Unless you’ve been living under a rock you probably heard about the winter storm Texas has last week. We had ongoing power outages and below-freezing temperatures. That week taught me a lot. It reminded me of all my blessings and also how to ask for help.
In this episode of Creatives Crushing Anxiety, I share the business lessons I learned during the freak snowstorm in Texas and how they can help you in your business.
You never know when a snowstorm will hit, when the internet will be down when you’ll get the flu. So working ahead is super helpful when life happens.
Have Great Support
Surrounding yourself with great people you can trust and lean on during tough times will make it easier for you to step away when you need to.
Bonus note: Celebrate the hell out of them when you return and show your appreciation (especially if it isn’t their responsibility to support you).
Give Yourself Grace
Sometimes things will be out of your control and that’s okay. It’s life. Give yourself grace, I tell my clients all the time to remember that you’re human and you can only do what you can do.
Emergencies don’t give you permission to be irresponsible. Communicate what is happening (when you can) so that people know your status is and can adjust their expectations.
Plan Ahead For Emergencies
We are so used to apps like Slack, WhatsApp and Voxer. They are a great way to keep a clear boundary between work life and personal life but having your client’s phone numbers in case of a real emergency is a great idea so you can communicate.
