the best: Sell stuff to people. Bad news happens all the time. When I worked in newsrooms, the motto was, “If it bleeds…it leads.” Panic increases TV, radio, newspaper and online news content audiences. Just keep on working to reach your goals for 2014. If we keep commerce flowing — without panicking or changing our already good business practices — we can help right almost any tipped boat.
