30 Apr Phoenix Day
We, as entrepreneurs, need to phoenix forward in May
Phoenix is a bird that cyclically regenerates through fire…think Harry Potter. To pivot means to turn. Turning our businesses in May won’t be enough. We, as entrepreneurs, need to phoenix forward in May.
Entrepreneurship is absorbed in our cells. We strive for independence and contributions to society’s workforce in our own way. We know our path and it keeps calling. What we did before March 2020 will no longer fulfill the needs we strive to meet with our offerings and within ourselves. Acknowledging that we have all gone through death or near death by economic catastrophe, healing of self, transformation through panic then stillness. Now is the time for rebirth through shared knowledge and gut determination.
So where do we begin? We begin in the ashes like the bird. Opening our minds to the new needs, the new way of working. What have we learned through this experience? Our foundations were not enough. What strengths can we take with us as we grow anew? Who can help us? What and where do we start?
Invest in your lawyer and accountant. They are the foundation from which to grow.
“Every problem, every dilemma, every dead end we find ourselves facing in life, only appears unsolvable inside a particular frame or point of view. Enlarge the box, or create another frame around the data, and problems vanish, while new opportunities appear.” Ben and Rob Zander, The Art Of Possibility
It is a new world and it need us to Phoenix. I claim today is Phoenix Day. It is the day to Revive our collective works and goals. Together, as entrepreneurs, the world is ready for new beginnings.
