Lockdown, reflect

Almost all of us have been subject to change recently. We’ve adjusted to adapt with the new order ‘of things’ in different ways, admittedly some adapting under hugely difficult circumstances, but lockdown does have it’s advantages.

For many operating their own business, including myself, these past months of adjustment, pivot and learning have not only brought opportunity, but they’ve also brought about positive change.

Gone is much of the old routine, the admin, the commute, I’ve found more freedom for the entrepreneur in me(!) The dawn o’clock breakfast meetings have been replaced with a stroll to the beach with the dog, or through the woods. Mother nature has thrived without the noise and pollution, dog loves it, I love it and the extra O2 has done wonders for my appreciation for the new-order of breakfast meeting … with family.

This new routine has enabled an appreciation of technology, of my own time and efforts. I’ve found fresh thinking now, rediscovered values, I’m taking the time to call my clients, discussing their own story. We’re ‘chewing the fat,’ our common challenges and of course the wins, we’re smiling together and there appears to be more time and I’m even following up … with purpose.

Just to say hello, join in the conversation.

Yes, I could have simplified the above message by writing less, saying that the ‘common challenge’ of lockdown these past months has been a great leveller, right?

But what value to the reader if I hadn’t made you dwell, reflect?

For me, lockdown is about looking up, moving forward and realising that you can succeed, thrive even, via a shrinking marketplace if you simply stop for a minute, engage by reaching out, take time to smell the roses.

I love the coast and in particular, the area in which I live, the North East of England. It's an uncomplicated life, for the past twelve years I've been away from the 'big smoke' ... and the decision to relocate my business to the North has been the best move of my career. So far. I am a writer and have a lifetime of experience in publishing and personal development. I now consider myself a specialist in helping my clients with memoirs - that could entail a biography, or simply bringing diary pages to life. I tend not to advertise my business, word of mouth has always been kind so it's no surprise that I do spend a couple of days per week networking. Peer collaboration can be very rewarding. Therefore, if you'd like to join me fortnightly for Wednesday ZOOM or either Tuesday or Thursday for (in-person) morning coffee, please get in touch. I'd love to meet you and perhaps help in any way possible. Thank you for stopping by the website. engage, develop, grow ... with Go! charliekenny@live.co.uk
