What energises you when the going gets tough?

Being an SME business leader has never been tougher- whether you are riding the crest of the wave working all hours to optimise opportunities or flat lining and barely making progress or maybe having to close parts or all of your business.

Even the most resilient have moments when they feel overwhelmed with the enormity of the challenges ahead. The one thing that has helped me through the pandemic is creating new business connections and collaborations. Such a great way to re-energise and motivate when you’re just hitting a lull.

Taking the time to catch up with people in my networks has been really refreshing and so interesting. So a big thank you to real5 NetworkingPhoenix Consult LimitedWarrington ChamberWarrington Business Exchange and real5 Networking For Women. Surrounding yourself with people who motivate and energise you when the going gets tough is the one for me. It is the perfect way to shift your mindset away from the negatives as you focus on new and interesting conversations.

My new go to has been walk and talk 1:1’s – a great way of catching up and enjoying the fresh air plus Maisy gets a great walk!
