Adventure Calling? Or Same Old, Same Old?

Just when you think you’ve arrived.
You find there’s another mountain to climb.

Postcard from Barbara

During this confusing and chaotic time, I’ve been thinking about ways to find the hidden opportunities that are present. One obvious way to invest in yourself is to learn something that can feed your curiosity or add to your personal power tools.

As I was beginning to gather some resources to pass along to you, I got this alert from John Williams and decided to alert you before it’s too late to take advantage of his terrific program.

So even though I’ll be sending some other ideas for making the most of an unexpected gift of time caused by a change of plans, I wanted to make sure you knew about this upcoming way to invest some of that time. 

Here’s the message from my friend John Williams, bestselling author and founder of The Ideas Lab that I wanted to share with you because I thought it was very timely for what’s happening now:

How to launch your own successful business in 5 days (yes, even now)

The coronavirus situation is understandably occupying a lot of our thoughts right now. We are all wondering what to make of it, what actions are most prudent, and how to arrange our lives in a fast-changing and uncertain world.

Alongside our concerns for all our loved ones, a lot of people are understandably concerned for their livelihood. Jobs and businesses are at risk.

If you have a job, now is the time to create a plan B - consulting, freelancing, advising companies, creating an online business.

If your business relies on face-to-face interaction, you need to explore how to deliver the same service online - or consider other things you could do instead.

The key thing is not to just push it out of your mind until it’s too late.

Besides, when the world changes - in this instance everyone needs to stay at home - new opportunities open up to help people. 

  • Right now if you are a therapist or counsellor, people need you
  • If you are a coach, people need you
  • If you are a marketing or business expert, people need you
  • If you can connect us together online or even just entertain us, people need you

Above and beyond this, you have a chance to step up, make a more authentic connection with people, be helpful, and enter people’s hearts and minds.

Those of us who dare to do this will be remembered for a long time once we emerge into the light on the other side of this.

To help you find and launch your new venture - or reinvent what you are doing now - I’ve created a way to get my help completely free of charge.

If you don’t know me, I am founder of The Ideas Lab and author of several books (including Screw Work Let’s Play: How to do what you love and get paid for it) which have now been translated into ten languages. I have been featured in the Sunday Times, the FT, the Guardian, The Telegraph, Marketing Week, Elle magazine and many other publications.

I’ve helped thousands of people around the world to find their business idea, prove it works, and turn it into a working business - whether that’s a side hustle, escaping your job, or making millions.

Now I want to help you.

I’m inviting you to join 500+ people around the world in my FREE 5-Day Startup Challenge.

Over 5 days I will walk you through clarifying your idea, testing it out, putting it out into the world - and even making your first sale. You’ll get daily bitesize video lessons, live Q&A sessions with me, and a community of 500+ friendly, positive challengers.
