5 Things Entrepreneurs Can Do Before They PANIC

March 27, 2020

by Derrick Hayes the “enTIEtainer

After not being able to go to work and seeing the effects on others because of Covid19 and the Coronavirus I wanted to give some motivation and inspiration to reach those that I can so that they won’t PANIC and through this word I give you 5 Things Entrepreneurs Can Do Before They PANIC.

P is for Press. It is the time to think now and think later and one way to do that is to write and send out a press release. If you don’t know how to write one google how to write a press release or simply answer who, what, where, when and why you are in business. Post your release on social media and send out to your media contacts and it can help you get media coverage where you can be quoted or asked to be interviewed.

A is for Article. Find publications in your industry and contact them to see if they are open for new articles and even offer your expertise to write a weekly or monthly column. Newspapers, Magazines and online blogs can do one or two things and that is to pay you for your work or allow you to have a resource box at the end of your message where you get to promote you and what you do.

N is for Networking. Keep networking so that your connections will have you in position when you come out of the crisis. Have you said hello to anyone in your network lately? Do you know what they have or need for their life or business? Use your PA (Press and Articles) to reintroduce yourself to some and newly introduce yourself to others. This effectively can be done online in your social media posts and also offline by sending out a positive text message with links to your information.

I is for Inspiration. Pull out a sheet of paper and write down as many ideas as you can that can help your business grow. Give yourself a goal to brainstorm until you get 10 ideas then go for 20 and 30.  When new ideas come to you add them to your list. In your mind think of ways to make these ideas come to life and think of how you can make them work versus how they won’t work for you.

C is for Create. Take some of the ideas that you wrote down and turn those into products and services. Things won’t happen for you overnight unless get to work overnight and make them happen for yourself. Some of the work you have already done in the past can easily be turned into eBooks or reports that you can sell for profit or give away to create awareness or buzz. If you have 10 articles already written they can easily be turned into 10 chapters that can give you a nicely written 10 to 20 page book others can read that it will also give them a reason as to why they should do business with your platform.

If developing or inventing is not your cup of tea right now simply ask others what they need and find ways and the resources to serve them. Look at it like this if you are a go to person now you will also be the go to person later. Have the mindset to be in business or to help others take care of their business.

Before you PANIC ask yourself are you getting Press, writing Articles, Networking, Inspiring ideas and Creating products and services.
