Wednesday Wisdom: Make Change Your Friend

December 15, 2021

Wednesday Wisdom, Hump Day Inspiration for Women Entrepreneurs, Female Business Owners

A recent survey on LinkedIn revealed that 9 out of 10 people believe their lives will be very different in five years. In that same study, 1 in 3 people said they would avoid change if they could. These statistics leave us assuming most people understand modification is necessary in life, (and also in business) and we might not like it; but transformation in any area of life can be perceived as good or bad depending on the circumstances combined with your mental outlook and preparation.

If most of us believe the LinkedIn survey statistic that life is going to be very different in five years, how prepared are we for those changes. Do we have a flexible mindset or life plan? As women entrepreneurs we know in business, it is advised to revise our business plans at least annually. We can do that by beginning with an old plan and revising it or starting fresh. Talking to customers, reviewing your value proposition, seeing how the market has changed, and understanding what problems you are solving for clients, is a good place to begin.

Another way to confront change, is to create the change by shifting offerings, segmenting the market differently, creating different pricing, or even starting an exit strategy. Nothing lasts forever, so for those of us who don’t like change, ending an entrepreneurial endeavor might not feel good, but necessary, especially as the Pandemic lasts.

So, today’s Wednesday Wisdom, a couple weeks before 2021 ends, is to remind you that change doesn’t agree with most of us but its necessary. To be prepared for any change, you need a plan and the right attitude. Grab the bull by the horns for once if you are a procrastinator and do the necessary work to get moving onward. Strike out boldly knowing you aren’t alone in the process. Call a sister or sister entrepreneur to help or get a professional to advise you.

If you need true belief that change becomes adaptable in life, just look back personally 5 years ago and see what transformations you’ve gone through and how well you eventually did after the changes were done. You survived and modified plans to be where you are today. The same will happen for you again. Believe it and make change your friend.
