Back to SME: SOS

IGTV – creativity in crisis

In my bulletin today, I’m talking about the news we all heard last night regarding our economy – it is scary stuff… but I hope my thoughts help. I’m also talking about the changing world, why there’s no better time to start a business and how to find your true passion and maybe even a skillset worth selling!

It might feel daunting, but I truly believe that now more than ever is the right time to start a business or even side hustle! Did you know in times of quarantine, William Shakespeare and Isaac Newton did some of their best work? Now I’m not saying you have to be THEM but… tough times push us to freedom for creative thoughts, excitement for the future and new ways of thinking.

I cannot deny that the headlines are filled with talk of an upcoming recession and whilst this is a terrifying thought, last night the Chancellor reminded us that “… coming out of this I want to make sure that this is the best place to start and grow your business!” So, have you got an idea itching away at you? Because those of you dreaming of a small business can use this time to be even more creative, to PIVOT (yes I said it again) your ideas and create more!

As ever, please share SME: SOS with any small businesses you know, so we can reach and help as many as possible through this difficult time!
