Strategies to release worry, build connections, and cultivate mental grit
With so much advice floating around, most entrepreneurs know what they should be doing. And yet, when it’s time to sit down and execute, you feel stuck.
This was true before social distancing, but it’s increasingly true now.
You might have already mastered the work-from-home fundamentals: keep a routine, dress for work, dedicate a space, etc.
Simple tips to use what you already have

Kajabi Heroes share their pricing strategies
It may feel like a weird time to launch a new offer or even start a new business online. You know you have something valuable to share… but will customers be able to afford it right now? Should you lower your prices? How do business owners find the right balance between revenue and making your offers accessible at a time like this?
You’re not alone if you’re struggling with these questions. The good news is—after speaking to entrepreneurs, experts, and influencers actually running online businesses—right now may be the perfect time to build together.

Prime time to pivot
That little voice inside has been prodding, nagging, pleading with you the last few weeks. As social distancing has started affecting every industry, you’ve been thinking deeply about your business. How do you respond to the new reality? You’re an entrepreneur after all, and you’re hardwired to look for new opportunities.
Now is the time to pivot—not out of desperation or to stay afloat, but to discover growth strategies you might’ve never considered before. Some of the most innovative companies like Twitter, PayPal, and Groupon evolved from entirely different beginnings. In the last few weeks, lesser-known businesses have made sweeping changes to deliver entirely new products.
3 stages to finding your footing amid uncertainty
For many entrepreneurs, building a business was about breaking free from cubicle life. It was about going out in the world and doing what you love: speaking to audiences, performing on stage, training clients in the gym.
But recently, due to a global health crisis, we’ve all found ourselves stuck indoors.
If live events and in-person services play a critical role in your business, this means you’re suddenly facing a new reality. Your mix of offline and online business is going to have to shift entirely to the online space—at least for now.
