You know that spring in your step you may get after a coffee in the morning? Or the drive to power through your to-do list or action list each day?
Do you still have that? Or is it lacking at the moment and you are wondering what is going on…..
I was recently talking with my Mum (a chaplain and counsellor) about the loss and feelings that I was having and I was hearing within the Travel Agent Achiever community.
She identified it as grief. Grief and loss of a business we have grown. The stages of grief and how it may pop up at random times and we may also revisit the stages at different times.
As small business owners and the impact COVID-19 has had on our industry and businesses, I wanted to address this today and the feelings that we have experienced and then things that you can do to help right now within your business.
If you are feeling any of the emotions and feelings we discuss, please first and foremost seek help from either a professional or close person to you. You are not alone and I want you to know that you are worthy and you can do hard things.
One thing that we have been talking about inside our Travel Agent Achievers group is the process of grief. Dealing with the current situation as small business owners, I know we may have experienced this.
Not knowing who to talk to or not even sure how to open up are ok. I'm no expert but I've had my fair share of personal experiences to know when to seek help and support, and I encourage you to do so as well.
So in this episode, I will be sharing with you my own experiences with these different stages of grief. Some of my personal challenges and how I managed to move forward. Not to ask for sympathy but to let you know that you are not alone.
As you're listening to this episode and happen to find yourself in one of these stages, I want you to acknowledge that and know you are ok. Everyone deals with grief differently and whatever you decide to do for your business, the journey is one you can take.
If you want to invest in yourself and your travel business, know we have different levels of support for you as well here at Travel Agent Achievers.
We want to support you now and always into the future, so please plug into the community and share.
To help you make your first step, join us in our upcoming 5-Day Social Media Challenge. I want you to come through this time stronger than ever and this is a small but mighty step in that direction.
