You won’t believe the changes that are about to happen. They could change everything about your business.
No, I don’t mean any of the announcements that people have been talking about so much lately. I just mean that changes happen rapidly in any business, and you need to be prepared for it.
You could read this again in a year, and I can almost guarantee there will be something in the news that has small business owners concerned. It could bean announcement about the economy, a change in Etsy, a change in Amazon, or any other industry change. Changes happen to businesses.
I know, it’s stressful and can cause all kinds of anxiety. But when you decide to start a business, that’s just one of the things you are signing up for. The good news is that you can handle it.
Did a trendy item you were selling go off-trend? Did a bunch of new competition pop up? Did a search engine change their algorithm? The type of change will determine the exact kind of action you take, but the important thing is that you take action.
I’ve seen so many business owners who get stuck in the “change is happening, I am freaking out!” trap. It’s easy to mourn the loss of the known, comfortable way that things were, but businesses will constantly need to change and adapt to stay in business.
Change happened (and will keep on happening). What are you going to do about it?
